drf-nested-routers 0.1.2

Nested resources for the Django Rest Framework

Latest Version: 0.11.1

**This is a work in progress. It "works for me" at,
but I cannot warranty that it fully "works everywhere" yet.**


This package provides routers and relations to create nested resources in the [Django Rest Framework](

Nested resources are needed for full REST URL structure, if one resource lives inside another.

The following example is about Domains and DNS Nameservers.
There are many domains, and each domain has many nameservers. The "nameserver" resource does not
exist without a domain, so you need it "nested" inside the domain.


You can install this library using pip:

```pip install drf-nested-routers```


The desired URL signatures are:
\domain\ <- Domains list
\domain\{pk}\ <- One domain, from {pk]
\domain\{domain_pk}\nameservers\ <- Nameservers of domain from {domain_pk}
\domain\{domain_pk}\nameservers\{pk} <- Specific nameserver from {pk}, of domain from {domain_pk}

How to do it (example):
from rest_framework_nested import routers
from views import DomainViewSet, NameserverViewSet

router = routers.SimpleRouter()
router.register(r'domains', DomainViewSet)

domains_router = routers.NestedSimpleRouter(router, r'domains', lookup='domain')
domains_router.register(r'nameservers', NameserverViewSet)

urlpatterns = patterns('',
url(r'^', include(router.urls)),
url(r'^', include(domains_router.urls)),
