Feature request: REST API handlers

See original GitHub issue

I would like to use an existing JustPy app to also provide a few REST API functions. My current attempt goes like this:

import justpy as jp
import starlette.responses

def status_json(request):
    return starlette.responses.JSONResponse({'status':'okay'})


which understandably results in AssertionError: Function did not return a web page.

Could you please help me hook into scarlette inside JustPy so that the request can return JSON, for some endpoints?

Thanks @elimintz, that is what I found out as well 😃 The API interface is not complex in this case so I’d like to keep it neatly together with pages served by JustPy.

#182 would allow returning JSONResponse.
