A powerful tool to enable super fast module-to-API transformations. Learn in minutes, implement in seconds. Batteries included.

symmetric is a lean wrapper over Flask, with much less hassle and some very neat features.

Why Symmetric?

Raw developing speed and ease of use, that’s why. While Flask is a powerful tool to have, getting it to work from scratch can be a bit of a pain, especially if you have never used it before. Do you have a machine learning model that you would like to use as a web service but don’t want to spend hours learning how to build APIs? You can stop searching! The idea behind symmetric is to be able to take any module already written and transform it into a working API in a matter of seconds, instead of having to design the module ground-up to work with Flask (it can also be used to build an API from scratch really fast).

Cool Features

symmetric includes some cool features to massivley add value to your API with no need for you to think about it! With symmetric you get:

  • Automatic server logging.
  • Server-side error detection and exception handling.
  • Auto-generated /docs endpoint for your API with interactive documentation.
  • Native support for an authentication token on a per-endpoint basis.
  • Auto-generated OpenAPI Specification and Markdown documentation files for your API.

Just two lines of code!

Import the symmetric object, wrap your function with a decorator and you are all set. No need for additional configuration, no need to document your API… Yes, that’s right! Never again worry about documenting your API’s endpoints, symmetric does that for you! In fact, here’s am example of the auto-generated interactive documentation:
