What is WHIFF?

WHIFF is a collection of support services for
WSGI/Python web applications which allows applications
to be composed by "dropping" dynamic pages into
container directories. This mode of development will
be familiar to developers who have created PHP applications,
vanilla CGI scripts, Apache/modpy Publisher applications,
JSP pages, or static web content.

The WHIFF implementation significantly generalizes
the "drop in" paradigm to support WSGI middleware
components and application fragments as well as
stand-alone pages.

WHIFF provides other services in addition to
supporting "drop in" components, such as managed
application resources.

WHIFF requires Python 2.5 or better to run out-of-the-box.

Unless significant problems appear in the next
month or so I think this release will be the last beta
release and the next release will add a couple
more features to become WHIFF 1.0.

For more fun please have a look at my community
list/tree maker at http://listtree.appspot.com
which is inspired by Guido van Rossum's excellent
faqwiz. ListTree is implemented on Google App
Engine using WHIFF.

I hope you like.

    When I went there and clicked on the "scatter chart is generated by a
    straightforward invocation of the standard WHIFF OpenFlashChart
    middleware: ", Firefox *immediately* opened the 'Official' page of a
    well-known ugly cult www.sci-----logy.org in a new tab. Something is
    very, very wrong. I really hope this was not intentional on your part.

    When I load the doc page again and click the chart box again, the chart
    is reloaded from the local cache instead of your site and no tab is opened.

    That was a joke in the tree view. You clicked on the "science link"
    in the tree hierarchy. I will fix it due to your complaint.

    Nothing is very very wrong :), it was just a misguided joke
    (the bio link also goes off to someone fisherman's biography...)

    Sorry about that. Thanks for the feedback.

    Fixed. Now clicking on the same link goes to "Scientific American".

    Is that humourless enough for you? :)
    You are now immortalized in the WHIFF repository

    Please let me know if anything else offends your
    sensibilities.

    Thanks again, -- Aaron Watters

    Perhaps I was not clear enough. I am using FireFox 3.5 with Flashblock
    which blocks Flash content until one clicks twice on the space to
    explicitly open the Flash content. When I clicked on the space for your
    OpenFlashChart example, that is when the new window opended up, without
    warning, before I even saw the chart. I cannot reproduce this now
    because the chart seems to be in the local cache.

    If I had clcked on the link that is formatted as a link, that would have
    been a different matter, and I would have merely suggested a change such
    as the one you made, which I do approve of.
