Django Rest Framework

What is Django Rest Framework?

Django REST Framework (DRF) is a popular open source framework for building web APIs in Django. DRF has an API that makes it easy to create and validate forms, serialize them to JSON, and route form submissions to the appropriate backend function or view. This is useful for creating custom input fields on your API views so you can accept data from all kinds of different sources. Serializers are functions that take incoming HTTP requests and return outgoing data as JSON responses. They're like the opposite of views; where views accept data and render it into HTML, serializers accept HTML (or some other format) and convert it into JSON. This makes them ideal for constructing API endpoints that will provide data in response to standard HTTP requests like POST/GET/PUT/DELETE.
