Django API with Django Rest Framework and AngularJS-Resource

This sample project is the companion of a blog post on how to get started with Django Rest Framework and AngularJS.


To setup and run the sample code, you're going to need npm from NodeJS available to install the frontend code.



If you have a docker host, you can simply use docker-compose to build the example, then open http://localhost:

docker-compose up
