+ Consistent process name: twork::hello/



virtualenv is recommend.

+ `virtualenv <>`_ is a tool to create isolated Python environments
+ Initialize and enter the app virtualenv
+ For example, creating the hello application here

Install twork

+ pip install `twork <>`_
+ easy_install `twork <>`_

TworkApp Build

Create your own tornado application based on twork.

+ twork-admin -app=hello -prefix=~/workspace
+ cd ~/workspace

Web Handler(Optional)

+ write your web request handler in hello/hello/web/action directory,
the handler should be Inherited from twork.web.action.base.BaseHandler
+ add uri:handler map to HANDLERS in hello/hello/

Run TworkApp within twork

+ make install
+ tworkd OR tworkd -config_file=conf/twork.conf

Access the web server

+ http://localhost:8000/v1.0/hello/stats
+ http://localhost:8000/v1.0/twork/stats

Check Htpp Response

+ Server: TWS/
+ TworkApp: HELLO/
