Project description

starlette-views – A helper to make views faster with Starlette

Starlette-Views automatically converts views results into starlette.responses.Response objects.

Tests Status PYPI Version


  • python >= 3.7


starlette-views should be installed using pip:

pip install starlette-views


Just wrap your Starlette application into the views:

from starlette_views import Views

app = Starlette(...)
app = Views(app)

or you are able to import Starlette from the module (in this case you have nothing to setup more):

from starlette_views import Starlette

app = Starlette(...)

Quick Start

from starlette.applications import Starlette
from starlette.routing import Route

async def hello(request):
    return 'Hello from Views!'

 # Create Starlette Application
app = Starlette(routes=[
     Route('/', hello)

# Enable the quick views
app = Views(app)

Then run the application…

$ uvicorn example:app

Open and you will find the hello from the views.


async def render_json1(request):
    """Just return dictionary to make a JSON response."""
    return {'any': 'value'}

async def render_json2(request):
    """List also works well."""
    return [{'any': 'value'}]

async def render_json3(request):
    """Return a tuple to set HTTP status."""
    return 403, {'message': 'Authorization required'}

async def render_html1(request):
    """Return any string to make an HTML response."""
    return "<h1>I would be rendered as HTML</h1>"

async def render_html2(request):
    """Return a tuple to set HTTP status."""
    return 201, 'Record Created'

# Starlette Responses works as well too
from starlette.responses import HTMLResponse

async def render_normal(request):
    """Starlette Responses are returned as is."""
    return HTMLResponse('Common behaviour', status_code=200)
