Awesome FastAPI |

A curated list of awesome things related to FastAPI.

FastAPI is a modern, high-performance, batteries-included Python web framework that's perfect for building RESTful APIs.


Third-Party Extensions


  • FastAPI Admin - Functional admin panel that provides a user interface for performing CRUD operations on your data. Currently only works with the Tortoise ORM.
  • Piccolo Admin - A powerful and modern admin GUI, using the Piccolo ORM.
  • SQLAlchemy Admin - Admin Panel for FastAPI/Starlette that works with SQLAlchemy models.




  • FastAPI SQLAlchemy - Simple integration between FastAPI and SQLAlchemy.
  • FastAPIwee - A simple way to create REST API based on PeeWee models.
  • GINO - A lightweight asynchronous ORM built on top of SQLAlchemy core for Python asyncio.
  • ORM - An async ORM.
  • ormar - Ormar is an async ORM that uses Pydantic validation and can be used directly in FastAPI requests and responses so you are left with only one set of models to maintain. Alembic migrations included.
  • Piccolo - An async ORM and query builder, supporting Postgres and SQLite, with batteries (migrations, security, etc).
  • Prisma Client Python - An auto-generated, fully type safe ORM powered by Pydantic and tailored specifically for your schema - supports SQLite, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, MariaDB and more.
  • Tortoise ORM - An easy-to-use asyncio ORM (Object Relational Mapper) inspired by Django.
  • SQLModel - SQLModel (which is powered by Pydantic and SQLAlchemy) is a library for interacting with SQL databases from Python code, with Python objects.

Query Builders


  • Beanie - Asynchronous Python ODM for MongoDB, based on Motor and Pydantic, which supports data and schema migrations out of the box.
  • MongoEngine - A Document-Object Mapper (think ORM, but for document databases) for working with MongoDB from Python.
  • Motor - Asynchronous Python driver for MongoDB.
  • ODMantic - AsyncIO MongoDB ODM integrated with Pydantic.

Other Tools

Developer Tools


  • FastAPI Mail - Lightweight mail system for sending emails and attachments (individual and bulk).
