Django mini-framework creating RESTful APIs


Piston is a relatively small Django application that lets you create application programming interfaces (API) for your sites.

It has several unique features:

   * Ties into Django's internal mechanisms.
   * Supports OAuth out of the box (as well as Basic/Digest or custom auth).
   * Doesn't require tying to models, allowing arbitrary resources.
   * Speaks JSON, YAML, Python Pickle & XML (and HATEOAS).
   * Ships with a convenient reusable library in Python.
   * Respects and encourages proper use of HTTP (status codes, ...).
   * Has built in (optional) form validation (via Django), throttling, etc.
   * Supports streaming, with a small memory footprint.
   * Stays out of your way.
