Brian #1: Restful API testing with Tavern

Michael #2: Uplink


RESTful client API via decorators
Create a class to represent the API
Add methods with arguments, map to API calls.
e.g.


@get("/users/{username}")
def get_user(self, username):
"""Get a single user."""



Uplink includes support for concurrent requests with asyncio (for Python 3.4+)
Twisted (for all supported Python versions)
Not production ready, but very exciting.
