RPC4Django is an XMLRPC and JSONRPC server for Django powered projects. Simply plug it into any existing Django project and you can make your methods available via XMLRPC and JSONRPC. In addition, it can display nice documentation about the methods it makes available in a more customizable way than DocXMLRPCServer.
