    Project mention: 3 cool project ideas for Python programmers | | 2022-08-29

    For building your API, I recommend using the Flask library. It is very beginner-friendly, and you will be able to build a simple API in a matter of minutes! Keep in mind that, for a more serious project, you should definitely use something like gunicorn to run you API as a production server.

    2. Hypercorn,, an ASGI/WSGI server that supports HTTP/1, HTTP/2, and HTTP/3.

    3. My book "A Blueprint for Production-Ready Web Applications", which uses both of the above and shows a beginner how to build a full stack app (React frontend) running on AWS. See for details, code, and link to the example app.

    Waitress - A WSGI server for Python 3

    Project mention: How to exit cleanly from flask and waitress running as a windows pywin32 service | | 2022-03-27

    I have spent hours reviewing and testing ways of making waitress exit cleanly (like this and this) but the best I can do so far is a kind of suicidal SIGINT which makes Windows complain "the pipe has been ended" when stopping through the Services control panel, but at least it stops :-/ I guess the pythonservice.exe which pywin32 starts, should not terminate, just the waitress treads?
