About The Pylons Framework

Pylons 1.0 is a lightweight web framework emphasizing flexibility and rapid development.

Pylons combines the very best ideas from the worlds of Ruby, Python and Perl, providing a structured but extremely flexible Python web framework. It's also one of the first projects to leverage the emerging WSGI standard, which allows extensive re-use and flexibility — but only if you need it. Out of the box, Pylons aims to make web development fast, flexible and easy.

The Pylons web framework 1.x line will continue to be maintained alongside Pyramid as a subproject of the Pylons Project, though not enhanced. We will provide a package that allows Pylons 1.x applications and Pyramid applications to run in the same interpreter. The future of Pylon-style web application development is Pyramid.
