Django package that handles exporting of data

Project description

# UNICEF Rest Export

Django Rest Framework data export package that handles export/rendering to JSON, CSV, XLS, and HTML


## Installation

pip install unicef-rest-export


## Setup

Add ``unicef_rest_export`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS`` in settings

INSTALLED_APPS = [
...
'unicef_rest_export',
]


## Usage

A sample model view;

class AuthorView(ExportView):
queryset = Author.objects.all()
serializer_class = serializers.AuthorSerializer


A sample model viewset;

class AuthorViewSet(ExportViewSet):
queryset = Author.objects.all()
serializer_class = serializers.AuthorSerializer


To override or limit the renderers allowed, add ``EXPORT_RENDERERS`` to settings.
The current default is;

EXPORT_RENDERERS = (
"unicef_rest_export.renderers.ExportHTMLRenderer",
"unicef_rest_export.renderers.ExportCSVRenderer",
"unicef_rest_export.renderers.ExportJSONRenderer",
"unicef_rest_export.renderers.ExportExcelRenderer",
)

The following is a sample of transforming data;

class AuthorTransformView(ExportView):
queryset = Author.objects.all()
serializer_class = serializers.AuthorSerializer

def transform_books(self, data):
return [d["name"] for d in data]

def transform_dataset(self, dataset):
dataset.add_formatter("books", self.transform_books)
return dataset
