Tornado_jsonapi

Build Status Coverage Status Requirements Status PyPi version Documentation Status GitHub License

Tornado_jsonapi is a Python 3.3+ library for creating JSON API (as per jsonapi.org specification) using Tornado web framework. It features

  • semi-automatic API generation using provided JSON schema of resource;
  • support for arbitrary data sources, including SQLAlchemy and PostgreSQL (via DBAPI2 support layer);
  • support for asynchronous data source operations;
  • strict jsonapi.org specification conformance.

Usage

import sqlite3
import tornado.ioloop
import tornado.web
import tornado_jsonapi.handlers
import tornado_jsonapi.resource

schema = {
    "title": "post",
    "properties": {
        "text":
        {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "author":
        {
            "type": "string"
        }
    }
}

res = tornado_jsonapi.resource.DBAPI2Resource(
    schema, sqlite3, sqlite3.connect(':memory:'))
res._create_table()

application = tornado.web.Application([
    (
        r"/api/posts/([^/]*)",
        tornado_jsonapi.handlers.APIHandler,
        dict(resource=res)
    )
])
application.listen(8888)
tornado.ioloop.IOLoop.current().start()
