Microtask: Create a very simple REST API for SortingHat
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Create a JSON file with some identities, in the format expected by SortingHat. Load it to create a SortingHat MySQL database. Create a very simple Flask or Django application providing a REST interfate. This very simple REST interface will provide a single resource, /list, which when accessed through HTTP GET will produce a JSON file, in SortingHat format, from the information in the database.

It can be tested as follows:

curl -X GET http://server/list

This should return the mentioned JSON file. The format of that JSON file is that used for the "load" and "export" command options for sortinghat, see section "Import/Export", at the end of README.md.

As a result of this task, provide the link to a git repository with:

  • A MySQL SortingHat database dump
  • The JSON file, in SortingHat format, used to create it
  • All the Python source code of the application
  • A README.md file with clear and detailed instructions to deploy the application, including any configuration information needed.

Hi @Saylikarnik. Thanks for your interest! Apart from what @01tonythomas already wrote: As you commented on this task, do you have a specific question about this task?
Sortinghat is hosted on GitHub, hence https://github.com/MetricsGrimoire/sortinghat would be the repository to create pull requests for.
