Python Web Development with Sanic

By: Adam Hopkins

Overview of this book

Today’s developers need something more powerful and customizable when it comes to web app development. They require effective tools to build something unique to meet their specific needs, and not simply glue a bunch of things together built by others. This is where Sanic comes into the picture. Built to be unopinionated and scalable, Sanic is a next-generation Python framework and server tuned for high performance. This Sanic guide starts by helping you understand Sanic’s purpose, significance, and use cases. You’ll learn how to spot different issues when building web applications, and how to choose, create, and adapt the right solution to meet your requirements. As you progress, you’ll understand how to use listeners, middleware, and background tasks to customize your application. The book will also take you through real-world examples, so you will walk away with practical knowledge and not just code snippets. By the end of this web development book, you’ll have gained the knowledge you need to design, build, and deploy high-performance, scalable, and maintainable web applications with the Sanic framework.

Chapter 9: Best Practices to Improve Your Web Applications

From Chapter 1, Introduction to Sanic and Async Frameworks, through Chapter 8, Running a Sanic Server, we learned how to build a web application from conception through deployment. Pat yourself on the back and give yourself a round of applause. Building and deploying a web application is not a simple feat. So, what have we learned? We, of course, spent time learning about all of the fundamental tools that Sanic provides: route handlers, blueprints, middleware, signals, listeners, decorators, exception handlers, and so on. More importantly, however, we spent some time thinking about how HTTP works and how we can use these tools to design and build applications that are secure, scalable, maintainable, and easily deployable.

There have been a lot of specific patterns in this book for you to use, but also, quite intentionally, I have left a lot of ambiguity. You have continually read statements such as it depends upon your application...
