rest_framework_json_api.parsers module


class rest_framework_json_api.parsers.JSONParser

Bases: rest_framework.parsers.JSONParser

Similar to JSONRenderer, the JSONParser you may override the following methods if you need highly custom parsing control.

A JSON API client will send a payload that looks like this:

    "data": {
        "type": "identities",
        "id": 1,
        "attributes": {
            "first_name": "John",
            "last_name": "Coltrane"

We extract the attributes so that DRF serializers can work as normal.

media_type = 'application/vnd.api+json'

alias of rest_framework_json_api.renderers.JSONRenderer

static parse_attributes(data)
static parse_relationships(data)
static parse_metadata(result)

parse(stream, media_type=None, parser_context=None)

Parses the incoming bytestream as JSON and returns the resulting data
