Pylons Web Framework

Project description

The Pylons web framework is aimed at making webapps and large programmatic website development in Python easy. Several key points:

  • 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

Knowing Python makes Pylons easy

Pylons makes it easy to expand on your knowledge of Python to master Pylons for web development. Using a MVC style dispath, Python knowledge is used at various levels:

  • The Controller is just a basic Python class, called for each request. Customizing the response is as easy as overriding __call__ to make your webapp work how you want.
  • Mako templating compiles directly to Python byte-code for speed and utilizes Python for template control rather than creating its own template syntax for “for, while, etc”
