First of all thanks to the Django core team and to all the contributors of for their amazing work. Also I would like to thank Marc Gibbons for his django-rest-framework-docs project. Both projects share the same idea, it is just that Marc’s is not maintained anymore and does not support DRF 3+ & Python 3.
