* [Flask](http://flask.pocoo.org/) >= 0.5


## Get Started

Install using [pip](https://pip.pypa.io/) or [easy_install](http://pythonhosted.org/setuptools/easy_install.html):
```bash
pip install Flask-RAML
easy_install Flask-RAML
```

Optionally, you can specify `yaml` or `raml` extras to install related dependencies:
```bash
pip install "Flask-RAML[yaml,raml]"
easy_install "Flask-RAML[yaml,raml]"
```


## Features

- Load [RAML](http://raml.org/) API specification stored in any of supported markup languages using [PyDataLoader](https://github.com/salsita/pydataloader)
- Support [YAML](http://yaml.org/) using [PyYAML](http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML)
- Support [RAML](http://raml.org/) using [pyraml-parser](https://github.com/an2deg/pyraml-parser)
- Support [JSON](http://json.org/) using [Python 2.6+ json module](https://docs.python.org/2/library/json.html) or [Python 3.x json module](https://docs.python.org/3/library/json.html)
- Provide enhanced [PyRAML](https://github.com/salsita/pyraml) API model.
- Reuse PyRAML extensible API spec loader and parameter converters.
- Use extensible [flask-mime-encoders](https://github.com/salsita/flask-mime-encoders) for request/response body decoding/encoding.
- Provide enhanced route decorator with optional API request/response middleware layers.
- Auto-decode request body based on `Content-Type` header (for JSON, it reuses Flask auto-decoding).
- Convert and validate URI/query parameters.
- Auto-encode response with specified route encoders mimetype.
- Make it simple to serve API example response of requested/default MIME type.
- Make also simple to serve example responses for all unhandled API resources and methods.


## Tasks

- [ ] Release example API spec and Flask API server.
- [x] Create repository [flask-raml-example](https://github.com/salsita/flask-raml-example)
- [ ] Design a modular sample API spec with examples and reusable schemas, types, traits and markdown docs.
- [x] Add gulp tasks to generate HTML docs and YAML spec from the sample RAML API specs.
- [ ] Add gulp tasks for API testing using [abao](https://github.com/cybertk/abao/)
- [ ] Add example app deployment from Github via API yaml/html build on CircleCI to uWSGI/Flask site on Heroku.
- [ ] Extend [raml2html](https://github.com/kevinrenskers/raml2html) API docs generator.
- [ ] Add parameter details (min/max lenght/value, pattern).
- [ ] Add API console for testing.
- [ ] Add autoselect encoder (based on request `Accept` header) to [flask-mime-encoders](https://github.com/salsita/flask-mime-encoders)
- [ ] Add request body JSON schema validation.
- [ ] Extend [raml-js-parser](https://github.com/raml-org/raml-js-parser) to embed local JSON schema references for validation.
- [ ] Optionally extend [pyraml-parser](https://github.com/an2deg/pyraml-parser) too.
- [ ] Add optional request body JSON schema validation to the route decorator.
