## Overview

Tornado-JSON is a small extension of [Tornado]( with the intent of providing the tools necessary to get a JSON API up and running quickly.

Some of the key features the included modules provide:

* Input and output **[JSON Schema]( validation** by decorating RequestHandlers with `@schema.validate`
* **Automated route generation** with `routes.get_routes(package)`
* **Automated [GFM]( API documentation** using schemas and provided descriptions
* **Standardized JSON output** using the **[JSend](** specification

## Usage

Check out the [Hello World demo]( for a quick example and the [accompanying walkthrough]( in the documentation. And then [**explore Tornado-JSON on readthedocs for the rest!**](

import tornado.ioloop
from tornado_json.routes import get_routes
from tornado_json.application import Application

import mywebapp

# Automatically generate routes for your webapp
routes = get_routes(mywebapp)
# Create and start application
application = Application(routes=routes, settings={})
