    A lightweight Python web API framework.

  • flask-publisher

    Use type annotations to bring GET/POST values into Flask functions (similar to mod_python Publisher)

    I just recently built a super lightweight helper for Flask to port over some mod_apache Publisher API code:


    In my case all it does is use type annotations on the decorated function to bring query parameters / form fields into the decorated function parameters. No swagger docs or schemas, just parameter handling and conversion (based on types).

    I had previously used FastAPI for a full API I developed, liked that.

    APIFlask looks pretty slick, if I were to start an API I'd consider it. Documentation seems a lot more straightforward than FastAPI.
