Rapid application builder

Project Description


rapido.core allows to run Rapido applications.

rapido.core can run on Zope or Pyramid. The initial target is Plone (using rapido.plone), but a POC has been successfully implemented on Substance D.

Database design

A Rapido application can be built from Plone using rapido.plone or provided from sources (read from the local file system).

Anyhow, at the end, the database design is just a set of YAML/HTML/Python files.

The rapido.plone documentation gives a good overview of Rapido features.

Record storage

Storage is not handled directly by rapido.core.

By default, we use rapido.souper which allows to store records in a soup.

Using ZODB is not mandatory, different storages could be easily implemented (SQL-based storage, remote storage services, etc.).
