Web Application Framework

Project Description

Airy is a new Web application development framework.

Contrast to most currently available frameworks, Airy doesn’t use the standard notion of HTTP requests and pages.

Instead, it makes use of WebSockets (via and provides a set of tools to let you focus on the interface, not content delivery.

Currently Airy supports MongoDB only. We will support other NoSQL databases, but we have no plans for supporting SQL.


Airy will install most required modules itself when you create a new project, so all you need is:

  • Python 2.6+
  • MongoDB


pip install airy

This will install Airy itself and the script.


Once you have it installed, you should be able to use

To create a new project, open a terminal and do: startproject project_name
cd project_name/
python update_ve
python runserver

You should have it running locally on port 8000. Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:8000

Note: if it complains about a “Connection Error” it means you have no MongoDB running, or it’s dead.


Airy is created by Leto, a startup agency based in London, UK. Check out Leto website for help and support:
