For Django, besides tastypie and piston, django-rest-framework is a promising one worth mentioning. I’ve already migrated one of my projects on it smoothly.
Django REST framework is a lightweight REST framework for Django, that
aims to make it easy to build well-connected, self-describing RESTful
from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, url from djangorestframework.resources import ModelResource from djangorestframework.views import ListOrCreateModelView, InstanceModelView from myapp.models import MyModel class MyResource(ModelResource): model = MyModel urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^$', ListOrCreateModelView.as_view(resource=MyResource)), url(r'^(?P<pk>[^/]+)/$', InstanceModelView.as_view(resource=MyResource)), )
Take the example from the official site, all above codes provide api, self explained documentation (like soap based webservice) and even sandboxing for testing. Very convenient.
