You may remember when Piston was the go-to framework for writing RESTful APIs in Django. We sure do. We remember feeling like we wanted more; like we were missing something. Tastypie filled that void.
Tastypie is a powerful Django framework for writing RESTful APIs. Lintel has used it successfully on several of our clients' websites, creating clean, effective interfaces.
Tastypie is certainly a sound choice of RESTful API frameworks, with ample flexibility and support for HTTP, XML, and JSON. For a long time Tastypie was Lintel's REST-based framework of choice, but we've since come to prefer the Django REST framework for the ease with which it integrates into existing Django projects.
