This Django plugin offers an abstraction layer over remote JSON data (Inspired by RoR's ActiveResource).
Pull request Compare This branch is 1 commit ahead of mallipeddi:master.



This module offers a nice API to access remote JSON resources from within your Django applications. The API is intentionally kept as close as possible to the Django DB-API. So accessing data from a remote JSON API should feel just like an attempt to fetch the data from a database. It is inspired by Ruby on Rails' ActiveResource library.

  • pipes has been renamed to django_pipes because pipes conflicts with a module's name that ships with the Python distribution by default. You could do something like import django_pipes as pipes in your code.
