Pylets is an object- and aspect-oriented framework for
making mod_python applications. It consists of two parts:
Goals: "Don't reinvent the wheel."
- The PyletHandler, which handles global configuration and
dispatches Apache request to pylets, and
- Pylets: a framework for making objects which service
requests. It is aspect oriented so you can mix in things
like boilerplate headers / footers; programmer-
controllable caching; sessions and authentication.
Read INSTALL for installation, docs for information.
- Uses Apache, for process management/scalability,
robustness. No extra servers to maintain. Uses Apache
logs (and in the future, more Apache configuration.)
- Uses Python / mod_python: no toy languages, no compilers
or preprocessors. Use the features of Python, so no
component framework: use Python objects, packages and
modules, or whatever the programmer wants. Pylets are
also template-agnostic. (mod_python comes with PSP, if
you want that.)
- Be fast. With the debug switches off, and caching turned
on, Pylets are less than 2x slower than serving static
ORMit is a super-light object-relational mapper that comes with
ORMit is designed to be lightweight, transparent, and
connection-free. Transparency was it's main goal: it will
never hold onto a connection, and it will tell you exactly
what SQL it is using. It resembles PyDO and SQLObject, for
sure. It plugs into any DB-API 2.0 compatible connector that
support pyformat, like psycopg.
If Pylet's motto is "Don't reinvent the wheel", ORMit's
motto is "No magic!"
