README.rst

rest_toolkit is a Python package which provides a very convenient way to build REST servers. It is build on top of Pyramid, but you do not need to know much about Pyramid to use rest_toolkit.

Quick example

This is a minimal example which defines a Root resource with a GET view, and starts a simple HTTP server. If you run this example you can request http://localhost:8080/ and you will see a JSON response with a status message.

from rest_toolkit import quick_serve
from rest_toolkit import resource


@resource('/')
class Root(object):
    def __init__(self, request):
        pass


@Root.GET()
def show_root(root, request):
    return {'status': 'OK'}


if __name__ == '__main__':
    quick_serve()
