You must define an API server that uses the API or APIs you have created. To define an API server:
Create a separate module, for example,
services.py(you can use any name you want). The following sample shows what you would need to add to this file:
import endpoints import your_api application = endpoints.api_server([your_api.yourApi])
your_apiis the name of the API you are exposing. Notice that if the API is implemented in several classes,
your_apiis the collection of classes, as described in Creating an API Implemented with Multiple Classes .
Notice that we describe using a separate module for the API server: this is not a requirement! If you are defining multiple APIs (
remote.Servicesubclasses) that are defined in multiple files, it might be preferable to have a separate module for your API Server in order to import all these class files. However, alternatively, you could just add the required
endpoints.api_servercode shown above to the module where you define your API. If you are defining only a single API, it may be preferable to define the API server in the same file where you define your API because it doesn't need to import any other classes.
app.yamlfile, map the API server you just created to the endpoints location as follows:
handlers: # Endpoints handler - url: /_ah/spi/.* script: services.application
servicesis the file name you used for your API server module. Notice that the endpoints path must be
/_ah/spirelative to the application, not the
/_ah/apipath that is used for non Endpoints applications.
Set the runtime to Python 2.7, since Endpoints is no longer available in the Python 2.5 runtime:
application: your-app-id version: 1 runtime: python27 api_version: 1
Add Endpoints to the Libraries section of
app.yaml, since the Endpoints library is not included by default:
libraries: - name: endpoints version: 1.0
Note that you can specify the desired Endpoints library version. (Currently, the only version available is the GA version, 1.0.)
