Latest news

I have temporary (or forever) stopped developing rainfall and switched to aiohttp, which includes a nice high level web framework: http://aiohttp.readthedocs.org/en/latest/web.html

Quickstart

To start off, rainfall is a micro web framework around asyncio (ex tulip), similiar to the cyclone or tornado. Since it is asyncio based, rainfall is fully asyncronous.

Websocket support is work in progress, should be released soon.

Installation

As simple as::

pip install rainfall

.. note:: sometimes pip for python 3 is called pip3, but you may have it with other name

Hello world

Let's create a simple hello world app in example.py file like this::

import asyncio
from rainfall.web import Application, HTTPHandler


class HelloHandler(HTTPHandler):
    @asyncio.coroutine
    def handle(self, request):
        return 'Hello!'


app = Application(
    {
        r'^/$': HelloHandler(),
    },
)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run()

Now you can run it by::

python3 example.py

And go to http://127.0.0.1:8888 in browser, you should see "Hello!"
