Python WSGI web development framework based on XML pipelines

Project Description

Pycoon is a Python WSGI web development framework which allows XML processing pipelines to handle HTTP requests based on URI pattern matching. It is similar in intention to the Apache Cocoon framework. Pycoon uses sitemap file format compatible with Apache Cocoon Sitemap 1.0.

The architecture of Pycoon focuses on:

  • Full sitemap file format compatibility with Apache Cocoon
  • Heavy usage of WSGI modularity ideas
  • Simplicity of deployment
  • Optimization issues

Pycoon is a WSGI middleware that dispatches requests based on Apache Cocoon sitemap logic. Data is processed by an XML pipeline composed of several WSGI applications and middleware components. An HTTP server WSGI interface and it’s implementations (Pycoon front-end) are already complete. WSGI interfaces of sitemap components and implementations of them (Pycoon back-end) are in progress.
