circuits is a Lightweight Event driven and Asynchronous Application Framework for the Python Programming Language with a strong Component Architecture.
circuits also includes a lightweight, high performance and scalable HTTP/WSGI web server as well as various I/O and Networking components.
To take full advantage of circuits and its architecture, circuits requires that your application be designed in terms of components and their interactions (events) with each other. An application written using the circuits application framework is maintainable, scalable and easy to develop.
The circuits framework has a certain elegance making it a rather attracting feature. New features are built into the framework with this in mind and circuits "eats its own dog food" by having a feature-rich library of components built atop the core components.
