Project description

eweb

eweb(easy web) is a fast and simple micro-framework for small web applications. Its goal is to enable you to develop web applications in a simple and understandable way.

With it, you don't need to know the HTTP protocol, or how Python communicates with JavaScript.

Usage

Step1

Create a file, such as main.py:

from eweb import Server


def hello(name):
    return 'hello %s!' % name


if __name__ == '__main__':
    server = Server(port=5000)
    server.services['hello'] = hello

    server.run()

Step2

  1. Create a folder named static
  2. Create a HTML file in the static folder, such as index.html:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
   <meta charset="UTF-8">
   <title>index</title>
   <script src="/service.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<script>
   //say hello
   service.call('hello', {'name': 'eweb'}, function(data){
       alert(data);
       /**
       ...
       Anything you want to do
       ...
       */
   });
</script>
</body>
</html>

Step3

Run the main.py. Then, visit http://localhost:5000/index.html in your browser. You will get alert message "hello eweb!".

It's also easy if you want to develop desktop applications with eweb. At this point, usually, you need a callback function and a random port to start the server. What you need to do will be like this:

from eweb import Server


def hello(name):
    return 'hello %s!' % name


def callback():
    print('Server startup completed!')
    import webbrowser
    webbrowser.open('http://localhost:%s/index.html' % server.port)
    

if __name__ == '__main__':
    server = Server(port=None)
    server.services['hello'] = hello

    server.run()

Run main.py, then, after the server is started, the index.html page will open automatically in the browser.

Note

The static folder is a resource folder, and files under this folder can be accessed directly. So, usually, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files should be placed in this folder, and other private files should not be placed in this folder.
