– Pecan REST Controller

The module includes support for writing fully RESTful controllers in your Pecan application.


Bases: object

A base class for REST based controllers. Inherit from this class to implement a REST controller.

RestController implements a set of routing functions which override the default pecan routing with behavior consistent with RESTful routing. This functionality covers navigation to the requested resource controllers, and the appropriate handling of both the common (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) as well as custom-defined REST action methods.
