Aspen

A Python web framework that makes the most of the filesystem.
Simplates are the main attraction.

Your Page

Aspen maps your URLs directly to the filesystem. It’s way simpler than regular expression routing or object traversal. Capture path parts with virtual paths.

Your Simplate

On the filesystem you have a simplate. This is one file with three pages: import, request, and template.

Your Library

Mature projects keep functionality in object-oriented, tested, documented libraries. Of course, you have the full power and depth of Python as well.
