An API library for Django

A minimalist approach to object de/serialisers, RESTful views, and RPC views.


  1. Modular

    Unlike some tools, the Serialiser definition is separate from the API.

    This not only makes it easier to have different 'shapes' of data for different endpoints, but also allows using them in more places, not just your API.

  1. Simple

    If you want an API that provides every feature ever, go look at Django REST Framework. But if you want something simple and fast, this is your tool.



It is NOT necessary to add nap to your INSTALLED_APPS. It does not provide models, templates, template tags, or static files.

Tests are currently run for Python 3.3-3.6.

Django versions from 1.8 to 1.11 are known to work.
