Simple wrapper around tornado that uses environment variables for host, port, endpoint prefix. Also uses the py-hancock library for the ability to sign endpoints. Endpoints for `time`, `ping`, and `status` are automatically added as well.

Project Description

capuchin 0.0.6

Tornado server with some built-in endpoints.

Here’s a simple usage example:

import capuchin.web

class TestHandler(tornado.web.RequestHandler):
        def get(self):

def test_job():
        print("did some job")

if __name__ == "__main__":
        c = capuchin.web.Application([
                (r"/test", TestHandler),
        c.add_status_job("Test Job", 5, test_job)

The Application looks at the environment variables HOST, PORT, and ENDPOINT on initialization. If These are not set the defaults are HOST:, PORT: 8080, ENDPOINT: /.
