Can you draw your development?
Can you view the behaviour of your application in real time?
With this framework you can!.
GinsFSM is a python library to develop systems based in finite-state machines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finite-state_machine). This model is really useful when writing networking and communication applications.
The idea is very simple:
- All objects, called gobj, are instances of a derived ginsfsm.gobj.GObj class.
- The GObj has an inside simple-machine that defines its behavior.
- The communication between gobj's happens via event's.
Thus, the nature of this system is fully asynchronous and event-driven.
The interface is simple and common to all objects; you just have to change the name of the event and the data they carry.
It includes a full asynchronous http server and wsgi server.
You can run multiple wsgi applications.
Ginsfsm comes with a variety of scaffolds that you can use to generate a project.
Like Pyramid framework pcreate/pserve commands, Ginsfsm provides the gcreate/gserve commands, to create and run ginsfsm projects.
With gcreate command you can create a ginsfsm project. For example, with multi_pyramid_wsgi scaffold, you will create a multiple wsgi application project, one of wsgi application being a Pyramid wsgi application.
The GObj's objects are Pyramid "location-aware" resources. Also, the gobj's are a hierarchical tree, also therefore the use of traversal dispatching are all natural.
And a new feature is that the views and resources are defined in the same file. If you want of course!
