How to get a field of a foreign key Model appear in a Django-Serializer?


I am building a Django application that exposes a REST API by which users can query 2 of my application's models. I'm following the instructions <a href="http://www.django-rest-framework.org/tutorial/quickstart#quickstart" rel="nofollow"><strong>here</strong></a>.

My two models are:

<ol><li>The Django User model from django.contrib.auth</li> <li>

The model shown below.

class Profile(models.Model): user = models.OneToOneField(User) </li> </ol>

My Serialiazers are as follows:

class UserSerializer(serializers.HyperlinkedModelSerializer): class Meta: model = User fields = ('url', 'username', 'email', ) class ProfileSerializer(serializers.HyperlinkedModelSerializer): class Meta: model = Profile fields = ('id', 'slug', 'user',)

I can see that this is working when I hit the APIs from the command-line:

% curl -H 'Accept: application/json; indent=4' -u root:MyPassword { "id": 60, "slug": "myprofile", "user": "" } % curl -H 'Accept: application/json; indent=4' -uroot:MyPassword { "url": "", "username": "myUser", "email": "myemail@gmail.com" }

What I would like to know are two things:

<ol><li>How do I change my Profile's serializer such that the user's username appears in the serialized profile?</li> <li>How can I expose this API publicly so it works even without the root/password login?</li> </ol>
