RESTful Web Framework

Project Description

Tangled.Web is a somewhat opinionated, resource oriented Web framework. It might be considered a “micro” framework because it simply provides a way to map HTTP requests to resources and has no opinions regarding databases, templating, etc.

Unlike many other frameworks, there are no “views” or “controllers” here, only resources. Resources respond to HTTP requests and return representations based on the client’s preference (indicated via Accept headers).

Documentation (in progress)

Python 3

Tangled.Web runs only on Python 3.3+. Part of the reason for this is simply that I didn’t feel like dealing with straddling 2|3. I also wanted to use some features that aren’t available in earlier versions (e.g., built-in namespace packages). Finally, I’ve been itching to really learn all the new Python 3 goodness, and a Python 3 only project seemed like a good way to do that (it has been so far).

I’m also of the opinion that Python 3 has almost arrived. Most of the libraries I’ve been using for the past several years (SQLAlchemy, Mako, WebOb, etc) have already been ported.
