A microservice framework for Python.

Mix & Match Protocols

Microservices need to do more than just HTTP request-response. Nameko lets you write services that also publish and consume asynchronous messages, with any protocol you choose. Use the built-in extensions, leverage the community, or build your own.

Focus on business logic

Write regular Python methods and classes to implement your service. Connections, transports and concurrency are hidden behind clean abstractions.

Helpfully Opinionated

Nameko encourages a particular way of writing services that separates concerns, and makes the services and extensions easy to reason about and test.
