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.

Making a Dashboard

Most of the work done so far has focused on building microservices and making them interact with each other. It is time to bring humans into the equation, adding a User Interface (UI) through which our end users can use the system with a browser and change settings that may be awkward or unwise to do through Slack.

Modern web applications greatly rely on client-side JavaScript (JS, also known as ECMAScript). Some JS frameworks go all the way in terms of providing a full Model-View-Controller (MVC) system, which runs in the browser and manipulates the Document Object Model (DOM), the structured representation of the web page that is rendered in a browser.

The web development paradigm has shifted from rendering everything on the side of the server, to rendering everything on the client side with data collected from the server on demand. The reason is that modern web applications change portions of a loaded web page dynamically instead of calling the server...
