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.

Technical requirements

Since this chapter builds upon the previous chapters, you should have all of the technical needs already fulfilled. We will start using some additional third-party packages, so make sure you have pip handy.

If you would like to jump ahead to make sure your environment is set up, here are the pip packages that we plan to use:

$ pip install aioredis ariadne "databases[postgresql]" nextcord

Furthermore, if you recall, back in Chapter 2, Organizing a Project, we discussed using factory patterns. Because we are now starting to build what could become the base of a real-world application, I feel it is much better to use a factory pattern here that can be expanded. Therefore, for the remainder of this book, you will see more and more usage of the factory pattern that we already have established and used.
