Why might you consider using API Star for your next Web API project?

  • Schema generation - Support for automatically generating OpenAPI schemas.
  • Expressive - Type annotated views, that make for expressive, testable code.
  • Performance - Dynamic behaviour for determining how to run each view makes API Star incredibly efficient.
  • Throughput - Support for asyncio allows for building high-throughput non-blocking applications.


Install API Star:

$ pip3 install apistar

Create a new project in app.py:

from apistar import App, Route

def welcome(name=None):
    if name is None:
        return {'message': 'Welcome to API Star!'}
    return {'message': 'Welcome to API Star, %s!' % name}

routes = [
    Route('/', method='GET', handler=welcome),

app = App(routes=routes)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.serve('', 5000, debug=True)
