=== Licence ===

OSI approved licence - open source. (See http://spyce.sourceforge.net/download.html.)

=== Deployment Platforms ===

    * Integrated with Apache using mod_python or with any Web server using CGI.
    * With CGI, the lifespan of a program is determined by the Web server, but mod_python should provide long-lived processes.

=== Operating Systems ===

Spyce should work on most platforms.

=== Suitability ===

The deployment of applications using CGI is usually permitted in all but the most restrictive hosting environments. The use of mod_python may be more appropriate to in-house deployments or more comprehensive hosting environments.

=== Development Interfaces ===

    * Python code inside HTML documents - comparable to ASP, JSP and PHP.
    * Spyce modules can be written in Python to provide extra functionality.

=== Environment Access ===

    * Access to resources is primarily done using the Python module system and other general environment access techniques.

=== Session, Identification and Authentication ===

    * Support for sessions which identify users is included, currently only with filesystem support for stored session information, although SQL-based storage seems to be planned.
    * No explicit authentication support seems to be included.

=== Persistence Support ===

    * Apart from session information, no persistence mechanisms are included.

=== Presentation Support ===

    * The embedded Python code concept gives a certain flexibility in presentation.
    * The Cheetah templating system is explicitly supported through a Spyce module.

Other presentation systems could presumably be used instead, given the ability to use other Python modules in the framework.

=== Comments ===

Spyce addresses many areas of interest to Web application developers within a widely-known *SP paradigm: sessions, pooled objects, templating, and so on. Some novel features are also supported: automatons, for example, which attempt to encapsulate multi-stage transactions (or "application flows" as the documentation calls them). However, by design, Spyce does not attempt to provide everything - it aims to do dynamic Web content generation well and integrate with other things easily (see http://spyce.sourceforge.net/wishlist.html). Moreover, it can also be used as a standalone processing tool completely outside a Web application environment.
