A highly Pythonic Web application framework

Quixote is yet another framework for developing Web applications in Python. The design goals were:

1) To allow easy development of Web applications where the emphasis is more on complicated programming logic than complicated templating.

2) To make the templating language as similar to Python as possible, in both syntax and semantics. The aim is to make as many of the skills and structural techniques used in writing regular Python code applicable to Web applications built using Quixote.

3) No magic. When it's not obvious what to do in a certain case, Quixote refuses to guess.

If you view a web site as a program, and web pages as subroutines, Quixote just might be the tool for you. If you view a web site as a graphic design showcase, and each web page as an individual work of art, Quixote is probably not what you're looking for.

Package version:2.5-3


To install the demo:
        # apt-get install quixote-doc

	# cp /usr/share/doc/quixote-doc/demo.{cgi,conf} /usr/lib/cgi-bin
	# chmod +x /usr/lib/cgi-bin/demo.cgi

Assuming your web server is installed, you should now be able to view the demo
at http://localhost/cgi-bin/demo.cgi .
