restifier 1.0.4

A data validation and REST auto-documenter for APIs.

Restifier is a python library for creating and documenting RESTful APIs.
It includes a middleware component, a set of decorators, and a “forms” library for validating/documenting requests. The middle generates a Swagger compatible JSON specification for the APIs automatically.

See for information on usage. In general, so create a payload validator construct a class like this:

class HelloMessage(Message):
    greeting = StringProperty(description="The greating.",
        validators=[regex(re.compile('^[A-Za-z]+$')), required()])

class HelloResponseMessage(Message):
    salutation = StringProperty(description="The response.")
    tags = StringProperty(repeated=True)
    request = StructuredProperty(HelloMessage)

Then decorate your handlers like this:

class HelloHandler(RequestHandler):

    @api(input=HelloMessage, output=HelloResponseMessage)
    def post(self, obj):
        return {'salutation':'You are the best.'}

Also, to auto-document, use the middleware:

routes = [
    ('/api/v1/hello', HelloHandler)

app = DocumentedMiddleware(
    api_overview="This is a super important API that does a lot of stuff."
