I built a simple FastAPI app that will respond with random Yo' Mama! jokes.
Random Roulette: Everybody's building a COVID19 app. COVID19 got
nothing on a good Yo' Mama joke! Also, I can't program for crap so there's that as well. One day I'll build a COVID19 FastAPI app. That day ain't today.
Building this app to show how to deploy a FastAPI app
to DigitalOcean's App Platform. DigitalOcean has examples of the major Python web frameworks, but not FastAPI. This post will fix that since I believe that DigitalOcean's App Platform is ideal for deploying FastAPI fast.
Using FastAPI web framework
- FastAPI: The Official Documentation
- Calmcode.io FastAPI course: Fastest quickstart in the world for FastAPI. Yes, even faster than FastAPI's official docs. Narrated, written, and coded by @fishnets88.
- TestDriven.io FastAPI course: If you're an actual professional Developer/Programmer, I'm not. This course supports financially FastAPI library and will show you how to use FastAPI for its ultimate purpose. Serving ML models. I just use it for Yo Mama jokes and Bob's Burgers hamburger recipes. There's got to be somebody out there who needs that for their ML stuff... Right???
