Introducing Arrested

Take the pain out of REST API creation with Arrested - batteries included for quick wins, highly extensible for specialist requirements.

from arrested import ArrestedAPI, Resource, Endpoint, GetListMixin, CreateMixin,
from example.models import db, Character

api_v1 = ArrestedAPI(url_prefix='/v1')

characters_resource = Resource('characters', __name__, url_prefix='/characters')

class CharactersIndexEndpoint(Endpoint, GetListMixin, CreateMixin):

    name = 'list'
    many = True

    def get_objects(self):

        characters = db.session.query(Character).all()
        return characters

    def save_object(self, obj):

        character = Character(**obj)
        return character
