A really lightweight and simple API server, built on the socketserver module

Project description


Meager is a tiny web framework built on the socketserver module in Python.

Codacy Badge Build Status Python Versions


Meager is available on PyPI.

You can install meager using pip: pip install meager


This is the simplest way of using meager, returning html upon a request to "/".

The module is heavily inspired by flask, and it's ease of use, and readability.

Example returning html

import meager
app = meager.Server(host="", port=8080) # Set binding ip address and port, default is localhost:2090

def index(request):
    return "<h1>Hello world!</h1>"

Example returning JSON

import meager
app = meager.Server()
example_dict = {"key1": "val1", "key2": "val2"}

def index(request):
    return example_dict # It can detect if you're sending a dictionary
                        # and automatically changes the "Content-Type:" header to application/json
