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.
