REST APIs with Django: Build powerful web APIs with Python and Django

The internet is powered by RESTful APIs. With the combination of the Django web framework and Django REST Framework, software developers can build robust web APIs in the Python programming language with a minimal amount of code. If you already know basic Django you can transform your websites into APIs in a matter of minutes. In this book we'll go well beyond the basics and build three progressively more complex APIs. We will learn how to connect a backend API to any frontend (such as React). And dive into advanced topics like user authentication, permissions, documentation, and more.
