branch: master

README.rst

weblayer is a Python package, built on WebOb, that provides a set of components that can be used to handle requests within a WSGI application.

It is not a framework. In contrast, weblayer tries to prescribe as little as possible, allowing you to swap out components and work with your weapons of choice.

It's fast, tested and documented. The source code is public domain.

Install

weblayer requires Python version 2.5 to 2.7. It's operating system independent, so runs on Unix (including Mac OSX) and on Windows. Install it via the Python Package Index using Setuptools:

easy_install weblayer

Develop

To develop (or play around with) it, get the source code using Git:

git clone git://github.com/thruflo/weblayer.git
cd weblayer

Develop the egg:

python setup.py develop

Install the additional dependencies:

easy_install weblayer[dev]

Run the tests:

nosetests -c etc/nose.cfg

Generate the docs:

sphinx-build -a -b html doc doc/_build
