Web and Database modules for easily building dynamic websites. Full WSGI Support.

Project description

The Python Web Modules are a suite of simple and easy to use Python components
designed to allow developers to write Python CGI scripts or web applications
with SQL databases, sessions, templates, email and authorisation functionality.

A key part of the project is the creation of documentation and examples to allow
developers with less time or experience to begin Python web programming without
having to read all the sources and comments from the very beginning.

The modules can easily be used on shared web hosting accounts running Apache and
Python for example or with the built in webserver. They are designed to be
easily accessible to beginners or developers currently using PHP or Perl whilst
also offering lower level APIs for experts to create powerful dynamic websites.


* The web.auth module has been completely re-written to include roles,
encryption and much more.
* The web.session and web.auth modules have slighlty different APIs to
remove the need for a separate Driver object.
* Most of the WSGI module has changed and the documentation been vastly
* Documentation and examples have been updated
* Removal of web.xml and libxml2 and libxslt. It was felt that there are
plenty of good XML modules around and there was no point in including them in
the web modules when they can be chosen by a user who needs them anyway.
