a small, process-pooled web server utilizing the built-in Python socketserver

Project description


fooster-web is a small, process-pooled web server utilizing the built-in Python socketserver. It is designed from the ground up to be well structured, to conform to the HTTP/1.1 standard, and to allow for easy creation of a RESTful interface.

Build Status Coverage Status


Below is a basic example that stores data via a PUT method and retrieves data via a GET method on any resource. If a resource has not been set, it returns a 404 error.

import fooster.db

import fooster.web

data = fooster.db.Database('data.db', ['path', 'body'])

class Handler(fooster.web.HTTPHandler):
    def do_get(self):
            return 200, data[self.groups['path']].body
        except KeyError:
            raise fooster.web.HTTPError(404)

    def do_put(self):
        data[self.groups['path']] = data.Entry(self.request.body.decode())

        return 200, 'Accepted\n'

    def do_delete(self):
            del data[self.groups['path']]
        except KeyError:
            raise fooster.web.HTTPError(404)

        return 200, 'Deleted\n'

routes = {r'/(?P<path>.*)': Handler}

if __name__ == '__main__':
    import signal

    httpd = fooster.web.HTTPServer(('localhost', 8000), routes)


    signal.signal(signal.SIGINT, lambda signum, frame: httpd.close())
