Python API Development Fundamentals

More Information
  • Explore how the RESTful API project structure works
  • Build applications with PyCharm and Postman
  • Use SQLAlchemy to access a database.
  • Implement the user login-logout function using the Auth API
  • Add features, such as data format verification and database connection with Python modules and libraries
  • Use the Marshmallow package to perform a series of serialization work on the collected data

Python is a flexible language that can do much more than just script development. By knowing how the Python RESTful APIs work, you can easily develop a full stack web application using Python.

You’ll take your first steps by building a simple API and learning how the frontend web interface can communicate with the backend. You’ll create online forms using the Marshmallow library. These forms will take in data from users and then serialize and persist the data in the database using Flask-SQLAlchemy. Then, you’ll learn how to authenticate and authorize users using Flask-JWT. Apart from all this, you’ll also learn how to enhance your application by adding useful features, such as email, image upload, searching, and pagination. You’ll complete your learning by seeing how to deploy the system so it is available to the users.

By the end of this book, you’ll have the confidence and skill to leverage the power of RESTful APIs and Python to build efficient web applications.

  • Delve deep into the principle behind RESTful API.
  • Learn how to build a scalable web application with the RESTful API architecture and Flask framework.
  • Know what are the exact tools and methodology to test your applications and how to use them
