Current Status

The code stays pretty stable, but some of the API will probably change in the future.

The BlazeWeb tip is installable via easy_install with easy_install BlazeWeb==dev

Change Log

0.4.8 released 2013-12-17

  • adjust setup_file_logging() to accept an argument for the settings object

0.4.7 released 2012-10-24

  • add extra_context argument to View.render_json()

0.4.6 released 2012-07-16

  • Fixed 0.4.5 regression: previously, a POST XHR would try for xhr() and then post() on a view class, but 0.4.5 would only try for xhr().

0.4.5 released 2012-07-09

  • add include_rst() and include_mkdn() as functions available in Jinja templates
  • css and js from included templates is now always included, regardless of where in the child template the include method is called.
  • add “content” template filter which will merge css/js from the given content object into the parent template
  • add link_css_url(), source_js_url() and complimentary head_link_tags() and head_script_tags() template functions to be able to include CSS/JS URLs from any template.
  • make HTTP request method handling more robust. Its now easier to respond to request methods that are not GET/POST and we will now correctly return a 405 Method Not Allowed response when the view can not handle the request method sent over.

0.4.4 released 2011-11-09

  • fix a nasty bug in the View arg processing that can alter formencode validator

0.4.3 released 2011-10-22

  • add routing.abs_static_url(), is available in the template too
  • jinja.Translator can now render strings: ag.tplengine.render_string(…)
  • change requirement in for minimock now that 1.2.7 has been released
  • detect BW_STORAGE_DIR environ variable

0.4.2 released 2011-06-11

  • fix bug in UserProxy

0.4.1 released 2011-06-11

  • fixed bw project command, it will now create a decent project file/folder skeleton, see example below.
  • minimock’s 1.2.6 release breaks some usage of the library, “pin” dependency at 1.2.5
  • add config option http_exception_handling, default behavior is unchanged
  • add testing.runview() to make it easier to test views without a WSGI test runner (Werkzeug Client, WebTest TestApp)

Project skeleton will look like:
