This section of the documentation is a simple collection of example code that can help you get a quick start on your application development. Most of these examples are categorized and provide you with a link to the working code example in the Sanic Repository
This section of the examples are a collection of code that provide a simple use case example of the sanic application.
A simple sanic application with a single
async method with
json type response.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/teapot.py
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/simple_server.py
Simple App with
Showcasing the simple mechanism of using :class:`sanic.viewes.HTTPMethodView` as well as a way to extend the same
into providing a custom
async behavior for
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/simple_async_view.py
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/redirect_example.py
Named URL redirection
Sanic provides an easy to use way of redirecting the requests via a helper method called
url_for that takes a
unique url name as argument and returns you the actual route assigned for it. This will help in simplifying the
efforts required in redirecting the user between different section of the application.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/url_for_example.py
Sanic provides an amazing feature to group your APIs and routes under a logical collection that can easily be
imported and plugged into any of your sanic application and it's called
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/blueprints.py
Sanic comes with a battery of Logging support it allows the end users to customize the way logging
is handled in the application runtime.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/override_logging.py
The following sample provides an example code that demonstrates the usage of :func:`sanic.app.Sanic.middleware` in order to provide a mechanism to assign a unique request ID for each of the incoming requests and log them via aiotask-context.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/log_request_id.py
Sanic Streaming Support
Sanic framework comes with in-built support for streaming large files and the following code explains the process
to setup a
Sanic application with streaming support.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/request_stream/server.py
Sample Client app to show the usage of streaming application by a client code.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/request_stream/client.py
Sanic Concurrency Support
Sanic supports the ability to start an app with multiple worker support. However, it's important to be able to limit
the concurrency per process/loop in order to ensure an efficient execution. The following section of the code provides a
brief example of how to limit the concurrency with the help of :class:`asyncio.Semaphore`
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/limit_concurrency.py
Sanic Deployment via Docker
sanic app via
docker-compose is an easy task to achieve and the following example
provides a deployment of the sample
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/Dockerfile
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/docker-compose.yml
Monitoring and Error Handling
Sanic provides an extendable bare minimum implementation of a global exception handler via
:class:`sanic.handlers.ErrorHandler`. This example shows how to extend it to enable some custom behaviors.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/exception_monitoring.py
Monitoring using external Service Providers
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/logdna_example.py
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/raygun_example.py
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/rollbar_example.py
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/sentry_example.py
The following sample code shows a simple decorator based authentication and authorization mechanism that can be setup
to secure your
sanic api endpoints.
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/authorized_sanic.py
Sanic provides an ability to easily add a route and map it to a
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/websocket.html
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/websocket.py
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/vhosts.py
Unit Testing With Parallel Test Run Support
The following example shows you how to get up and running with unit testing
sanic application with parallel test
execution support provided by the
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/pytest_xdist.py
Amending Request Object
request object in
Sanic is a kind of
dict object, this means that
reqeust object can be manipulated as a regular
.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/amending_request_object.py
