## Overview

Tornado-JSON is a small extension of [Tornado](http://www.tornadoweb.org/en/stable/) 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](http://json-schema.org/) validation** by decorating RequestHandlers with `@schema.validate`
* **Automated route generation** with `routes.get_routes(package)`
* **Automated [GFM](https://help.github.com/articles/github-flavored-markdown)-formatted API documentation** using schemas and provided descriptions
* **Standardized JSON output** using the **[JSend](http://labs.omniti.com/labs/jsend)** specification


## Usage

Check out the [Hello World demo](https://github.com/hfaran/Tornado-JSON/tree/master/demos/helloworld) for a quick example and the [accompanying walkthrough](http://tornado-json.readthedocs.org/en/latest/using_tornado_json.html) in the documentation. And then [**explore Tornado-JSON on readthedocs for the rest!**](http://tornado-json.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html#)

```python
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={})
application.listen(8888)
tornado.ioloop.IOLoop.instance().start()
```
