Grok **** What is grok? ============= Grok is a smashing web framework based on `Zope Toolkit`_ technology. .. _`Zope Toolkit`: http://docs.zope.org/zopetoolkit Grok uses the Component Architecture and builds on Zope concepts like content objects (models), views, and adapters. Its simplicity lies in using **convention over configuration** and **sensible defaults** when wiring components together. That means neither a configuration language like ZCML nor a lot of repetition are needed to create a web application with grok. You can find out much more about Grok at our http://grok.zope.org website. Who is grok? ============ Grok is a friendly caveman from the Stone Age. He has a big club that he hunts mammoths with. He will also use this club to smash anything he doesn't like. "ME GROK SMASH ZCML!"
