I'm looking for adventurous pre-alpha testers for a DHTML (active website)
framework for Python I've developed.


 - pyWeb


 - easy to learn and use

 - compatible with Python 1.5.2 and later (thus able to run on budget
   web hosts which insist on staying with old Pythons)

 - runs purely as CGI (or fastCGI)

 - lets you build your pages with a simple, intuitive and coherent
   document object model (DOM)

 - extremely extensible, lends itself well to templating

 - not a 'code within the html text' type of DHTML framework (like Spyce).
   This one puts the emphasis on generating the HTML with python statements

 - automatic retrieval and dispatch of browser cookies

 - oersistent datastore that is stored on browser as compressed cookes.
   secured via hmac/sha1, can store 10-25k of data on browser. Accessed in
   python code by simply reading and setting attributes of an object


 - GPL
