Luban ( is a python package for building (web) user interface. 

* Dynamic, ajax-based web user interface can be created using pure python (no knowledge of javascript/ajax/etc is required)
* A set of basic and advanced widgets. For example:
 - document
 - form
 - accordion
 - newsticker
 - a lot more --- see demo and API of widgets at
* Multiple user interfaces (web, native) from one source code (the native UI renderer is still experimental)

Examples of web applications built by using luban:
* vnf ( Virtual neutron facility: A web portal of neutron scattering data analysis and simulation tools
* aokuang ( A demo of luban API
