The handy Python web framework.

Project description is a WSGI micro-framework with the following development constraints:

  • Single file, no external dependency
  • Provide enough features to build a web application with minimal effort
  • Embed a compact template engine
  • Keep the module reasonably small

Main features:

  • Routing
  • Error handlers
  • File uploads
  • Static files
  • Fast template engine
  • Secure cookies

Disclaimer: this framework is intentionally limited. If you need a robust and scalable solution, look elsewhere.

Thank you to Daniel Lindsley (toastdriven) for itty, the itty-bitty web framework which helped me to kick-start the project.

Thank you to Andriy Kornatskyy (akorn) for his blazingly fast and elegant template library wheezy.template: it is the inspiration for the template engine of

The following projects were also a great source of ideas:

  • Werkzeug (HTTPHeaders and EnvironHeaders datastructures)
  • WebOb (parsing the Accept headers)
  • Bottle (embedding a simple template engine)
  • Jinja2 and Mako (common template engine syntax and features)
