JSONAPI::Resources Gem Version Build Status Code Climate

Join the chat at

JSONAPI::Resources, or "JR", provides a framework for developing an API server that complies with the JSON:API specification.

Like JSON:API itself, JR's design is focused on the resources served by an API. JR needs little more than a definition of your resources, including their attributes and relationships, to make your server compliant with JSON API.

JR is designed to work with Rails 5.1+, and provides custom routes, controllers, and serializers. JR's resources may be backed by ActiveRecord models or by custom objects.


Full documentation can be found at, including the v0.10 alpha Guide specific to this version.

Demo App

We have a simple demo app, called Peeps, available to show how JR is used.

Client Libraries

JSON:API maintains a (non-verified) listing of client libraries which should be compatible with JSON:API compliant server implementations such as JR.


Add JR to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'jsonapi-resources'

And then execute:


Or install it yourself as:

gem install jsonapi-resources

For further usage see the v0.10 alpha Guide
