    Announce: PythonOnWheels (PoW)


    Hi everybody,

    I am announcing PythonOnWheels. (short PoW)

    Projectname: PythonOnWheels
    Motto: We are only on wheels but it feels like having wings

    What it is: A quick and easy to use generative Web framework for python.

    STOP: I know what you are thinking: " What the world doesn't need are more
    lawyers and python web frameworks"

    And you are right. But I am announcing this mostly to get feedback from
    the community. Any really feedback is welcome.

    Some years ago I saw a screencast about ruby on rails and that really blew my
    mind. I Searched something equivalant for python but found only micro or mega
    frameworks.
    So I think there is even some space for PoW besides the fun I had and have developing it

    The idea: is to make the developer focus on his/her App instead of the framework.
