Sanic is a Python 3.7+ web server and web framework that’s written to go fast. It allows the usage of the async/await syntax added in Python 3.5, which makes your code non-blocking and speedy.

Sanic is also ASGI compliant, so you can deploy it with an alternative ASGI webserver.

The project is maintained by the community, for the community. Contributions are welcome!

The goal of the project is to provide a simple way to get up and running a highly performant HTTP server that is easy to build, to expand, and ultimately to scale.

Installation¶

pip3 install sanic

Sanic makes use of uvloop and ujson to help with performance. If you do not want to use those packages, simply add an environmental variable SANIC_NO_UVLOOP=true or SANIC_NO_UJSON=true at install time.

$ export SANIC_NO_UVLOOP=true
$ export SANIC_NO_UJSON=true
$ pip3 install --no-binary :all: sanic

Note

If you are running on a clean install of Fedora 28 or above, please make sure you have the redhat-rpm-config package installed in case if you want to use sanic with ujson dependency.

Hello World Example¶

from sanic import Sanic
from sanic.response import json

app = Sanic("my-hello-world-app")

@app.route('/')
async def test(request):
    return json({'hello': 'world'})

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run()

Sanic can now be easily run using sanic hello.app.
