Tornado Web Examples

This is a collection of apps that demonstrate Tornado Web. It is a code playground for myself and anyone else interested in testing what Tornado can do.


To install Tornado, simply download or install via the pip command;

$ pip install tornado

or easy_install

$ easy_install -U tornado

Comet Chat

An in memory chat application that uses the long polling (aka comet) technique on top of Tornado's asynchronous request functionality to demonstrate a simple chat application.

Socket Chat

Same principle as Comet Chat but uses the WebSocketHandler to handle client requests.

Quick Start

To get each example up and running, cd to the example directory and execute the module

$ python

With the application started go to http://localhost:8000 in a browser to view.
