Welcome to the GitHub repository of

CherryPy 
_!

CherryPy is a pythonic, object-oriented HTTP framework.

  1. It allows building web applications in much the same way one would build any other object-oriented program.
  2. This design results in less and more readable code being developed faster. It's all just properties and methods.
  3. It is now more than ten years old and has proven fast and very stable.
  4. It is being used in production by many sites, from the simplest to the most demanding.
  5. And perhaps most importantly, it is fun to work with :-)

Here's how easy it is to write "Hello World" in CherryPy:

.. code:: python

import cherrypy

class HelloWorld(object): @cherrypy.expose def index(self): return "Hello World!"

cherrypy.quickstart(HelloWorld())

And it continues to work that intuitively when systems grow, allowing for the Python object model to be dynamically presented as a web site and/or API.

While CherryPy is one of the easiest and most intuitive frameworks out there, the prerequisite for understanding the

CherryPy
documentation 
_ is that you have a general understanding of Python and web development. Additionally:
  • Tutorials are included in the repository: https://github.com/cherrypy/cherrypy/tree/master/cherrypy/tutorial
  • A general wiki at: https://github.com/cherrypy/cherrypy/wiki

If the docs are insufficient to address your needs, the CherryPy community has several

avenues for support
_.

For Enterprise

CherryPy is available as part of the Tidelift Subscription.

The CherryPy maintainers and the maintainers of thousands of other packages are working with Tidelift to deliver one enterprise subscription that covers all of the open source you use.
