Newf, A New (web) Framework for Python

Yes, another one. Why? Because I can, that's why. I started Newf when I got frustrated with the bloat of Django when it went from 0.96 to 1.0. Django is great, but not my bag anymore.

Newf strictly utilizes WSGI and makes creating a web application super-ridiculously simple. You set some urls, create some functions and you're basically done.

What doesn't it do?

Lots of things!

Newf doesn't have a templating language. Use Jinja or Cheetah or Mako or roll you own or whatever.

Newf doesn't do Sessions. We recommend using Beaker for that.

Newf doesn't have an ORM. We recommend Autumn (shocked?) or Storm or SQLObject.

How do I use it?
