Welcome to Tipfy!

Tipfy is a small but powerful framework designed specifically for Google App Engine. It is a lot like webapp:

from tipfy import RequestHandler, Response

class HelloWorldHandler(RequestHandler):
    def get(self):
        return Response('Hello, World!')

...but offers a lot of features (own authentication, sessions, i18n etc) and other goodies that webapp misses. Everything in a modular, lightweight way, tuned for App Engine. You use only what you need, when you need.
