Django Rest Framework (DRF) Web APIs for Django ¶
Django REST framework is a powerful and flexible toolkit for building Web APIs .
Some reasons you might want to use REST framework:
The Web browsable API is a huge usability win for your developers.
Authentication policies including optional packages for OAuth1 and OAuth2.
Serialization that supports both ORM and non-ORM data sources.
Customizable all the way down - just use regular function-based views if you don’t need the more powerful features.
Extensive documentation, and great community support.
There is a live example API for testing purposes, available here .
