Starter application and handlers for tornado web apps.

Project description

A base application and boilerplate for the Tornado web server.


To include tornadobase in your application install using pip:

pip install tornadobase

Run the tests

pip install nose



tornadobase provides basic Application and Handler classes that wrap up some of the boilerplate you’ll typically need when using the Tornado web server. To get a simple site running, create a file called

from tornadobase.handlers import BaseHandler
from tornadobase.application import Application

class IndexHandler(BaseHandler):

    def get(self):
        self.write('Hello, World!')

class MyApp(Application):

    def init_handlers(self):

        self.handlers = [
            (r'/', IndexHandler)

Then start the web server:
