Webpyte is a new megaframework for web development, inspired by TurboGears, and based on:
Why use Webpyte?Only 2/3 as much RAM. TurboGears and Pylons typically use 25 MB RAM for a Hello World and 30 MB for a small website. Webpyte only uses 15 MB and 20 MB respectively. Much of this is due to the CherryPy upgrade. Do you know how much RAM you are using in your sites? Lightweight. Webpyte integrates those projects in such a way that, if you aren't going to use one of them, it is not even going to be imported. For instance, if you prefer Mako to Genshi, just don't import the wp_genshi module. That is all. All the advantages of CherryPy 3.1. Virtual hosts: You can serve more than one application from the same process. Webpyte already has "Auth", a small, nice form authentication and authorization framework. It is easily extensible. Existing modules for pages, blogs, contact forms, image upload and management, product catalogues and downloading a backup of the database: WebpytePackages. During development, exceptions are shown by Ian Bicking's evalexception: you can see the source code, the variables, and interact in a Python interpreter! (Or just have the normal CherryPy 3 behaviour.) In production, the exception messages are hidden, but sent to you via e-mail (if you want it). Webpyte provides a defaultdict that is passed to all templates, containing variables and functions that are used very often. Webpyte provides transactions using SQLAlchemy. And you can use more than one database. It works. See SitesPoweredByWebpyte. Python 2.6. Other frameworks support ancient Python versions. We are new, so we demand 2.6 which is full of cool features. Webpyte disadvantagesCurrently, documentation is mostly in the code itself. Very small community. Internationalization (i18n) is coming soon. Where is the code?See InstallingWebpyte.
An older version, BasedOnTurboGears, is available as: svn checkout http://webpyte.googlecode.com/svn/tags/0.1-based-on-TG1 webpyte0.1
RoadmapFor Webpyte 0.1 we are missing:
Authentication that supports OpenID well Internationalization
For next versions:
More modules, more functionality Accept integration of other projects such as Mako (if someone contributes it) Your suggestions?
