    Project mention: Microdot "The impossibly small web framework for Python and MicroPython" | | 2023-11-05
  • Tornado

    Tornado is a Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed.

    Project mention: Tornado web server/framework | /r/codehunter | 2023-04-22

  • Graphene

    GraphQL framework for Python

    Project mention: Who moved my error codes? Adding error types to your GoLang GraphQL Server | | 2023-06-25

    And gqlgen is not alone in this. We found several more GraphQL frameworks that don’t take it upon themselves to address this problem. Widely used GraphQL server implementations, such as graphql-go/graphql and Python’s graphene, have the exact same gap of exposing messages of unexpected errors by default.

    Pyramid ( is nice in that it has URL dispatch predicates, like @view_config(header="HX-Target-Name=foo") which lets you have HTMX-specific view functions, which return only what is needed

  • Masonite

    The Modern And Developer Centric Python Web Framework. Be sure to read the documentation and join the Discord channel for questions:

    Project mention: Portable Django | | 2023-02-23

    I would suggest Masonite [0]. It’s lightweight enough to replace Flask and has a plethora of built in features if you need to build a “production-ready” app. It tends to imitate Laravel in its project setup and naming conventions which, depending on your preference, can either be a boon or a bane.

  • bytewax

    Python Stream Processing

    Project mention: Stream processing framework for a new project in Python | /r/dataengineering | 2023-06-02

    Disclaimer: I work on Bytewax, but it feels like this could be a good fit and would save you some time looking around. If you need to do stateful operations (reduce, window, etc.) then you can use bytewax - with pub/sub, but you would need to build a custom connector. There are some guides on how to do that -
