Async Microservices Framework

Project description


Waspy is the python framework for the WASP project. In other words its an asynchronous "transport-agnostic" web framework.

Language agnostic concepts

While this framework is for python, the patterns used in wasp are language agnostic. You should be able to call other services in different languages assuming they all follow the same patterns. This framework has a pluggable architecture for the transport layer, which allows you to switch from http to using a message bus, or vice-versa. You could even listen on both at the same time without having to modify your code at all.

This project is currently in alpha state. There are a lot of features missing.

Features for beta:

  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> HTTP Transport
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> Routing
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> RabbitMQ transporty
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> Support middlewares
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> Client library (for calling other services)
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> HTTP client transport (with envvar service discovery)
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> RabbitMQ client transport
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Test everything

note: all alpha features are complete, but I am still in the process of adding more robusts tests. Until that is done, waspy will remain in alpha and api's might change.

Wish List:

  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Transport classes for nats (
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Transport classes for kafka
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> Transport classes for gRPC
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> pattern for synchronous "worker-tier"
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> configuration package
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> auto-reloading when in debug mode
  • <input type="checkbox" checked="" disabled="" /> sentry integration
  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> jwt handling

Features for GA (1.0):

  • <input type="checkbox" disabled="" /> High level "Falcon-like" api for writing RESTFUL endpoints even easier!
