I feel that the libraries around web dev and the ecosystem is much stronger for js than python.

Except ORM. Why is that?

I can't confirm nor deny this as I haven't used Python in such a while that I'm unsure how their ecosystem compares to node at this point.

I don't think its quite fair to compare modern day node.js to an old WSGI based web framework like Flask.

Modern Python web frameworks are ASGI based.
My personal favorite is FastAPI but there are many more

Hi! I would love to get into python web. :)

Could you share your experience using FastAPI? And why you like it?

Is it correct that FastAPI is based on Starlette, which is based on Uvicorn? So why not use Uvicorn for small projects and FastAPI for something bigger?

How mature is FastAPI in your opinion? Comparing to Django for example. Reliable in production?
