Welcome to the Asgineer documentation!

Asgineer is a tool to write asynchronous web applications, using as few abstractions as possible, while still offering a friendly API. There is no fancy routing; you write an async request handler, and delegate to other handlers as needed.

More precisely, Asgineer is a (thin) Python ASGI web microframework.

Cool stuff:

  • Since Asgineer does not depend on asyncio, it can be used with alternative async libs like Trio.
  • When running on Uvicorn, Asgineer is one of the fastest web frameworks available.
  • You can write your web app with Asgineer, and switch the underlying (ASGI) server without having to change your code.
  • Asgineer is so small that it fits in the palm of your hand!
