Pyramid – Python Microframework – Goldilocks Solution

Pyramid is a web microframework for Python 2 and 3. It makes real-world web application development and deployment more fun, more predictable, and more productive.

Features include:

  • Fast in operation.
  • Function Decorators.
  • Predicates – tests which returns True or False. Two different types of predicates exist in Pyramid: a view predicate and a route predicate. View predicates are attached to view configuration and route predicates are attached to route configuration.
  • Renderers – a serializer which converts non-Response return values from a view into a string, and ultimately into a response, usually through view configuration.
  • Asset Specifications – a colon-delimited identifier for an asset. The colon separates a Python package name from a package subpath. For example, the asset specification my.package:static/baz.css identifies the file named baz.css in the static subdirectory of the my.package Python package.
  • Events and Subscribers – use events to coordinate actions.
  • Configure applications with decorators – keep your configuration right next to your code.
  • Build single-file applications which makes deployment easier.
  • Use multiple templating systems, even in the same project.
  • Provides flexible, consistent, easy to use tools for generating URLs.
  • Flexible tools for serving JavaScript, CSS, images and other static assets.
  • Automatically detect changes you make to template files and code, so your changes are immediately available in your browse.
  • Add-ons extend the core of the framework with extra functionality.
  • Static assets are located using asset specifications, strings that contain reference both to a Python package name and a file or directory name.
  • Built-in support for HTTP sessions, so you can associate data with specific users between requests. Plug in your own custom sessioning system.
  • Internationalization-related features in its core: localization, pluralization, and creating message catalogues from source files and templates.
  • Easy way to cache the results of slow or expensive views
  • Fully compatible with Python 3.
  • Good documentation is available.
