First Public Release of New Python Web Development Framework


Monday, August 7, 2006; 02:31 AM

A new Python-based development framework, called Clever Harold, has been released as v.0.1 and is now freely available for download and testing.  The team behind Clever Harold describes it as "an ambitious web development framework [with] many features for rapid, reusable, and reliable web application construction."

Harold is based on the Python Web Server Gateway Interface (WSGI), which means that when building an application, the developers pick and choose the servers and components that fit their needs. WSGI is an interface between web servers and Python web applications or frameworks, enabling web application portability across a variety of web servers.  When using Clever Harold, the developer selects the web server and the components he needs, and the framework uses a single configuration file that defines the URLs and components of the new application.

The creators of Clever Harold said it provides tools for rapid application development. It provides everything programmers to start building an application: user interface, data models, and a place to write code.  Harold includes features like publishing components, compatibility with a number of databases, and useful user interface.

The project's website (built with Clever Harold) at provides documentation and downloads.
