Wsgitypes: MyPy Types For WSGI Applications

WSGI Types for Python

This is an attempt to bring some type safety to WSGI applications using Python's new typing features (TypedDicts, Protocols). It seems to work OK but may still be full of gaps, holes, bugs, missteps, etc. It helped bring a lot of extra safety to a couple of places that really needed it though, and seemed to remain quite stable for a couple of months.

This is implemented as a Python module, rather than MyPy stubs, as it represents a protocol things can satisfy rather than a set of types for something concrete.

This package came together during an exploration documented here: python/mypy#7654

Define a callable application as a class:

import wsgitypes

class MyApplication(wsgitypes.Application):
    def __call__(
        environ: wsgitypes.Environ,
        start_response: wsgitypes.StartResponse,
    ) -> wsgitypes.Response:
        my_header = environ.get("REQUEST_METHOD", "")
        return []

Environ should be type-safe:

class MyApplication(wsgitypes.Application):
    def __call__(
        environ: wsgitypes.Environ,
        start_response: wsgitypes.StartResponse,
    ) -> wsgitypes.Response:
        environ["wsgi.input"] # Good
        environ["wsgi.unpot"] # BORK! MyPy will catch this.
        return []

You can define your own extensions to Environ using TypedDict inheritance, like so:

class MyEnviron(wsgitypes.Environ):
    HTTP_X_MY_HEADER: t.Optional[str]

class MyApplication(wsgitypes.Application):
    def __call__(
        environ: MyEnviron,
        start_response: wsgitypes.StartResponse,
    ) -> wsgitypes.Response:
        environ = typing.cast(MyEnviron, environ)
        environ.get("HTTP_X_MY_HEADER") # Good
        return []

Note that you need to use typing.cast to convert the incoming Environ to your derived version. An attempt was made to use a type param for Environ, but it wasn't viable (even with GVR helping!): python/mypy#7654

Python typing and validation with mypy and pydantic.

Python is a dynamically typed programming language, which means the types are only checked at runtime and a variable is allowed to change its type over its lifetime, whereas a statically typed language like Java checks the types at compile-time, and a variable is not allowed to change its type over its lifetime. On the other hand, Python is a strongly typed language because the types cannot be automatically converted at runtime. For example, you cannot have an addition calculation on integer 1 and string "2", while in a weakly typed language such as JavaScript such calculation is allowed.

Even though dynamic typing can make it faster to write Python code in the development stage, it is also very easy to introduce bugs and errors which can only be identified at runtime. Besides, with no type definitions, the code can be more difficult to read and maintain. For example, you need to read through a function to get to know what type of data would be returned by it. However, with type hints or type annotations, the return type of a function can be known immediately. Once a program is developed, you would rarely need to rewrite or redesign it. However, it is much more common that you or your colleagues need to read or maintain it after some time. Therefore, making the code easier to read would be very important, especially if you work in a team where people have to review each other’s code.

Typing has become more and more important in Python and the type hint standards introduced in PEP484 make it possible and easy to add type annotations to your Python code. After type hints have been added to a Python file, the mypy library can be used to do static type checking before it is run. Besides, pydantic, a data validation library using Python type annotations, can enforce type hints at runtime and provide user-friendly errors when data is invalid.

Basic Data Types in Python | Python Web Development For Beginners

At the end of 2019, Python is one of the fastest-growing programming languages. More than 10% of developers have opted for Python development.

In the programming world, Data types play an important role. Each Variable is stored in different data types and responsible for various functions. Python had two different objects, and They are mutable and immutable objects.

Table of Contents  hide

I Mutable objects

II Immutable objects

III Built-in data types in Python

Mutable objects

The Size and declared value and its sequence of the object can able to be modified called mutable objects.

Mutable Data Types are list, dict, set, byte array

Immutable objects

The Size and declared value and its sequence of the object can able to be modified.

Immutable data types are int, float, complex, String, tuples, bytes, and frozen sets.

id() and type() is used to know the Identity and data type of the object







Built-in data types in Python

a**=str(“Hello python world”)****#str**














Numbers (int,Float,Complex)

Numbers are stored in numeric Types. when a number is assigned to a variable, Python creates Number objects.

#signed interger




Python supports 3 types of numeric data.

int (signed integers like 20, 2, 225, etc.)

float (float is used to store floating-point numbers like 9.8, 3.1444, 89.52, etc.)

complex (complex numbers like 8.94j, 4.0 + 7.3j, etc.)

A complex number contains an ordered pair, i.e., a + ib where a and b denote the real and imaginary parts respectively).


The string can be represented as the sequence of characters in the quotation marks. In python, to define strings we can use single, double, or triple quotes.

# String Handling

‘Hello Python’

#single (') Quoted String

“Hello Python”

# Double (") Quoted String

“”“Hello Python”“”

‘’‘Hello Python’‘’

# triple (‘’') (“”") Quoted String

In python, string handling is a straightforward task, and python provides various built-in functions and operators for representing strings.

The operator “+” is used to concatenate strings and “*” is used to repeat the string.


output**:****‘Hello python’**

"python "*****2

'Output : Python python ’

The Rising Value of Big Data in Application Monitoring

In an ecosystem that has become increasingly integrated with huge chunks of data and information traveling through the airwaves, Big Data has become irreplaceable for establishments.

From day-to-day business operations to detailed customer interactions, many ventures heavily invest in data sciences and data analysis  to find breakthroughs and marketable insights.

Plus, surviving in the current era, mandates taking informed decisions and surgical precision based on the projected forecast of current trends to retain profitability. Hence these days, data is revered as the most valuable resource.

According to a recent study by Sigma Computing , the world of Big Data is only projected to grow bigger, and by 2025 it is estimated that the global data-sphere will grow to reach 17.5 Zettabytes. FYI one Zettabyte is equal to 1 million Petabytes.

Moreover, the Big Data industry will be worth an estimate of $77 billion by 2023. Furthermore, the Banking sector generates unparalleled quantities of data, with the amount of data generated by the financial industry each second growing by 700% in 2021.

In light of this information, let’s take a quick look at some of the ways application monitoring can use Big Data, along with its growing importance and impact.

Here Are The Features That A Cloud Based SaaS Application Requires

Fast setup and slick UIs create incredible first impressions on users. However, enterprise managers are aware of the fact that they are at the tip of the iceberg. One of the features of a SaaS is interoperability, and such aspects are the ones that business owners need to lay a solid foundation.

Are you aware of the term “Software as a Service (SaaS)?” You probably heard it several times, but you may not know what it’s all about. Well, a SaaS, designed by a cloud-based application development company, is a cloud-based service that helps consumers gain access to software applications over the web. These applications remain hosted on the cloud and used for various purposes by companies as well as individuals.

SaaS created by a cloud-based application development company is the best alternative to traditional software installation systems. You may compare it with a TV channel that’s available for subscription. The user connects to a remotely-located base on a central server and uses a license to access data.

In other words, SaaS offers a method of software delivery by which you can access data from any device connected to the internet. Of course, this particular device should have a web browser. Software vendors host everything associated with the application, including servers, code, and databases.
