Hello! This project is the application documented in a tutorial series on my website: How To: Create a Flask API with JWT-Based Authentication
This can be used as boilerplate for any REST API project that is built on Flask, SQLAlchemy, Swagger UI and pytest. My goal is to provide a REST API that is secured via JSON Web Tokens (JWT) and is robust and secure enough for use in a real-world, production application. The most important packages/extensions used by the application are:
Throughout the tutorial series the importance of developing automated test coverage is emphasized, along with explanations for configuring several
pytest plugins that enforce code style/format, perform linting, calculate test coverage, etc.
Ensuring that your test cases are executed against your code as it would be installed by an end-user, and not against the code in your local development environment is explained and accomplished with
Deploying the application as part of a CICD system is demonstrated for Github Actions and Azure Pipelines.
The methodology and step-by-step process of implementing this application is documented as a tutorial series on my website. Please check it out if you would like to learn how it was built.
Feedback can be provided either by creating a new issue here or by commenting on the article series on my website.
