Cherrypy Object not callable - MethodDispatcher

i need a little REST API and picked Cherrypy. I'm writing Cherrypy RESTApi since about 2 years. Now, using the same start as usual i am running into an error, it is driving me crazy.
I'm on a Ubuntu 16.04 with Python 3.5.2 and Cherrypy 8.1.2. The Code:

import cherrypy

class Sotd:
exposed = True

def GET(self):
return {"message": "blub"}

class RestAPI:
exposed = True

if __name__ == '__main__':

api = RestAPI()
api.sotd = Sotd()

'request.dispatcher': cherrypy.dispatch.MethodDispatcher()

cherrypy.server.socket_host = ''
cherrypy.server.socket_port = 8080

Now im trying to make the GET Call and expect my JSON back.

curl http://localhost:8080/api/sotd

And things blow up

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/inspect.py", line 1089, in getfullargspec
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/inspect.py", line 2156, in _signature_from_callable
raise TypeError('{!r} is not a callable object'.format(obj))
TypeError: <__main__.Sotd object at 0x7efc1271b4a8> is not a callable object

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):

test_callable_spec(self.callable, self.args, self.kwargs)

return inspect.getfullargspec(callable)[:4]
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/inspect.py", line 1095, in getfullargspec
raise TypeError('unsupported callable') from ex
TypeError: unsupported callable

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

return self.callable(*self.args, **self.kwargs)
TypeError: 'Sotd' object is not callable

I saw this 1-2 Post about cherrypy and Not Callable Object - but the solutions (simple config fails) didnt work out for me :(

Thanks for your help!


Well, it was a config fail... It's not 'request.dispatcher' it is 'request.dispatch'
