Building Python Web APIs with FastAPI (Packt)
Wednesday, 10 August 2022

This book shows how FastAPI, a high-performance web framework for building RESTful APIs in Python, can be used to build robust web APIs that are simple and intuitive and makes it easy to build quickly with very little boilerplate code. Abdulazeez Abdulazeez Adeshina starts from how to set up a FastAPI application and how to use FastAPI to build a REST API that receives and responds to user requests. He then goes on to show how to handle routing and authentication while working with databases in a FastAPI application.


You'll go on to learn how to handle routing and authentication while working with databases in a FastAPI application. The book walks you through the four key areas: building and using routes for create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations; connecting the application to SQL and NoSQL databases; securing the application built; and deploying your application locally or to a cloud environment.
