Bottle: Python Web Framework

Bottle is a fast, simple and lightweight WSGI micro web-framework for Python. It is distributed as a single file module and has no dependencies other than the Python Standard Library.

  • Routing: Requests to function-call mapping with support for clean and dynamic URLs.
  • Templates: Fast and pythonic *built-in template engine* and support for mako, jinja2 and cheetah templates.
  • Utilities: Convenient access to form data, file uploads, cookies, headers and other HTTP-related metadata.
  • Server: Built-in HTTP development server and support for paste, fapws3, bjoern, Google App Engine, cherrypy or any other WSGI capable HTTP server.

Homepage and documentation: http://bottlepy.org

Example: "Hello World" in a bottle

from bottle import route, run, template

@route('/hello/<name>')
def index(name):
    return template('<b>Hello {{name}}</b>!', name=name)

run(host='localhost', port=8080)

Run this script or paste it into a Python console, then point your browser to http://localhost:8080/hello/world. That's it.

Download and Install

Install the latest stable release with pip install bottle, easy_install -U bottle or download bottle.py (unstable) into your project directory. There are no hard dependencies other than the Python standard library. Bottle runs with Python 2.5+ and 3.x.
