drty is a port of the most excellent Django web framework to node.js.
drty currently includes the following:
- Basic forms
- Basic models using MySQL backend
- Sessions and Auth contrib
- Django templating support (thanks to Anders Hellerup Madsen and Simon Willisons of djangode!)
It's a work in progress, so there is much yet to be done!
Installation is easy
$ npm install drty
Included in the source tree is an example/ folder that contains a simple blogging platform written using drty. To run the example, open up mysql as administrator (root), and type the following:
create database demo; grant all on demo.* to 'demo'@'localhost' identified by 'demo';
Then, go to the examples/ directory and run.
$ node manage.js syncdb $ node manage.js runserver
Now open a browser to http://localhost:8080/login/.
