weblayer is a Python library, built on WebOb, that provides a set of components that can be used to handle requests within a WSGI application.
It is not a framework. In contrast, weblayer tries to prescribe as little as possible, allowing you to swap out components and work with your weapons of choice.
It's fast, tested and documented. The source code is public domain.
weblayer requires Python version 2.5 to 2.7. It's operating system independent, so runs on Unix (including Mac OSX) and on Windows. Install it via the Python Package Index, e.g.:
pip install weblayer
To develop (or play around with) it, get the source code, either using Git:
git clone git://github.com/thruflo/weblayer.git
Or from a release tarball, e.g.:
tar -zxvf weblayer-0.4.tar.gz
Develop the egg:
python setup.py develop
Install the additional dependencies:
Run the tests:
nosetests -c etc/nose.cfg
Generate the docs:
sphinx-build -a -b html doc doc/_build
