Then run the following commands to bootstrap your environment with poetry:

git clone https://github.com/xiaozl/fastapi-realworld-example-app-mysql.git
cd fastapi-realworld-example-app-mysql
poetry install
poetry shell

Then create .env file (or rename and modify .env.example) in project root and set environment variables for application:

HOST=mysql host
PORT=mysql port 3306
USER=mysql user root
PWD=mysql pwd root
DB=mysql db fastapi

To run the web application in debug use init mysql db:

uvicorn app.main:app --reload

Deployment with Docker

You must have docker and docker-compose tools installed to work with material in this section. First, create .env file like in Quickstart section or modify .env.example. POSTGRES_HOST must be specified as db or modified in docker-compose.yml also. Then just run:

docker-compose up -d db
docker-compose up -d app

Application will be available on localhost in your browser.

Web routes

All routes are available on /docs or /redoc paths with Swagger or ReDoc.
