MVC web framework in Python with Gevent, Jinja2, Werkzeug, SQLAlchemy


Break your app to views, controllers and models. uses Django-like templates from Jinja2.
You can add your static path in settings and all css and javascript files will be minified.
Also html templates will be minified.
In css files you can use SCSS syntax.
Controller is class inherited from class Controller and may have methods get, post, put, delete.
These methods get Request object param and return Response object.
Request and Response objects inherited from Werkzeug.
There is ORM with PostgreSQL, MySQL and SQLite based on SQLAlchemy and Elixir.
Models consist of fields(class variables inherited from Field class).
There is event dispatcher named Eventer. You can subscribe to event
or publish event.
You can also create rest interfaces to your models with RestController.
