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
$ easy_install -U tornado
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.
Same principle as Comet Chat but uses the WebSocketHandler to handle client requests.
To get each example up and running, cd to the example directory and execute the application.py module
$ python application.py
With the application started go to http://localhost:8000 in a browser to view.
