DRF Generators

Writing APIs can be boring and repetitive work. Don't write another CRUDdy view in Django Rest Framework <http://github.com/tomchristie/django-rest-framework>_. With DRF Generators, one simple command will generate all of your Views, Serializers, and even Urls for your Django Rest Framework application!

For a full step-by-step tutorial, check out my blog post <http://brobin.me/blog/2015/4/13/how-to-quickly-write-an-api-in-django>_!

This is not intended to give you a production quality API. It was intended to jumpstart your development and save you from writing the same code over and over for each model.

============

Installation

Install with pip:

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install drf-generators

or Clone the repo and install manually:

.. code-block:: bash

$ git clone https://github.com/brobin/drf-generators.git
$ cd drf-generators
$ python setup.py install

To use DRF Generators, add it your INSTALLED_APPS.

.. code-block:: python

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'rest_framework',
    'drf_generators',
    ...
)

Note: In order to use the APIView classes, you must have the rest framework DEFAULT_PAGINATION_CLASS and PAGE_SIZE set.

.. code-block:: python

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_PAGINATION_CLASS': 'rest_framework.pagination.PageNumberPagination',
    'PAGE_SIZE': 15
}

=====

Usage

To use the generators, run the following command, where app is the application to generate an API for.

.. code-block:: bash

$ python manage.py generate {app} {options}

========================== =================================================== Option Action ========================== =================================================== --serializers Generate only Serializers for your app. --views Generate only Views for your app. --urls Generate only urls for your app. --force Overwrite existing files without the warning prompt. -f, --format Format to use when generating views and urls. Valid options: viewset, apiview, function, modelviewset. Default: viewset. -d, --depth Serialization depth for related models. Default: 0 ========================== ===================================================

Example: Generate everything for the app api with function style views, overwriting existing files, with a serialization depth of 2.

.. code-block:: bash

$ python manage.py generate api --format function --force --depth=2

===========

Serializers

Drf Generators will create serializers.py for your application. It currently uses rest framework's ModelSerializer for serialization of the models defined in models.py.

.. code-block:: python

class ModelSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):

    class Meta:
        model = User

=====

Views

DRF Generators will create views.py for your application. It can generate ViewSet, APIView and function based views. Set the --format option when running the generator to pick the preferred style


ViewSet

python manage.py generate api --format viewset

.. code-block:: python

class ModelViewSet(ViewSet):

    def list(self, request):
        ...
    def create(self, request):
        ...
    def retrieve(self, request, pk=None):
        ...
    def update(self, request, pk=None):
        ...
    def destroy(self, request, pk=None):
        ...

APIView

python manage.py generate api --format apiview

.. code-block:: python

class ModelAPIView(APIView):

    def get(self, request, id, format=None):
        ...
    def put(self, request, id, format=None):
        ...
    def delete(self, request, id, format=None):
        ...

class ModelAPIListView(APIView):

    def get(self, request, format=None):
        ...
    def post(self, request, format=None):
        ...

Function

python manage.py generate api --format function

.. code-block:: python

@api_view(['GET', 'POST'])
def model_list(request):
    if request.method == 'GET':
        ...
    elif request.method == 'POST':
        ...

@api_view(['GET', 'PUT', 'DELETE'])
def model_detail(request, pk):
    if request.method == 'GET':
        ...
    elif request.method == 'PUT':
        ...
    elif request.method == 'DELETE':
        ...

ModelViewSet

python manage.py generate api --format modelviewset

.. code-block:: python

class MyModelViewSet(ModelViewSet):
    queryset = MyModel.objects.all()
    serializer_class = MyModelSerializer

====

Urls

Finally, DRF Generator will create you a default urls.py to match the View format you are using.


ViewSet & ModeViewSet Routes

.. code-block:: python

router = SimpleRouter()

router.register(r'model', views.ModelViewSet, 'Model')

urlpatterns = router.urls

APIView urls

.. code-block:: python

url(r'^model/([0-9]+)$', views.ModelAPIView.as_view()),
url(r'^model', views.ModelAPIListView.as_view()),

Function urls

.. code-block:: python

urlpatterns = [

    url(r'^model/(?P<pk>[0-9]+)$', views.model_detail),
    url(r'^model/$', views.model_list),

]

urlpatterns = format_suffix_patterns(urlpatterns)

=====

Tests

A full application built with drf-generators can be found in the tests directory <http://github.com/brobin/drf-generators/tree/master/tests>_. Instructions on running the tests can be found in the test project's README.
