Do you like FastAPI?

Would you like to help FastAPI, other users, and the author?

Or would you like to get help with FastAPI?

There are very simple ways to help (several involve just one or two clicks).

And there are several ways to get help too.

Star FastAPI in GitHub

You can "star" FastAPI in GitHub (clicking the star button at the top right): ⭐️

By adding a star, other users will be able to find it more easily and see that it has been already useful for others.

Watch the GitHub repository for releases

You can "watch" FastAPI in GitHub (clicking the "watch" button at the top right): 👀

There you can select "Releases only".

Doing it, you will receive notifications (in your email) whenever there's a new release (a new version) of FastAPI with bug fixes and new features.

Connect with the author

You can connect with me (Sebastián Ramírez / tiangolo), the author.

You can:

  • Follow me on GitHub.
    • See other Open Source projects I have created that could help you.
    • Follow me to see when I create a new Open Source project.
  • Follow me on Twitter.
    • Tell me how you use FastAPI (I love to hear that).
    • Hear when I make announcements or release new tools.
  • Connect with me on Linkedin.
    • Hear when I make announcements or release new tools (although I use Twitter more often 🤷‍♂).
  • Read what I write (or follow me) on or Medium.
    • Read other ideas, articles, and about tools I have created.
    • Follow me to read when I publish something new.

Tweet about FastAPI

Tweet about FastAPI and let me and others know why you like it. 🎉

I love to hear about how FastAPI is being used, what have you liked in it, in which project/company are you using it, etc.

Help others with issues in GitHub

You can see existing issues and try and help others, most of the times they are questions that you might already know the answer for. 🤓

Watch the GitHub repository

You can "watch" FastAPI in GitHub (clicking the "watch" button at the top right): 👀

If you select "Watching" instead of "Releases only", you will receive notifications when someone creates a new issue.

Then you can try and help them solving those issues.

Create issues

You can create a new issue in the GitHub repository, for example to:

  • Ask a question or ask about a problem.
  • Suggest a new feature.

Note: if you create an issue then I'm going to ask you to also help others. 😉

Create a Pull Request

You can create a Pull Request, for example:

  • To fix a typo you found on the documentation.
  • To propose new documentation sections.
  • To fix an existing issue/bug.
  • To add a new feature.

Join the chat

Join the chat at

Join the chat on Gitter:

There you can have quick conversations with others, help others, share ideas, etc.

But have in mind that as it allows more "free conversation", it's easy to ask questions that are too general and more difficult to answer, so, you might not receive answers.

In GitHub issues the template will guide to to write the right question so that you can more easily get a good answer, or even solve the problem yourself even before asking. And in GitHub I can make sure I always answer everything, even if it takes some time. I can't personally do that with the Gitter chat. 😅

Conversations in Gitter are also not as easily searchable as in GitHub, so questions and answers might get lost in the conversation.

On the other side, there's more than 1000 people in the chat, so there's a high chance you'll find someone to talk to there, almost all the time. 😄

You can also financially support the author (me) through GitHub sponsors.

There you could buy me a coffee ☕️ to say thanks 😄.

As you have seen in the documentation, FastAPI stands on the shoulders of giants, Starlette and Pydantic.

You can also sponsor:

Thanks! 🚀
