Divmod Nevow is a web application construction kit written in Python. It is designed to allow the programmer to express as much of the view logic as desired in Python, and includes a pure Python XML expression syntax named stan to facilitate this. However it also provides rich support for designer-edited templates, using a very small XML attribute language to provide bi-directional template manipulation capability.
Athena abstracts the intricacies of HTTP communication, session security, and browser-specific bugs behind a simple remote-method-call interface, where individual widgets or fragments can call remote methods on their client or server peer with one method: "callRemote". Before installing Nevow, users should install Twisted, unless they are going to write very simple CGI applications.
Nevow integrates fully with the twisted.web server providing easy deployment. Nevow uses the standard distutils method of installation: If a user has no Twisted installed, they can run a subset of the tests using the test.py script. If they have twisted installed, the test.py script will issue the following trial command: More detailed introductory documentation is available in the doc/ directory, along with the beginnings of a reference manual.
A large number of examples are available in the examples/ directory. These examples require Twisted to run. A tac file (twisted application configuration) can be started by invoking twistd, the twisted daemon.
