Django Fiber


Announcement: We've upgraded to Django REST Framework 2. This means that if you want to use the latest Fiber and you use Django REST Framework 0.3.X or 0.4.X for your own project, you'll have to bite the bullet and upgrade your local REST Framework code.


Do you want to see a Django Fiber screencast, to get a feel for what it can do for you? Check it out here: http://vimeo.com/ridethepony/django-fiber

Or, if you want to quickly try out Django Fiber on your machine, install the Django Fiber example project: https://github.com/ridethepony/django-fiber-example

Convinced? Want to use Django Fiber in your own Django project? Then follow the instructions below:
