Working with wrappers to write API views
Our code in the
games/views.py file declared a
JSONResponse class and two function-based views. These functions returned
JSONResponse when it was necessary to return JSON data and a
django.Http.Response.HttpResponse instance when the response was just of an HTTP status code.
No matter the accepted content type specified in the HTTP request header, the view functions always provide the same content in the response body-JSON. Run the following two commands to retrieve all the games with different values for the
Accept request header-
http :8000/games/ Accept:text/html http :8000/games/ Accept:application/json
The following are the equivalent curl commands:
curl -H 'Accept: text/html' ...
