Discussion on: Why Choose Flask Over FastAPI

I have already started a website using Flask.
So I should use Flask Aspispec 'plugin' to create its API.
I was at crossroard on how Im going to run a new framework (FastAPI), on top of another framework.

It seems everyone is recommending FastAPI.
There is (here on a 5 part step-by-step tutorial how to creat Flask API, and part 5 says "How I left Flask to FaskAPI". He just got sponsored by their marketing team, It seems.

Thank you for elaborating. It seems this article was published to clarify my dilemma at the point of departure...

The aim of this article is to illustrate the point that you don't compare Flask and FastAPI. Compare something like Flask-restx to FastAPI.
