Highly-optimized, pure-python HTTP server
Cheroot is the high-performance, pure-Python HTTP server used by CherryPy.
The test suite currently relies on pytest. It’s being run via GitHub Actions CI/CD workflows.
Professional support for Cheroot is available as part of the Tidelift Subscription. The CherryPy maintainers and the maintainers of thousands of other packages are working with Tidelift to deliver one enterprise subscription that covers all of the open source you use.
Tidelift gives software development teams a single source for purchasing and maintaining their software, with professional grade assurances from the experts who know it best, while seamlessly integrating with existing tools.
Want to add something to upstream? Feel free to submit a PR or file an issue if unsure. Please follow CherryPy’s common contribution guidelines. Note that PR is more likely to be accepted if it includes tests and detailed description helping maintainers to understand it better 🎉
Oh, and be pythonic, please 🐍
