  • GitHub repo django-rest-framework

    Web APIs for Django. 🎸

    Project mention: I have a django server and a nodejs express server, how can I share a django session between both of them? | | 2021-11-22

    Django can store session data in a http-only cookie. If your node server has the same origin, it could be able to read the info from the cookie potentially. But it may be simpler to just expose an http endpoint on the Django side (perhaps using django-rest-framework) for the Node server to call, that returns whether the session is still valid. Then you could just use the utilities for authentication that already come with Django instead of trying to reproduce them in Node.

    Project mention: Registration and Authentication in Django apps with dj-rest-auth | | 2021-03-15

    If you are a Django developer and you are coding a REST API with authentication, you will find the dj-rest-auth package very useful. This project is a fork from django-rest-auth that is no longer maintained. As said, dj-rest-auth provides a set of REST API endpoints to manage user registration and authentication. After an easy installation and configuration, you will have endpoints for:

    Project mention: FUNCTOOLS CHANGED MY LIFE | | 2021-10-18

    I can't show any pics cuz of uk NDA and all that. I can tell you the gist of it though. FastAPI is already pretty good at the abstraction part.

I just used this cool ass package and used the partial function from functools to generate endpoints for every scenario/db tables.
