Sphinx HTTP Domain

Description

Sphinx plugin to add an HTTP domain, allowing the documentation of RESTful HTTP methods.

HTTP methods

You can document simple methods, wrap any arguments in the path with curly-braces:

.. http:method:: GET /api/foo/bar/{id}/{slug}

   :arg id: An id
   :arg slug: A slug

   Retrieve list of foobars matching given id.

Query string parameters are also supported, both mandatory and optional:

.. http:method:: GET /api/foo/bar/?id&slug

   :param id: An id
   :optparam slug: A slug

   Search for a list of foobars matching given id.

As well, you can provide types for parameters and arguments:

.. http:method:: GET /api/foo/bar/{id}/?slug

   :arg integer id: An id
   :optparam string slug: A slug

   Search for a list of foobars matching given id.

Fragments are also supported:

.. http:method:: GET /#!/username

   :fragment username: A username

   Renders a user's profile page.

Plus, you can document the responses with their response codes:

.. http:method:: POST /api/foo/bar/

   :param string slug: A slug
   :response 201: A foobar was created successfully.
   :response 400:

   Create a foobar.

To refer to an HTTP method, use :http:method::

.. http:method:: GET /api/
   :label-name: get-root
   :title: API root

The :http:method:`get-root` contains all of the API.

HTTP responses

Documenting responses is also simple:

.. http:response:: Foobar object

   A foobar object looks like this::

   .. source-code:: js
      {
         'slug': SLUG
      }

   :data string SLUG: A slug
   :format: JSON

To refer to an HTTP response, use :http:response::

.. http:response:: Foobar object

A :http:response:`foobar-object` is returned when you foo the bar.
