Spinne is a python 3.x micro web framework. This web framework was built only by python standard libraries. Installation

You can download the project directly from this repository, run the cmd, change the directory to the folder where Spinne.py file is stored and run this command:

python.exe setup.py install


C:/PythonXX/python.exe setup.py install

Where XX is the python version.
Try both and test if Spinne is correctly installed by opening python console and typing this:

import Spinne

If it runs without any error, then you've correctly installed it, if any error occurs, please contact us with your problem through atechsmail@gmail.com. Basic Usage

Spinne is easy to use. You first create a folder where you're going to store your web app files.


app.py should include the main code of the website, the following example will be using mako template enginge, downloaded from this link.

import Spinne
from mako.template import Template
Spinne.root = './files'
Spinne.home = 'home.html'
Spinne.POST = ['/send.stmp']
def temp(tmp):
    return Template(tmp).render()
Spinne.template = temp
s = Spinne.Server('localhost', 8888)

Note: Don't use from Spinne import *.
The code is simple, you first import the Spinne module and mako template engine, then you store the root of your web app in the variable root, the home page of your website (which will show when you visit host:port/) in home and the files where the method is post in POST, then you define a function with any name you want while making one argument tmp which will be used by Spinne and put the function without () in the variable template which will also be used by Spinne. The last two lines is where you specify the host and port using the Server class then runn is using the run method. You can stop the server by clicking Ctrl-C.

home.html has been set the home page of your website in app.py, you can use basic html, css and javascript, here is an example:

<title>Home page</title>
What would you like to see?
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="/send.stmp">
<input type="radio" name="choice" value="image" required> An image<br/>
<input type="radio" name="choice" value="video" required> A video<br/>
<input type="submit" value="Choose">

This is a basic page which is showing the text 'What would you like to see?' and a form which contains two radio buttons, when you submit the form, you will go to send.smtp where your input will be used to show content.
Now you would like to use the inputs to show content on the page, you will need to write this in send.smtp:

import Spinne
i = Spinne.request.form('choice')
%if i == 'image':
    <img src="/st/image.png">
    <video width="320" height="240" controls>
    <source src="/st/movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    Your browser does not support the video tag.

This is a template, where you can write python code within html, as we mentioned before, we're using make template engine but you're free to use anyother template engine for development, you first get the input by the function request.form where you can put the name of the input you want, then according to the input (the radio button chosen), and image or a video will be shown.

Other Functions

Some other functions used in Spinne. Redirection

To redirect from one page to another, use the response.redirect function.


Query Strings

To parse query strings, use the request.query_strings function.


If the path is '/?a=b&b=c&d=e', the output will be {'a': ['b'], 'b': ['c'], 'd': ['e']}. File Input

To recieve an input as a file, use the request.file function.


The output will be a list containing two values, the first will be the filename, the second will be the file value. Cookies

To make a cookie, use the response.cookie function.

response.cookie('copyright', 'aTechs', '/', '25-Jan-2011 18:45:20 GMT', 9999999)

The last two arguments (expires and maxage) aren't required.
To get a cookie, use the request.cookie function.


To delete a cookie, use the response.delete_cookie function.



To use database with Spinne, you should download the libraries like sqlite3 and pymongo.
