:mod:`deform` is a Python HTML form generation library. It runs under Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3.
The design of :mod:`deform` is heavily influenced by the formish form generation library. Some might even say it's a shameless rip-off; this would not be completely inaccurate. It differs from formish mostly in ways that make the implementation (arguably) simpler and smaller.
:mod:`deform` depends only on Peppercorn, Colander, Chameleon and an internationalization library named translationstring, so it may be used in most web frameworks (or antiframeworks) as a result.
Alternate templating languages may be used, as long as all templates are translated from the native Chameleon templates to your templating system of choice and a suitable :term:`renderer` is supplied to :mod:`deform`.
Despite the version number at the top, this documentation has not been updated for the 2.X release line of Deform. Most of the documentation will still apply, but where it does not, see the :ref:`changelog` for an overview of changes between 0.9.9 and this release. Also, please see http://deform2demo.repoze.org .
