Subject Re: python web framework suggestions (for Cassandra Web UI) needed
Date Wed, 14 Apr 2010 14:38:54 GMT
Well, there's almost a week since the first message in this thread!

Arriving some conclusion, I think I'm going with Pylons for the UI.

Asynchronous behaviours (if needed) can be achieved with some
integration with another server like Tornado. There's even some
experiments of asynchronous modules in Pylons with Cogen or a WSGI
asynchronous framework.

Hopefully, the communication modules (between the UI and the APIs)
would be encapsulated enough to be independent from the UI

Thanks to all of you for your opinions!
