SPYCE - Python Server Pages v1.1.45 released on 13 Oct 2002. SPYCE is a webserver plugin that supports simple and efficient Python-based dynamic HTML scripting. Those who like Python and are familiar with JSP, or PHP, or ASP, should have a look at this engine. It allows one to generate dynamic HTML content just as easily, using Python for the dynamic parts. Its modular design makes it very flexible and extensible. It supports FastCGI, CGI and mod_python to plugin into Apache and most other webservers. It can also be used as a command-line utility for HTML pre-processing or as a web server proxy. Get it at: http://spyce.sourceforge.net ---------- Dear mod_python users, Spyce works very nicely under mod_python, and it's been a while since I posted a release announcement to this list (in fact, since v1.1.22, about two months ago). Here are some of the major highlights. (The full change log is available at: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/spyce/spyce/CHANGES?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup). - refactored the spyce module infrastructure - modules accept initialization arguments - new modules and improvements: toc - table of contents transform - output filters/transformations compress - dynamic compression error - error handling stdout - added push() and pop() methods; loaded implicitly and lots of others... - more accurate/specific runtime error reporting - added server-level configuration options - spyce now also supports a proxy server mode - added spyceDone exception to stop spyce processing - rpm improvements and new windows installer - compatibility with Python 1.5.2 and up - file globbing added to -O command-line option - site and documentation revamp - live examples on sourceforge - lots of bug fixes - performance improvements If you use mod_python, and the last time you checked out Spyce was two months ago, then please go take a second look. :) http://spyce.sourceforge.net Comments, suggestions and feature requests are welcome.
