Since there are quite a lot of web application frameworks for Python, I think one more wouldn't hurt.
I was impressed by the compactness of Ruby's Sinatra:
require 'rubygems' require 'sinatra' get '/' do 'Hello world!' end
My goal was to create something similar for Python, as a proof-of-concept. Here is the equivalent Hello, world web application with my Python syntax:
from wfotd import * @GET def _(): return 'Hello world!'
The Ruby solution looks much more clear and beautiful. Nevertheless, it was a nice Python coding experiment. I named it PYthon Web Framework Of The Day. The source is available at http://code.google.com/p/pts-mini-gpl/source/browse/#svn/trunk/pywfotd.
Here is a larger Python example, demonstrating the scoping and argument passing features of pywfotd:
from wfotd import * @GET def _(name=None): name = name or 'World' return 'Hello, %s!' % name @GET def foo(): return 'This is /foo' class bar: class baz: @GET def _(): return 'This is /bar/baz' @GET def quux(): return 'This is /bar/baz/quux'
