Yaat is an asynchronous web framework/toolkit.

  • API schema generator and Swagger UI.

Python 3.6+

You'll also want to install an ASGI server, such as uvicorn.

pip3 install uvicorn


Writing with Yaat is as simple as...

from yaat import Yaat
from yaat.responses import TextResponse

app = Yaat()

async def index(request):
    return TextResponse("Hello World")

Then run using uvicorn:

uvicorn app:app


I know there are a lot of awesome frameworks out there. So some might ask why did I write my own. Actually, I created this to learn how the web framework works.

I started this after following Jahongir Rahmonov's blog post about writing a web framework. Feel free to check out his WSGI framework Alcazar.

More features will be added in the future. You can check out the project board.
