Ice - WSGI on the rocks.

Project Description

Ice is a Python module with a WSGI microframework meant for developing small web applications in Python. It is a single file Python module inspired by Bottle.

Why Ice?

This microframework was born as a result of experimenting with WSGI framework. Since what started as a small experiment turned out to be several hundred lines of code, it made sense to share the source code on the web, just in case anyone else benefits from it.

This microframework has a very limited set of features currently. It may be used to develop small web applications. For large web applications, it may make more sense to use a more wholesome framework such as Flask or Django.

It is possible that you may find that this framework is missing a useful API that another major framework provides. In such a case, you have direct access to the WSGI internals to do what you want via the documented API.

If you believe that a missing feature or a bug fix would be useful to others, you may report an issue, or even better, fork this project on GitHub, develop the missing feature or the bug fix, and send a patch or a pull request. In fact, you are very welcome to do so, and turn this experimental project into a matured one by contributing your code and expertise.


This module should be used with Python 3.3 or any later version of Python interpreter.

This module depends only on the Python standard library. It does not depend on any third party libraries.


You can install this module using pip3 using the following command.

pip3 install ice

You can install this module from source distribution. To do so, download the latest .tar.gz file from, extract it, then open command prompt or shell, and change your current directory to the directory where you extracted the source distribution, and then execute the following command.

python3 install

Note that on a Windows system, you may have to replace python3 with the path to your Python 3 interpreter.
