Poort: The quick gateway.

Release v0.3.1 (What’s new?).

Poort is a bundle of best-practices to quickly build web gateways.

A quick example:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from __future__ import absolute_import, division, print_function

from poort import Gate, Request, Response

gate = Gate()

def application(environ, start_response):
    with gate(environ):
        request = gate.request

        if request.path == '/':
            response = Response('Hallo world!')
            response = Response('Whoops, not found.', status=404)

        return response(request, start_response)


  • Gate, which provides a simple getter/setter interface for local variables.
  • Request, a very simple object containing all the information about the request.
  • Response, a versatile but simple object that can respond to the requester.


Poort is written and maintained by Nils Corver.
