Integration with Django¶
Django backend is optionaly supported. Library itself does not depend on Django.
Django integration is similar project to project. Starting from version 1.8.4 json-rpc support it and provides convenient way of integration. To add json-rpc to Django project follow steps.
Create api instance¶
If you want to use default (global) object, skip this step. In most cases it is enougth to start with it, even if you plan to add another version later. Default api is located here:
from jsonrpc.backend.django import api
If you would like to use different api versions (not, you could name methods differently) or use cudtom dispatcher, use
from jsonrpc.backend.django import JSONRPCAPI api = JSONRPCAPI(dispatcher=<my_dispatcher>)
Later on we assume that you use default api instance
Add api urls to the project¶
In your urls.py file add
urlpatterns = patterns( ... url(r'^api/jsonrpc/', include(api.urls)), )
Add methods to api¶
@api.dispatcher.add_method def my_method(request, *args, **kwargs): return args, kwargs
first argument of each method should be request. In this case it is possible to get user and control access to data
Make requests to api¶
To use api, send POST request to api address. Make sure your message has correct format. Also json-rpc generates method’s map. It is available at <api_url>/map url.
