Django Oscar API
This package provides a RESTful API for django-oscar, it's based on django-rest-framework and it exposes most of Oscar's functionality. You can find the source code on GitHub. If you have any questions or problems using Oscar API, please use the Github issuetracker.
This version of Oscar API is compatbile with python 2.7 / 3.5 / 3.6 / 3.7 and the following django versions:
- Oscar 1.5.3 / 1.6.x
- requires djangorestframework>=3.4
Django 2.0 and 2.1:
- Oscar 1.6.x
- requires djangorestframework>=3.7
- requires python >=3.5
See Travis for the current tested platforms.
Please see the installation instructions of Oscar to install Oscar and how to create your own project. Then you can install Oscar API by simply typing:
$ pip install django-oscar-api
Or you could add
django-oscar-api to your project dependencies.
If you would like to install the current development version, use this:
$ pip install git+https://github.com/django-oscar/django-oscar-api.git
You can use the oscarapi application in an oscar ecommerce site without any customization. See for more information: :doc:`/usage/outofthebox`
Play around with the sandbox
You can also install Oscar API from source and run the sandbox site to play around a bit. Make sure to create a virtualenv first.
$ mkvirtualenv oscarapi $ git clone https://github.com/django-oscar/django-oscar-api.git $ cd django-oscar-api $ make sandbox # run the server $ python sandbox/manage.py runserver
Now you can browse the API at http://localhost:8000/api. Here you can actually use the API already (a cool feature of django-rest-framework) by using your browser and test which JSON formats you can send/receive.
But I want to customise the standard serializers / views!
Probably you want this, because you already extended or changed Oscar's functionality by forking it's apps right? See :doc:`/usage/customizing_oscarapi` for this.
