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