Torext is an utilities bundle for tornado, aimed at easy development & deployment of tornado application.
Tornado is a great library, but sometimes I found it not that convenient to use, for example,
I have to manually import handlers for Application initialization while there are more than one modules
that hold request handlers, I have to write
define('myoption') for a lot of lines, they are unsightly and inconvenient to manipulate.
Each time I encounter those problems, my developing process is disturbed, I have to either consult the code
I wrote in old project, or type lengthy repetitive code. Tornado is elegant, so I think developing with tornado
should also be elegant.
That's what torext is created for, it contains features that most web frameworks commonly have:
- database integration and models
- url routing
- validator for request arguments and everything
- error handling dispatch
- project scaffold
- invoke settings from file
- unit testing
