A framework for WebProgramming.
=== Masthead ===
version:: 2.1.3 (''<<Date(2006-11-17T00:00:00)>>'')
licence:: OSI approved licence - open source. (See http://sourceforge.net/projects/spyce/files/spyce/ )
platforms:: Spyce should work on most platforms.
Python versions:: 2.3 or later.
=== 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.
=== 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.
=== InTheirOwnWords ===
=== 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. -- PaulBoddie
