Subject Re: python web framework suggestions (for Cassandra Web UI) needed
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 16:55:31 GMT
Well Tornado is light weight, it is it's own web server as well, so no need
to run something like apache in front of it, and is a nice light framework.
It's an eventd style process, so supports lots of connections very well,
which would give you more flexibility is designing clients to work with it.
