Framework for building Web APIs using asyncio

Project description

facture: async http api framework ===

[![image](]( [![image](]( [![image](]( [![image](]( [![image](](

Facture provides developers with a sensible base structure and set of tools for building performant, lightweight and scalable HTTP API packages that can be easily deployed, combined - or shared with others.

Check out a demo of the Facture REST API browser over at [](

It’s built on top of [aiohttp](, is compatible with its plugin system, and uses the blazing fast [uvloop]( implementation of the asyncio event loop.

Features and limitations: - Delivers performance and concurrency - Scales horizontally - Comes with a REST API browser - Supports CORS and JWT out of the box - Has built-in support for [Postgres]( databases - Provides intuitive tools for object serialization - Created with [Docker]( and [Kubernetes]( in mind - Works only with modern versions of Python (3.6+) - Event loop driven; code must be [asynchronous](

Getting started —

Read the documentation at [](, or check out the [jet-guestbook]( example.

Development — While Facture does work, it’s currently under heavy development; Expect some breakage, as well as lacking documentation and tests. That being said - I would very much appreciate people testing out the software, and perhaps even contribute with code.

#### Tasks If you’re interested in helping out in any way, let me know by creating an Issue or contact me by email. Below are various tasks that needs completion in a first stable release.
