A basic JSON-RPC implementation for your Flask-powered sites based on django-json-rpc.

Some reasons you might want to use:

For support python 2.6.5+ or earlier use the branch py2k.

There is a live example API for testing purposes, available here.

Below: Screenshot from the browsable API


Adding Flask JSON-RPC to your application

  1. Installation
$ pip install Flask-JSONRPC


$ git clone git://github.com/cenobites/flask-jsonrpc.git
$ cd flask-jsonrpc
$ python setup.py install
  1. Getting Started

Create your application and initialize the Flask-JSONRPC.

from flask import Flask
from flask_jsonrpc import JSONRPC

app = Flask(__name__)
jsonrpc = JSONRPC(app, '/api')

Write JSON-RPC methods.

def index():
    return 'Welcome to Flask JSON-RPC'

All code of Example run.py.

  1. Running
$ python run.py
 * Running on
  1. Testing
$ curl -i -X POST -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "App.index", "params": {}, "id": "1"}' http://localhost:5000/api
HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json

  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": "1",
  "result": "Welcome to Flask JSON-RPC"

Testing your service

You can test your service using the provided web browsable API, available at http://localhost:5000/api/browse (if using the url patterns from above) or with the included ServiceProxy:

>>> from flask_jsonrpc.proxy import ServiceProxy
>>> server = ServiceProxy('http://localhost:5000/api')
>>> server.App.index()
{'jsonrpc': '2.0', 'id': '91bce374-462f-11e2-af55-f0bf97588c3b', 'result': 'Welcome to Flask JSON-RPC'}

We add the jsonrpc_version variable to the request object. It be either '1.0', '1.1' or '2.0'. Arg.

For more tests see Examples.
