IntroductionΒΆ

The main goal for this project is to provide a simple development framework that handles the main problems any web application or site encounters. It will help you adhere to the DRY (Don’t repeat yourself) principle.

Keep in mind that it it possible to develop directly on Flask/Jinja2 for custom pages or flows, that painlessly integrate with the framework.

This framework goes further than an admin scaffolding package. It has builtin presentation and behaviour alternatives, and you can easily build your own. It’s highly configurable, and ships with extra goodies.

It’s intended to lower errors, bugs and project’s time to deliver.
