This page hosts detailed specifications for Blueprint for the RESTful API.

Basic approach for the S3 architecture is to have a Web Services backend & a Javascript client front end.

RESTful APIs make this easier.

Web2Py generates fairly RESTful URLs anyway for the user-facing HTML pages, such as /sahana/pr/display_person/4

We can extend this for exporting raw data in other formats using the optional vars: /sahana/pr/display_person/4?[xml|csv]

This, obviously, requires us to build-in support into the Controllers, which should be done within the framework to make it easy for module writers to take advantage of.

Web2Py already supports export as JSON, CSV & RTF. Hope to extend this to XML using

Web2Py currently doesn't support HTTP PUT/DELETE/UPDATE (only GET).
