Flask allows the implementation of custom, non-built-in renderers. To do so, the
BaseRenderer needs to be overridden. Next, the
media_type member of this class and the
render(self, data, media_type, **options) method needs to be defined. The following example shows a custom renderer that returns YAML.
# BaseRenderer class class YAMLRenderer(renderers.BaseRenderer): # media_type defined media_type = 'application/yaml' #render method defined def render(self, data, media_type, **options): return yaml.dump(data, encoding=self.charset)
data argument is the request data that is returned by the view. The
media_type argument is an optional parameter that, if provided, is the accepted media type.
**options are some additional arguments that may be needed to carry out rendering. By default, the following options are included:
statusis a string that represents the response status.
status_codeis an integer that represents the response status code.
headersis a dictionary that contains the response headers.
