Strings is a simple WSGI wrapped setup that makes use of webob.
There are many different python web application frameworks out there. And many excellent ones!
Usually these frameworks offer you an API ( a big, poorly documented, magical API ) which you need to learn in order to use the framework.
Strings aim to provide a different approach. It wants to put developers in control of their application and make them aware of the API's they use. By building your application as a collection of WSGI middleware, you can make use of whichever components you like, study their source and API, and be in control of your application.
So what is the use of strings?
Well, really none. Strings is just a simple WSGI wrapped setup that developers can use as a base for their web application. It is largely based on Ian Bicking's Do-It-Yourself Framework, and one is encouraged to read the strings tutorial which explains strings 200+ lines of code before using it.
