## 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={})

## Installation

* For the possibly stable

pip install Tornado-JSON

* For the latest and greatest

git clone
cd Tornado-JSON
sudo python install
