mohawk-data-platform 0.9.3

A Django app for editing and publishing arbitrary JSON data in a form-based environment.

mohawk-data-platform is a Django app for editing and publishing arbitrary JSON data in a form-based environment.

Features

  • Define structured models, with custom fields and validation.
  • Create, edit and update instances defined models using the Django admin interface.
  • Group models into applications for bulk access.
  • Access models, instances and applications via a simple JSON API.
  • Cross-origin API requests via CORS and JSONP.

Installation

  1. Checkout the latest mohawk-data-platform release and copy or symlink the data directory into your PYTHONPATH. If using pip, run pip install mohawk-data-platform.
  2. Add 'data' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.
  3. Add url(r"^", include("data.urls", namespace="data")), to you urls.py file.
  4. Install and active the Django admin site, if not already present.

Admin usage

The bulk of the functionality for mohawk-data-platform is found within the admin UI. The basic workflow is:

  1. Create a Model, defining at least one Field.
  2. Create an Instance of that model.
  3. Optionally, create an Application.
  4. Edit the model, and add it to the application you created.

Any data you add to the system will be pubically-available via the API endpoints.

    "choices": [
        ["#ff0000", "Red"],
