restless

A lightweight REST miniframework for Python.

Works great with Django, Flask, Pyramid, Tornado & Itty, but should be useful for many other Python web frameworks. Based on the lessons learned from Tastypie & other REST libraries.

  • Python 3.2+ (with shims to make broke-ass Python 2.6+ work)
