    WHIFF -- WSGI/HTTP INTEGRATED
    FILESYSTEM FRAMES

    WHIFF is an infrastructure for easily building
    complex Python/WSGI Web applications by
    combining smaller and simpler WSGI components
    organized within file system trees.

    To read about WHIFF view the WHIFF documentation at

    http://aaron.oirt.rutgers.edu/myapp/docs/W.intro.

    To PLAY WITH WHIFF try the demos listed in the demos page at

    http://aaron.oirt.rutgers.edu/myapp/docs/W1300.testAndDemo.

    To DOWNLOAD WHIFF go to the WHIFF project
    information page at

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/whiff

    and follow the download instructions.

    To get the latest clone the
    WHIFF Mercurial repository located at

    http://aaron.oirt.rutgers.edu/cgi-bin/whiffRepo.cgi.

    Why WHIFF?
    ==========
    WHIFF (WSGI HTTP Integrated Filesystem Frames)
    is intended to make it easier to create, deploy,
    and maintain large and complex Python based WSGI
    Web applications. I created WHIFF to address
    complexity issues I encounter when creating and
    fixing sophisticated Web applications which
    include complex database interactions
    and dynamic features such as AJAX
    (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML).

    The primary tools which reduce complexity are
    an infrastructure for managing web application
    name spaces, a configuration template language
    for wiring named components into an application,
    and an applications programmer interface for
    accessing named components from Python and
    javascript modules.

    All supporting conventions and tools offered by
    WHIFF are optional. WHIFF is designed to work well
    with other modules conformant to the
    WSGI (Web Service Gateway Interface) standard.
    Developers and designers are free to use those
    WHIFF tools that work for them and ignore or
    replace the others.

    WHIFF does not provide a "packaged cake mix"
    for baking a web application.
    Instead WHIFF is designed to provide a set of
    ingredients which can be easily combined to make
    web applications (with no need to refine your own
    sugar or mill your own wheat).

    I hope you like it. -- Aaron Watters
