What is WHIFF?

WHIFF is a collection of support services for Python WSGI
applications which allows applications to be composed
by "dropping" dynamic pages into container directories.
This mode of development will be familiar to developers
who have created PHP applications, vanilla CGI scripts,
Apache/modpy Publisher applications, JSP pages, or
static web content.

The WHIFF implementation significantly generalizes the
"drop in" paradigm to support WSGI middleware components
and application fragments as well as stand-alone pages.

WHIFF provides other services in addition to supporting
"drop in" components, such as managed application

I created WHIFF to address complexity issues I
encounter when creating and fixing sophisticated
Web applications which include complex database
interactions and dynamic features such as AJAX
(Asynchronous Javascript And XML).
