  • fastapi

    Project mention: Strict Python Function Parameters | | 2022-01-23

    Slightly off-topic, but everyone writing modern Python should be familiar with Pydantic and similar libraries that use type hints for validation and parsing:

    We're using Pydantic for Robusta ( and absolutely love it. You get the best of traditional Python (rapid prototyping and no boilerplate) while still being able to scale your codebase and keep it maintainable. Robusta is the first large project I've written in Python where I'm not encountering type errors at runtime left and right.

    Project mention: Registration and Authentication in Django apps with dj-rest-auth | | 2021-03-15

    If you are a Django developer and you are coding a REST API with authentication, you will find the dj-rest-auth package very useful. This project is a fork from django-rest-auth that is no longer maintained. As said, dj-rest-auth provides a set of REST API endpoints to manage user registration and authentication. After an easy installation and configuration, you will have endpoints for:

  • Crossbar - WAMP application router

    Project mention: Jupyter data analytics on real-time trading data from crypto exchanges | | 2022-01-12

    This works by a WebSocket client written in AutobahnPython, which stores data in zLMDB and published data in WAMP via zLMDP is memory mapped from within Jupyter, which allows direct high performance access (millions of rows/sec on PyPy!).

    Project mention: When is it appropriate to use DRF viewsets.Viewset? | | 2022-01-18

  • fastapi-crudrouter

    A dynamic FastAPI router that automatically creates CRUD routes for your models

    Project mention: FUNCTOOLS CHANGED MY LIFE | | 2021-10-18

    I can't show any pics cuz of uk NDA and all that. I can tell you the gist of it though. FastAPI is already pretty good at the abstraction part. Our middleware had a lot of rerouting and it was basically just a bunch of redundant functions. I just used this cool ass package and used the partial function from functools to generate endpoints for every scenario/db tables.

  • hikari

    Project mention: For users, what library are you going switch? | | 2022-01-26

    For me, I' m now using hikari because I feel like its a hidden gem cuz of its nice workflow around its command frameworks (lightbulb and tanjun).I haven't tried tanjun but I find both hikari and lightbulb to have a really nice documentation.
