Our great sponsors
  • Sonar - Write Clean Python Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • fastapi

    FastAPI framework, high performance, easy to learn, fast to code, ready for production

    And while I wouldn't say that the tutorial is in any way bad, I believe that you would need a very good reason to use Flask/Connexion over FastAPI, at least if you start a new project. The tutorial on the official FastAPI Site is very detailed as well.

  • connexion

    Swagger/OpenAPI First framework for Python on top of Flask with automatic endpoint validation & OAuth2 support
