Returning JSON data from a Package Endpoint

Package endpoints can serve JSON data by returning a python dict object from a method.

API callers will receive a JSON response over HTTP with the appropriate Content-Type header, and Steamship’s auto-generated Web UI will convert the JSON response to a formatted web view.

from steamship.invocable import PackageService, get
class JsonReturningSteamshipPackage(PackageService):
    """This package demonstrates how to return a JSON object from a Steamship package."""
    def json_object(self) -> dict:
        return {
            "greeting": "Hello, world!"
