Re: Django to serve JSON: overkill?


If the JSON is related to a data model, and if this model is elaborated and subject to evolution in the furure, Django can help a lot. Add Django RESTFramework to the combo to take care of the REST stuff.

If not, I'd suggest Falcon (, which is a light and very efficient framework made for developing REST based services. I've used it quite a lot for writing micro-services of a complex platform. Services working with data models are developed on top of Django. The other ones are Falcon based.

Hope this helps

Is it overkill to use Django just to dispatch url requests and to reply with JSON (i.e. not using at all the HTML template engine)?
