FastAPI framework, high performance, easy to learn, fast to code, ready for production

Test Coverage Package version Supported Python versions

Documentation: https://fastapi.tiangolo.com

Source Code: https://github.com/tiangolo/fastapi

FastAPI is a modern, fast (high-performance), web framework for building APIs with Python based on standard Python type hints.

The key features are:

* estimation based on tests on an internal development team, building production applications.

"If anyone is looking to build a production Python API, I would highly recommend FastAPI. It is beautifully designed, simple to use and highly scalable, it has become a key component in our API first development strategy and is driving many automations and services such as our Virtual TAC Engineer."

Typer, the FastAPI of CLIs

If you are building a CLI app to be used in the terminal instead of a web API, check out Typer.

Typer is FastAPI's little sibling. And it's intended to be the FastAPI of CLIs. ⌨️ 🚀


FastAPI stands on the shoulders of giants:


$ pip install fastapi

---> 100%


Create it

from typing import Union

from fastapi import FastAPI

app = FastAPI()

def read_root():
    return {"Hello": "World"}

def read_item(item_id: int, q: Union[str, None] = None):
    return {"item_id": item_id, "q": q}
Or use async def...

If your code uses async / await, use async def:

from typing import Union

from fastapi import FastAPI

app = FastAPI()

async def read_root():
    return {"Hello": "World"}

async def read_item(item_id: int, q: Union[str, None] = None):
    return {"item_id": item_id, "q": q}


If you don't know, check the "In a hurry?" section about async and await in the docs.

Run it

Run the server with:

$ fastapi dev main.py

About the command fastapi dev main.py...

The command fastapi dev reads your main.py file, detects the FastAPI app in it, and starts a server using Uvicorn.

By default, fastapi dev will start with auto-reload enabled for local development.

You can read more about it in the FastAPI CLI docs.

Example upgrade

Now modify the file main.py to receive a body from a PUT request.

Declare the body using standard Python types, thanks to Pydantic.

from typing import Union

from fastapi import FastAPI
from pydantic import BaseModel

app = FastAPI()

class Item(BaseModel):
    name: str
    price: float
    is_offer: Union[bool, None] = None

def read_root():
    return {"Hello": "World"}

def read_item(item_id: int, q: Union[str, None] = None):
    return {"item_id": item_id, "q": q}

def update_item(item_id: int, item: Item):
    return {"item_name": item.name, "item_id": item_id}

The fastapi dev server should reload automatically.

In summary, you declare once the types of parameters, body, etc. as function parameters.

You do that with standard modern Python types.

You don't have to learn a new syntax, the methods or classes of a specific library, etc.

Just standard Python.

For example, for an int:

item_id: int

or for a more complex Item model:

item: Item

...and with that single declaration you get:

Coming back to the previous code example, FastAPI will:

We just scratched the surface, but you already get the idea of how it all works.

Try changing the line with:

    return {"item_name": item.name, "item_id": item_id}


        ... "item_name": item.name ...


        ... "item_price": item.price ...

...and see how your editor will auto-complete the attributes and know their types:

Independent TechEmpower benchmarks show FastAPI applications running under Uvicorn as one of the fastest Python frameworks available, only below Starlette and Uvicorn themselves (used internally by FastAPI). (*)

When you install fastapi it comes these standard dependencies.


If you don't want the extra standard optional dependencies, install fastapi-slim instead.

When you install with:

pip install fastapi

...it includes the same code and dependencies as:

pip install "fastapi-slim[standard]"

The standard extra dependencies are the ones mentioned above.
