    For those of you that are fans of Pydantic: https://github.com/0b01001001/spectree (this is cross-platform with flask, falcon, and starlette :) It also doesn't re-implement anything the encode/starlette developers have already implemented, or have in the works for no specific reason. I'm not a huge fan of this design pattern, I'm more a lean/mean sort of fellow. openapi schema generation exists in starlette ... and you likely already are doing some sort of type validation once in your forms, json, orm, sql layer, or all four. An additional layer to validate "automatically" in your response (lol no), or in your request ... aren't all that useful imo.
