Python Microservices Development – 2nd edition - Second Edition

By: Simon Fraser, Tarek Ziadé

Overview of this book

The small scope and self-contained nature of microservices make them faster, cleaner, and more scalable than code-heavy monolithic applications. However, building microservices architecture that is efficient as well as lightweight into your applications can be challenging due to the complexity of all the interacting pieces. Python Microservices Development, Second Edition will teach you how to overcome these issues and craft applications that are built as small standard units using proven best practices and avoiding common pitfalls. Through hands-on examples, this book will help you to build efficient microservices using Quart, SQLAlchemy, and other modern Python tools In this updated edition, you will learn how to secure connections between services and how to script Nginx using Lua to build web application firewall features such as rate limiting. Python Microservices Development, Second Edition describes how to use containers and AWS to deploy your services. By the end of the book, you’ll have created a complete Python application based on microservices.

Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment

Tox can automate many testing steps for your project: running tests on various different Python versions; verifying coverage and code styles; building documentation, and so on. This is still something you would need to run by hand, and would also need to be maintained across several different versions of Python—a task made easier with tools such as pyenv (, although still involving some work to keep organized.

A Continuous Integration (CI) system solves this issue by listening for changes in your version control system for the right time to run the commands you decide on, and will often take care of the different environments for you. As an example, if you needed to make a change to an open-source project hosted on GitHub, you would be able to clone the repository. You would then have a complete copy of it on your own computer, including all of its history. You then make the change you need...
