WSGI request routing for Python objects

Project Description

Redfox provides a simple, declarative routing mechanism for creating WSGI entry points into applications. It’s broadly similar to microframeworks like juno or CherryPy.


  1. It’s tiny. The redfox package contains under 100 lines of code. Redfox builds heavily on the Werkzeug tools to implement its features, rather than re-reinventing the wheel.

  2. It’s clean. The following is a valid Redfox application class:

    from werkzeug import Response
    from redfox import WebApplication
    from redfox.routing import get, post
    class Example(WebApplication):
        def index(self, request):
            return Response("Hello, world!")
  3. It’s minimal. Redfox does not impose a persistance mechanism, or a view mechanism. Bring your own, or create your own tools.
