  • GitHub repo uvicorn

    The lightning-fast ASGI server. 🦄

    Project mention: Does an ASGI(Asynchronous Server Gateway Interface) provide any benefit in Rust? | | 2021-06-26

    It also enables easily changing part of the server's stack. Typically in python you'll use one module to write your server (e.g. fastapi) then another to actually serve it (e.g. uvicorn). If you decide to change either of those out, you can, without effecting the other.

    Project mention: New Versions Released! Flask 2.0 with async | | 2021-05-12

    Flask getting async support is a huge step for the asyncio web ecosystem in Python. I wonder how Flask's ASGI support will evolve in parallel with Quart[1] which bills itself as the ASGI version of Flask and is maintained by a member of the Pallets team. One of the maintainers of Werkzeug even recommended using Quart[2]
