Install

Pants can be installed using pip:

pip install pants

You can also grab the latest code from the git repository:

git clone git://github.com/ecdavis/pants

Pants requires Python 2.7 - Python 3 is not yet supported.

Examples

Here's an absurdly simple example - an echo server:

from pants import Engine, Server, Stream

class Echo(Stream):
    def on_read(self, data):
        self.write(data)

Server(Echo).listen(4040)
Engine.instance().start()

Want a stupidly fast web server? Got you covered:

from pants.web import Application

app = Application()

@app.route('/')
def hello(request):
    return "Hello, World!"

app.run()
