I have not worked with Django seriously and my only experience is the tutorials on their site.
I am trying to write my own application now, and what I want is to have some sort of API. My idea is that I will later be able to use it with a client written in any other language.
I have the simplest of all apps, a model that has a name and surname field.
So the idea is that I can now write an app lets say in c++ that will send two strings to my Django app so they can be saved in the database as name, surname respectively.
What I know until now is to create a form so a user can enter that information, or have the information in the url, and of curse adding them myself from the admin menu.
What I want though is some other better way, maybe creating a packet that contains that data. Later my client sends this data to my Django webpage and it will extract the info and save it as needed. But I do not know how to do this.
If my suggested method is a good idea, then I would like an example of how this is done. If not the I would like suggestions for possible things I could try out.
