Python Web S1E1 : Cherrypy – HelloWorld

Rating : No ratings yet.


Cherrypy is an object oriented web framework that is quite clean and minimalistic. This is makes it easy to pick up. The best thing about it is that it allows you build your web applications in the same way you would build any of your application when using the Object Oriented Paradigm. With this framework you write smaller source code to get things done.
We are going to cover alot of tutorials about Cherrypy. This is our first, hello world application. It's mainly to do with installation and writing our first hello world app that routes functions to differnt urls to output basic html.
Cherypy doesn't require any special requirements for it to be installed or run. It can run anywhere python can run:

Install it using any of the following commands:

$ easy_install cherrypy
$ pip install cherrypy


You can also get it from github:

$ git clone
$ cd cherrypy
$ python install
