web2py is a free, open-source web framework for agile development of
secure database-driven web applications; it is written in Python and
programmable in Python. Web2py is a full-stack framework, meaning that
it contains all the components you need to build fully functional web
applications. Web2py was inspired by Ruby on Rails and Django, and
follows a Model View Controller design.
This package includes an example site, an internal web server and the
administration tools to develop web sites with web2py.
