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.

Or is it? It is tempting to start building an application as soon as the ideas about what we want to build begin to formulate in our heads. Before doing that, we should think about setting ourselves up for success. Having a solid foundation for the building will make the process much easier, reduce bugs, and result in a cleaner application.

The three foundations for beginning any Python web application project are as follows:

  • Your IDE/coding editor
  • An environment for running your development application
  • A project application structure

These three elements take into account a lot of personal tastes. There are so many good tools and approaches. There is no way a single book could cover them all. If...
