Auto Application

Other languages : fran├žais | ...

The auto application acts like the basic application, only it doesn't require a URL mapping to be created. The mapping is derived from the class names (using metaclasses). In it's most basic form:

Example code

 app = web.auto_application() 

 class hello(app.page): 
     def GET(self): 
         return "hello, world!"

 if __name__ == '__main__':
     app.run() # goto http://hostname:8080/hello

You can also override the default path (which is the name of the class) by setting a class variable "path". See below:

More Example code

app = web.auto_application() 

class hello(app.page): 
    path = "/foobar"
    def GET(self): 
        return "hello, world!" 

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run() # goto http://hostname:8080/foobar
