FastAPI is a Web framework for developing RESTful APIs in Python. FastAPI is based on Pydantic and type hints to validate, serialize, and deserialize data, and automatically auto-generate OpenAPI documents.[3]

It fully supports asynchronous programming and can run with Uvicorn and Gunicorn.[4] In the initial design, it was considered the editor support to improve the developer-friendly[clarification needed].[5]

Adoption and real-world usage[edit]

FastAPI was the third most loved web framework in StackOverflow 2021 Developer Survey.[6]

T. Darka stressed its value for data science applications.[7]

It is used by large companies like Uber and Netflix to develop some of their applications.[8][9]
