Eve. The Simple Way to REST¶
Eve is an open source Python REST API framework designed for human beings. It allows to effortlessly build and deploy highly customizable, fully featured RESTful Web Services.
The codebase is thoroughly tested under Python 2.6-3.6, and PyPy.
Eve is Simple¶
from eve import Eve app = Eve() app.run()
The API is now live, ready to be consumed:
$ curl -i http://example.com/people HTTP/1.1 200 OK
All you need to bring your API online is a database, a configuration file (defaults to settings.py) and a launch script. Overall, you will find that configuring and fine-tuning your API is a very simple process.
Check out the live demo. If using a browser you will get XML back. For JSON in the browser, you might want to install Postman or similar extension and then set the Accept request header to application/json. If you are a CLI user (and you should), curl is your friend. The source code will show you how easy it is to run an API with Eve. You will also find usage examples for all common use cases (GET, POST, PATCH, DELETE and more). There is also a simple client app available.
