A web framework based on ASGI

Project description


A web framework based on ASGI. This is inspired by the Express framework for node.js.

Current status

This API is extremely experimental, and is subject to change at any time.

I do not recommend using it for production purposes, but I would love to get feedback.


Written with Python 3.7, no guarantee it will work on earlier versions (although I think 3.6 would work fine).


Via pip

Run the following:

$ pip install nardis

From source

To build from source, clone this repo, and then:

$ python install


Here's a quick example you can use. Create an and copy and paste this:

from nardis.asgi import main
from nardis.routing import Get, Post
import asyncio

template_start = """
<!doctype html>
  <h1>He's down!</h1>

template_end = """

async def index(req, res):
    await res.send(template_start, more=True)
    for x in range(10, 0, -1):
        await res.send(f"<p>{x}!</p>", more=True)
        await asyncio.sleep(1)
    await res.send("<p>It's over. TKO!</p>", more=True)
    await res.send(template_end)

routes = [
    Get(r"^/?$", index),

app = main(routes)  # this is the ASGI application

if __name__ == '__main__':
    from import run
    run(app, '', 8000)

And then:

$ python

This should start a server on

Using other web servers

Uvicorn is currently a dependency of Nargis for local development.

Nargis should also work with other ASGI-based web servers, like Daphne.

To get Daphne working with the example code above, you could do the following:

$ daphne application:app
