hopak framework base package
Formerly project was formgear.
Main idea behind hopak allow iteratively create data models in easy readable form and use them as part of your websites. At this moment only MongoDB is allowed.
Imagine what happends when you plan to create new site (for yourself or client). You doing several steps and one important is make raw draft of what content you will publish and relation between different types of content. Usually it implies you bootstrap your framework, step over several stages of creating scaffold and only then write models code. In the worst case you write SQL.
But we are living in 21 century, have decoded DNA, pushing frontier into space, digging into core of the atoms and listening dubstep! Why we must to write all that crap? Why computers cann’t just do all this stuff?
So that is why we invent hopak. Because we want computers to do that they supposed to do.
hopak is only part of this effort, but there are already some results. So, example how to make simple model. We use YAML because it is very human readable. Minimal file:
# user.yaml title: User description: > This is user model. fields: - name: name - name: email - name: site - name: about
This file is enough to use it as model in your python code:
# models.py from hopak.models import Model class User(Model): __yaml__ = 'user.yaml'
hopak is only a library for bigger framework, if you decide to use the whole stack then you will get site with admin section including list, edit, add, search, delete sections for each models.
- setup.py dependency changed to setuptools form distutils
- Python 3 support
- urgent fix for non saving model instances
- fix release, added hopak.ds to package
- renamed from formgear to hopak
- added independed data sources, but atm still have only mongodb datasource
