Nothing-but-Iffy HTTP I/O Library

Project Description

NIHIL is a small package which contains utilities to make HTTP services using the Python asyncio framework. It provides the following facilities:

  • Request and Response objects (àla WebOb, but simpler).
  • HTTP protocol implementation for asyncio.
  • HTTP request parser.
  • Request routing.

NIHIL lends itself to be used as a small web framework, by means of the routing system; or to use the lower level components its parts for other purposes.

One of the mails goals is to keep the package compatible with both Python 2.7 and 3.x, supporting both CPython and PyPy.
