We’ll use FastAPI and Redis to build a One Time Secret API so you can securely share secrets with people.

deploying them is not so easy… I need to install gunicorn but there is no way to do that. Am I missing something? This is what my Run command looks like

gunicorn --worker-tmp-dir /dev/shm --config gunicorn.conf.py app.main:app

The error is

bash gunicorn: command not found

using sudo apt install gunicorn is also not allowed, so how do we start a FastAPI app?
