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 .
