Project description



Welcome to the notmm toolkit, a open and accessible web publishing platform on top of Django and WSGI.

Design philosophy

Scalable and non-monolithic By Design

Allow developers to write scalable Django apps easily. The notmm toolkit provides a modular API to develop reusable WSGI applications environment on top of the Django framework.

Pragmatic Web Application Development

Allow developers to test and develop server side WSGI applications in a restricted environment by writing unit tests.

Rapid Framework Refactoring

Based on the unittest module for continuous integration and rapid web framework refactoring.
