So i've installed trunk version

If i submit a post with curl with empty fields i get:



goshawk@earth:~$ curl -X POST http://localhost:8000/api/Persona.json -d "nome=testjson1&cognome=testjson&secondo_cognome=&indirizzo=&numero_civico=&citta=&provincia=&cap=&telefono=&cellulare=&email=&perdita_media=&note=&preventivo="

    goshawk@earth:~$ curl -X  POST http://localhost:8000/api/Persona.json -d "nome=testjson2&cognome=testjson"

    Just change in piston/handlers.py this part of the code

    line 55

    def flatten_dict(self, dct):
            return dict([ (str(k), dct.get(k)) for k in dct.keys() ])


    def flatten_dict(self, dct):
            return dict([(str(k), dct.get(k)) for k in dct.keys() if dct.get(k) != ''])
