Sanic | Build fast. Run fast.

Sanic is a Python 3.6+ web server and web framework that's written to go fast. It allows the usage of the async/await syntax added in Python 3.5, which makes your code non-blocking and speedy.

The project is maintained by the community, for the community Contributions are welcome!

The goal of the project is to provide a simple way to get up and running a highly performant HTTP server that is easy to build, to expand, and ultimately to scale.


pip3 install sanic

Sanic makes use of ``uvloop`` and ``ujson`` to help with performance. If you do not want to use those packages, simply add an environmental variable ``SANIC_NO_UVLOOP=true`` or ``SANIC_NO_UJSON=true`` at install time.

.. code:: shell

   $ export SANIC_NO_UVLOOP=true
   $ export SANIC_NO_UJSON=true 
   $ pip3 install --no-binary :all: sanic

Hello World Example

.. code:: python

from sanic import Sanic
from sanic.response import json

app = Sanic()

async def test(request):
    return json({'hello': 'world'})

if __name__ == '__main__':'', port=8000)

Sanic can now be easily run using python3

.. code::

[2018-12-30 11:37:41 +0200] [13564] [INFO] Goin' Fast @
[2018-12-30 11:37:41 +0200] [13564] [INFO] Starting worker [13564]

And, we can verify it is working: curl localhost:8000 -i

.. code::

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Connection: keep-alive
Keep-Alive: 5
Content-Length: 17
Content-Type: application/json


Now, let's go build something fast!
