-== Welcome ==
+== WebHelpers Home ==
-Welcome to your wiki! This is the default page we've installed for your convenience. Go ahead and edit it.
+Web Helpers is a library of helper functions intended to make writing 
+web applications easier. It's the standard function library for
+[[|Pylons]] and [[|TurboGears 2]] but can be used with any framework.  It
+also contains a large number of functions not specific to the web, including
+text processing, number formatting, date calculations, container objects, etc.
-=== Wiki features ===
+[[|Online documentation]] is hosted at the Pylons site, or see the docstrings in the source code which are identical.
-This wiki uses the [[|Creole]] syntax, and is fully compatible with the 1.0 specification.
+Questions or
+feedback about WebHelpers can be submitted to the `pylons-discuss
+[[|pylons-discuss]] mailing list. 
-The wiki itself is actually a hg repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to us. It will be live immediately.
-Go ahead and try:
-$ hg clone
-Wiki pages are normal files, with the .wiki extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.
-=== Syntax highlighting ===
-You can also highlight snippets of text, we use the excellent [[|Pygments]] library.
-Here's an example of some Python code:
-def wiki_rocks(text):
-	formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
-	return formatter(text)
-You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark [[|the vast library of Pygment lexers]], we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.
-Have fun!
+WebHelpers does not have any dependencies, but certain helpers depend on Python packages as described in the helpers' docstrings.
