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.

Since we are past the point of talking about basic concepts in application development, we have graduated to the level of exploring some best practices that I have learned over the years of developing web applications. This is clearly just the tip of the iceberg, but they are some very important foundational practices that I encourage you to adopt. The examples from this chapter could become a great foundation for starting your next web application process.

First, we saw how you can use smart and repeatable exception handling to create a consistent and thoughtful experience for your users. Second, we explored the importance of creating a testable application, and some techniques to make it easily approachable. Third, we discussed implementing logging in both development and production environments, and how you could use those logs to easily debug and trace requests through your application. Finally, we spent time learning how databases could be integrated into your application...
