Tutorial - Hello World

The most basic (working) CherryPy application possible.

# Import CherryPy global namespace
import cherrypy

class HelloWorld:
    """ Sample request handler class. """

    def index(self):
        # CherryPy will call this method for the root URI ("/") and send
        # its return value to the client. Because this is tutorial
        # lesson number 01, we'll just send something really simple.
        # How about...
        return "Hello world!"

    # Expose the index method through the web. CherryPy will never
    # publish methods that don't have the exposed attribute set to True. = True

if __name__ == '__main__':
    import os.path
    tutconf = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'tutorial.conf')
    # CherryPy always starts with app.root when trying to map request URIs
    # to objects, so we need to mount a request handler root. A request
    # to '/' will be mapped to HelloWorld().index().
    # This branch is for the test suite; you can ignore it.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
