Minimalistic async HTTP server

Project description

# Minimalistic async HTTP server

This framework was inspired by [sanic]( framework.
This framework designed to be fast and be capable to start within 1.5 seconds at max (see [cold start problem](

## How to install

pip install async-http-minimal

## Example

import asyncio
import socket

from async_http import app
from async_http import router
from async_http import response

async def hello(request):
return response.text("hello-world!")

if __name__ == "__main__":
loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
sock.bind(("localhost", 9999))

rtr = router.Router()
rtr.add("/hello", frozenset({"GET"}), hello)
srv = app.AsyncHTTPServer(name="hello-world-server", router=rtr)
start_serving, run_forever =, loop=loop)

# here you can do some additional operations before starting an infinite serving
# can be helpful for unix sockets, etc.
