Grok is a web application framework for Python developers. It is aimed at both beginners and very experienced web developers. Grok has an emphasis on agile development.
Grok is easy and powerful, and it offers a lot of building blocks for web application. Grok is informed by a lot of hard-earned wisdom. Grok accomplishes this by using at its core the Zope Toolkit (ZTK), an advanced object-oriented set of libraries intended for reuse by web frameworks. While Grok uses the Zope Toolkit, and benefits a lot from it, and users can get started with Grok without any special knowledge of the ZTK.
Some aspects of Grok development require more detailed knowledge of the ZTK libraries (authentication, for example) but it is the designer’s goal to make Grok a more approachable, easier to learn framework over time. Grok doesn't require users to edit cryptic configuration files. Instead you just program in Python and create HTML templates. Beyond this, Grok also offers a wide range of built-in features at users’ fingertips, from automated form generation to an object database.
This way, Grok gives users both power and quick satisfaction during development. Grok has an extensive tutorial that helps users to get started. And thanks to grokproject, anyone can create their first web app with Grok in no time. Through the ZTK, Grok offers a very wide range of building blocks for web application.
What's more, ZTK libraries and components are typically rock-solid due to extensive unit-testing and well-specified API documentation. Successful web applications aren't built for a day - such an application will need to be maintained, extended, evolved, over a period of many years. Zope developers really know this. Grok, through the ZTK, offers an architecture that enables user application to grow over time.
