REST Framework YAML

build-status-image pypi-version

YAML support for Django REST Framework

Full documentation for the project is available at http://jpadilla.github.io/django-rest-framework-yaml.

Overview

YAML support extracted as a third party package directly from the official Django REST Framework implementation. It's built using the PyYAML package.

Requirements

  • Python (2.7, 3.3, 3.4)
  • Django (1.6, 1.7)

Installation

Install using pip...

$ pip install djangorestframework-yaml

Example

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_PARSER_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework_yaml.parsers.YAMLParser',
    ),
    'DEFAULT_RENDERER_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework_yaml.renderers.YAMLRenderer',
    ),
}

You can also set the renderer and parser used for an individual view, or viewset, using the APIView class based views.

from rest_framework import routers, serializers, viewsets
from rest_framework_yaml.parsers import YAMLParser
from rest_framework_yaml.renderers import YAMLRenderer

# Serializers define the API representation.
class UserSerializer(serializers.HyperlinkedModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        model = User
        fields = ('url', 'username', 'email', 'is_staff')


# ViewSets define the view behavior.
class UserViewSet(viewsets.ModelViewSet):
    queryset = User.objects.all()
    serializer_class = UserSerializer
    parser_classes = (YAMLParser,)
    renderer_classes = (YAMLRenderer,)

Sample output

---
-
  email: jpadilla@example.com
  is_staff: true
  url: "http://127.0.0.1:8000/users/1/"
  username: jpadilla
