About Packt


In this chapter, we understood some of the additional features that the Django REST framework adds to our RESTful Web Service, the browsable API. We used a web browser to work with our first web service built with Django.

We learned to make HTTP GET, POST, PUT, OPTIONS, and DELETE requests with the browsable API. We were able to easily test CRUD operations with a web browser. The browsable API allowed us to easily interact with our RESTful Web Service. We will take advantage of additional features in the forthcoming chapters.

Now that we understand how easy it is to take advantage of the browsable API with the Django REST framework, we will move on to more advanced scenarios and we will start a new RESTful Web Service. We will work with advanced relationships and serialization.
