pyerweb: an absurdly small Python web-framework

Currently pyerweb is basically a simple routing system, which allows you to do the following:

from pyerweb import GET, runner

def view(key):
    return "Viewing %s" % (key)

This maps /view/anything to calling view() with an argument of "anything"

You simply decorate a function with @GET, @PUT @POST or @DELETE, the argument is a regular expression (in a string), for example:


..will match a POST request to /1 or /44532

Groups in the regular expression will be passed to the decorated function as arguments, for example:

def view(the_number):

..will grab the supplied number as the_number argument

The runner function is the WSGI compatible runner. For example, using "spawning" you can simply run:

spawn myscript.runner

Or, to use pyerweb as a CGI script (also works for the Google App Engine):

import wsgiref.handlers
from pyerweb import GET, runner

def view(key):
    return "Viewing %s" % (key)
