import apikit

# Returning objects as response (only basic JSON-encodable types supported):
class MyApiHander(apikit.ApiHandler):
    def get(self):
        self.write_response({'result' : 'sucess',
                             'x' : 1, y : [1,2,3]})

# Authentication:
class MyProtectedResourceBase(apikit.ProtectedResource):
    def authenticate(self, callback):
        if self.get_argument('password') != '12345':
            raise tornado.web.HTTPError(403, "Incorrect or missing password!")

class MyProtectedResource(MyProtectedResourceBase):
