    >>> from ajax import PyQuery as pq

You can query some wsgi app if `WebOb`_ is installed (it's not a pyquery
dependencie). IN this example the test app returns a simple input at `/` and a
submit button at `/submit`::

    >>> d = pq('<form></form>', app=input_app)
    >>> d.append(d.get('/'))
    >>> print d
    <form><input name="youyou" type="text" value=""/></form>

The app is also available in new nodes::

    >>> d.get('/').app is d.app is d('form').app

You can also request another path::

    >>> d.append(d.get('/submit'))
    >>> print d
    <form><input name="youyou" type="text" value=""/><input type="submit" value="OK"/></form>

If `Paste`_ is installed, you are able to get url directly with a `Proxy`_ app::

    >>> a = d.get('http://packages.python.org/pyquery/')
    >>> a

You can retrieve the app response::

    >>> print a.response.status
    200 OK

The response attribute is a `WebOb`_ `Response`_
