  Description     : Serve a RESTful API from any Postgres database

>From the webpage:

PostgREST is a standalone web server that turns your PostgreSQL database
directly into a RESTful API. The structural constraints and permissions
in the database determine the API endpoints and operations.

Using PostgREST is an alternative to manual CRUD programming. Custom API
servers suffer problems. Writing business logic often duplicates,
ignores or hobbles database structure. Object-relational mapping is a
leaky abstraction leading to slow imperative code. The PostgREST
philosophy establishes a single declarative source of truth: the data
itself.

I'll need a sponsor to upload the resulting packages to the
repositories.
