Cappuccino X Tornado

by Elias Klughammer

Introduction

This is a demo application for bringing together the Cappuccino Framework (http://www.cappuccino.org) and the Tornado Web server. (http://www.tornadoweb.org)

In opposite to my Cappuccino X Juggernaut implementation there is no flash needed now. The tornado web server is a lightweight well-scaling non-blocking webserver with the ability for pushing data through http-connections. For the record: Tornado is the technology behind FriendFeed.

Here you can see a demonstration of the sample app: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MPTxS9uyT4
