Python Django REST Framework Make the REST Framework Work for You Customize a Viewset's Methods

I don't like that people can delete games through the API. How do I remove this functionality from a viewset?

Bummer! DELETE requests are still allowed.

scorekeeper/views.py
from rest_framework import generics
from rest_framework import mixins
from rest_framework import viewsets
from rest_framework.response import Response
from rest_framework.views import APIView

from . import models
from . import serializers


class GameListCreate(generics.ListCreateAPIView):
    queryset = models.Game.objects.all()
    serializer_class = serializers.GameSerializer


class GameScoresList(generics.ListAPIView):
    queryset = models.Score.objects.all()
    serializer_class = serializers.ScoreSerializer

    def get_queryset(self):
        return self.queryset.filter(
            game_id=self.kwargs.get('game_pk')
        )


class PlayerViewSet(viewsets.ModelViewSet):
    queryset = models.Player.objects.all()
    serializer_class = serializers.PlayerSerializer


class GameViewSet(viewsets.ModelViewSet):
    queryset = models.Game.objects.all()
    serializer_class = serializers.GameSerializer

Hie Humphrey Thanks for the assistance.

Next time wrap your code in three of these ` on either side, such that it comes out nicely formatted.

e.g

def name(Humphery):
      print (name)

U can get more info on the Markdown Cheetsheet below.

U can also click the ... button to edit code you have posted.

first step is

class ModelViewSet(mixins.CreateModelMixin, mixins.RetrieveModelMixin, mixins.UpdateModelMixin viewsets.GenericViewSet): pass

class GameViewSet(mixins.CreateModelMixin, mixins.RetrieveModelMixin, mixins.UpdateModelMixin viewsets.GenericViewSet): queryset = models.Game.objects.all() serializer_class = serializers.GameSerializer
