Sanic is a Flask-like Python 3.5+ web server that’s written to go fast. It’s based on the work done by the amazing folks at magicstack, and was inspired by this article.

On top of being Flask-like, Sanic supports async request handlers. This means you can use the new shiny async/await syntax from Python 3.5, making your code non-blocking and speedy.

Sanic is developed on GitHub. Contributions are welcome!

Sanic aspires to be simple

from sanic import Sanic
from sanic.response import json

app = Sanic()

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

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