    When it comes to Flask, in particular, there’re plenty of choices. And in fairness, not all frameworks are created equal. You’ve got flasgger, restx (successor of flask-restplus), flask-RESTful, and flask-smorest, to mention a few. How do you choose among those???

    Common frameworks for building APIs in Python are the Django Rest Framework and Flask-RESTPLUS. Django developers can add the django-rest-swagger module via pip, whereas Flask-RESTPLUS has Swagger support built in. Both are very powerful in terms of automation, so they do not require a lot of configuration.
