Building Web APIs with Flask

Note: Web API Development with Flask was created by Packt Publishing. It was originally released on 1/30/16. We are pleased to host this training in our library.

Regardless of platform, you will need to build APIs to serve data between different client applications and endpoints. Good APIs are a necessity for web and mobile projects, especially with the modern, mobile-first approach to development. This course delivers the fundamental knowledge required to enable highly connected interactions between applications via RESTful web APIs. Follow along with Gergo Bogdan and learn how to build up and structure an effective web API that can be used by any client application accessing it over HTTP, using Flask, the Python microframework.

Find out how to implement CRUD operations using SQLAlchemy and MySQL as the data store. Get an understanding of how REST works relative to APIs, and learn how to test APIs written in Python with the support of Flask. Explore token-based authentication and find out how to store passwords securely in your database. Along the way, Gergo introduces best practices and design guidelines when building large applications. Topics include:
  • Setting up Flask
  • Using Flask templates and routing
  • Implementing CRUD operations
  • Implementing pagination
  • Configuring RESTful authentication
  • HTTP caching
  • Securing web APIs
  • Testing the application
