Arguments in the post method below are transposed. The id argument should come before reqargs, e.g. def post(self, id, reqargs):

More generally, the dictionary of parsed arguments is passed as a positional argument after self and any regex match groups which are passed by tornado as arguments to the request handler's get/post/etc. method.

from webargs import fields
from webargs.tornadoparser import use_args

class HelloHandler(tornado.web.RequestHandler):

    @use_args({'name': fields.Str()})
    def post(self, reqargs, id):
        response = {
            'message': 'Hello {}'.format(reqargs['name'])
