Updated January 2021
Sanic is a Python 3.6+ 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.
# What is it?
First things first, before you jump in the water, you should know that Sanic is different than other frameworks.
Right there in that first sentence there is a huge mistake because Sanic is both a framework and a web server. In the deployment section we will talk a little bit more about this.
But, remember, out of the box Sanic comes with everything you need to write, deploy, and scale a production grade web application. 🚀
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.
- Built in fast web server
- Production ready
- Highly scalable
- ASGI compliant
- Simple and intuitive API design
- By the community, for the community
