router.add_route('/', 'views:index_view')

application = router.as_wsgi

if __name__=='__main__':
    from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server
    make_server('', 8000, application).serve_forever()

from webob import Response

def post_view(request):
    post_name = request.urlvars['name']
    # ... process post_name
    return Response("Post output for %s"%post_name)
