About µWeb

We feel that python is one of the most clean and powerful languages to program with. Naturally we wanted to use Python for web-development and web related projects, but found most of the available frameworks either lacking in features or too restrictive. Based on the Python core principles set by BDFL Guido van Rossum, we decided to build µWeb for internal use at Underdark. After using it for various projects we felt is was ready to be used by others and improved with the help of a community.


We believe strongly in the core philosophy of Python itself and try to use those guidelines when developing µWeb:

  1. as little boilerplate as possible;
  2. as little Magic™ as possible;
  3. and separation by convention, not brute force.
