Apper (name temporary) is a Python WSGI mini-framework designed for quick development with minimal magic.

The primary encapsulation unit is a Python module: Create functions using the provided dectorators in a module, then create an Apper instance, passing it a dictionary of the form path_prefix -> module.

Apper's only dependency is WebOb, and can be installed with pip install webob.

def hello_world(req, resp):
    return hello_name(req, resp, "world")

app = Apper({
    '/hello': hello

Serve app with your favorite WSGI server, then go to /hello/insert_name_here for a pleasant greeting.
