OpenSource Projects

At LevIT, our work on often larger-scale, data-centric web applications has led us to encounter and overcome numerous complex challenges.

Through our client projects, we've identified recurring problems that demanded innovative solutions. Rather than reinventing the wheel with each new project, we've developed a suite of tools and libraries to address these specific issues efficiently. In line with our commitment to community and progress, we've chosen to share these solutions as open-source software.

The following projects represent our contribution to the wider development community, born from real-world needs and refined through practical application. Each of these tools embodies our philosophy of creating elegant, efficient solutions to common development hurdles.

Django Classy Doc

Your Project's Custom API Documentation

As Django projects grow in scale and complexity, clear and comprehensive API documentation becomes crucial. While Django and Django REST Framework get such excellent documentation with CCBV and CDRF respectively, developers often find themselves lacking similar resources for their own custom code.

Enter Django-Classy-Doc, our open-source solution to this common challenge. Inspired by the aforementioned documentation sites, Django-Classy-Doc allows you to generate equally clear and navigable documentation for your project-specific code. This tool integrates with your Django application, automatically parsing and presenting your custom code in a familiar, user-friendly format.

By providing this level of clarity and accessibility, Django-Classy-Doc not only enhances your team's efficiency but also eases the onboarding process for new developers joining your project.

DRF Schema Adapter

Simplifying Large-Scale REST API Development

In the world of complex Django projects with hundreds or even thousands of models, creating and managing ViewSets and Serializers for each model can be a time-consuming and tedious process. Enter DRF-Schema-Adapter, a powerful solution designed to streamline REST API development with DRF.

DRF-Schema-Adapter acts as an intelligent wrapper around DRF's ViewSets and Serializers, dramatically reducing boilerplate code. With this tool, developers need only declare an Endpoint for each model, and DRF-Schema-Adapter takes care of the rest. This efficiency boost is particularly valuable during the initial scaffolding phase of a project, but its benefits extend throughout the entire development lifecycle.

As your project evolves, DRF-Schema-Adapter continues to prove its worth by simplifying the declaration of things like filters and custom actions. Moreover, it bridges the gap between backend and frontend development. By enabling the export of your Serializer definitions to formats compatible with your frontend library of choice.

Experience the power of automated, scalable API development with DRF-Schema-Adapter, and watch your productivity soar on projects of any size.
