Eve

https://secure.travis-ci.org/nicolaiarocci/eve.png?branch=master

Eve is an out-of-the-box, highly customizable and fully featured RESTful Web API framework that you can use to effortlessly build and deploy your own APIs

Eve is Simple

from eve import Eve

app = Eve()
app.run()

The API is now live, ready to be consumed:

$ curl -i http://example.com/people
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

All you need to bring your API online is a database, a configuration file (defaults to settings.py) and a launch script. Overall, you will find that configuring and fine-tuning your API is a very simple process.

Eve is thoroughly tested under Python 2.6, Python 2.7 and Python 3.3.
