ANN: Snakelets 1.9 (simple-to-use web app server with dynamic pages)

Discussion in 'Python' started by Irmen de Jong, Dec 15, 2003.

  1. I'm happy to say that Snakelets 1.9 is available.

    Snakelets is a Python web application server, mainly for educational
    purposes (but it works fine, mind you). This project provides a threaded web
    server, Ypages (HTML+Python language, similar to Java's JSPs) and Snakelets:
    code-centric page request handlers (similar to Java's Servlets).

    Snakelet's focus is on understanding the way dynamic web sites are created
    (the code is very compact and easy to understand), and make this process as
    easy as possible, while still providing a rich and powerful server
    environment.

    It's released under the open-source MIT Software license.
    You can download from http://snakelets.sourceforge.net
    (go to the SF project site, and then the file section).

    Changes since 1.8:

    - removed disk-based pagecache, cache is now in memory (no extra overhead!)
    (this means that it can run in a read-only environment)
    - YpageEngine changed to use memory-based cache
    - page compiler changed to return generated python code as unicode string
    instead of a file
    - now honors If-Modified-Since and If-None-Match HTTP headers, for cache
    control. Much less reloading!
    - server logs real ip adress of client instead of localhost, when proxied
    - Management console now shows active sessions, and you can kill them
    - fixed konqueror cookie issues
    - fixed directory ending '/' redirection bug
    - optimized url processing (webapp/snakelet searching)
    - server can do request/header debugging
    - fixed hanging browser connection when snakelet throws exception.
    - webapp can specify a default page template to use for all Ypages.
    - a few other small fixes and improvements

    To start, just start the serv.py script, or the monitor.py script
    if you want to start it as a daemon (on Unix). Enjoy!

    Enjoy,
    --Irmen de Jong.
