    What we get with the async part of this release - If you would like to run an async library or your own async code from a flask route you can do that now. This is super useful, where let's say we have some async code that fetches data from many sources concurrently, or call multiple a few ML prediction endpoints at the same time (as long as they don't time out) using httpx and respond with some sort of outcome, or finally try that cool new async-only database library. A current (v2) limitation is that the you can't make concurrent requests using just the current asyncio implementation (an alternative with Flask API and ASGI: Quart). Typically in production gunicorn or uwsgi + threads/processes/gevent-eventlet is used and this makes Flask behave asynchronously. More here and here if interested.
  • Migrating to SQLAlchemy 2.0

    Agreed. I will never recommend an ORM, things simply spiraled out of control for medium to large-ish projects that had more than 2 developers. Even with "best practices", code ended up having a mix of raw SQL and ORM-style queries, and it was hard to reason about the code.

    Since switching to asyncpg [0] these problems have vanished. It commands a deeper knowledge of actual SQL, but I would argue this knowledge is absolutely necessary and one of the disadvantages of an ORM is that it makes the SQL that is eventually run opaque.

    Not sure if there are equivalents to asyncpg for other RDBMS's.


  • Piccolo, an async query builder and ORM for Python
    4 projects | | 10 Jan 2021
    Asyncio makes a lot of sense when you want high throughput applications. Piccolo is built on top of asyncio and a fast database adapter called asyncpg. You can also use Piccolo within a traditional synchronous app too.
