webapp2 is a lightweight Python web framework compatible with Google App Engine's webapp.

webapp2 is simple. it follows the simplicity of webapp, but improves it in some ways: it adds better URI routing and exception handling, a full featured response object and a more flexible dispatching mechanism.

webapp2 also offers the package webapp2_extras with several optional utilities: sessions, localization, internationalization, domain and subdomain routing, secure cookies and others.

webapp2 can also be used outside of Google App Engine, independently of the App Engine SDK.

For a complete description of how webapp2 improves webapp, see webapp2 features.
