Top 10 Python Web Frameworks: 2020 Edition
@Gautam Gautam Raturi Technical Content Writer at Quytech.com | Passionate for Writing about Advance & Latest Technology Python is undoubtedly the most popular high-level programming language that is ideal for scripting and web application development. It features an easy-to-learn syntax that allows the programmers to express concepts with less coding. Apart from this, this general-purpose programming language has a dynamic type system, memory management, a wide standard library, and many other features. While developing a web or mobile application using Python, its frameworks play a major role. For those who are naive to this field, let’s explain what a framework is. A web framework supports the development of an application, incorporating resources, APIs, and web services. Also known as a web application framework, a WF automates overhead linked to different tasks involved in the web development, which further allow developers to pay attention to the app logic instead of routine jobs. In general, there are three types of Python web frameworks: full stack (offers complete support), micro (comes with limited features and functionalities), and asynchronous (relies on Python’s asyncio library). List of top 10 Python web frameworks Django (Full-stack framework) Flask (Micro framework) Tornado (Asynchronous framework) Web2py (Micro framework) Bottle (Micro framework) CherryPy (Micro framework) Falcon (Micro framework) Pyramid (Full-stack framework) Hug (Micro framework) TurboGears (Full-stack framework) Let’s read them in detail: 1. Django This free open-source Python’s framework is scalable, flexible, fast, and versatile. It comes up with several built-in features that help it to develop small and complex web applications. To map objects with the databases, this framework uses object-relational mapper. In short, it is one of the prime frameworks for backend development. Django uses PostgreSQL, Oracle, and SQLite databases. Features: URL routing Template engine Data schema migrations Authentication ORM or object-relational mapper 2. Flask Available under the BSD license, Flask has a built-in debugger and development server. The light-weight module and modular design of the framework makes it a perfect choice for the developers who are looking out a solid web application foundation. It is the second most used framework after Django. Features : Jinja2 templating Fast debugger WSGI 1.0 compliance Include plugins to support any ORM Unit testing support HTTP request handling Unicode-based RESTful request dispatching 3. Tornado Tornado focuses on speeding up the development process and also has the potential to deal with huge traffic. By using a non-blocking network I/O, it can fix the C10k problem. If you configure this open-source web framework properly, it is capable of handling can more than 10,000 concurrent connections. In short, Tornado is created to be scalable and deal with asynchronous processes. Features: Support for user authentication In-built HTTP server Web templating language powered by Python Excellent performance Real-time services Support for Interpretation and Localization 4. Web2py Web2Py is a full-stack open-source framework that has a personal Integrated Development Environment. This IDE further comprises a code editor, a specialized tool for one-click deployment, » Read More
