Pylons Web Framework

Project Description

The Pylons web framework is designed for building web applications and sites in an easy and concise manner. They can range from as small as a single Python module, to a substantial directory layout for larger and more complex web applications.

Pylons comes with project templates that help boot-strap a new web application project, or you can start from scratch and set things up exactly as desired.

Example Hello World

from paste.httpserver import serve from pylons import Configurator, Response

class Hello(object):
def __init__(self, request):
self.request = request
def index(self):
return Response(body=”Hello World!”)
if __name__ == ‘__main__’:
config = Configurator() config.begin() config.add_handler(‘home’, ‘/’, handler=Hello, action=’index’) config.end() serve(config.make_wsgi_app(), host=‘0.0.0.0’)

Core Features

  • A framework to make writing web applications in Python easy
  • Utilizes a minimalist, component-based philosophy that makes it easy to expand on
  • Harness existing knowledge about Python
  • Extensible application design
  • Fast and efficient, an incredibly small per-request call-stack providing top performance
  • Uses existing and well tested Python packages

Current Status

Pylons 1.0 series is stable and production ready. The Pylons Project now maintains the Pyramid web framework for future development. Pylons 1.0 users should strongly consider using it for their next project.
