Genshi + CherryPy + FormEncode Tutorial



Christopher Lenz (cmlenz) just wrote an excellent tutorial on Genshi because I was whining about how I couldn’t get a handle on the right way to use Genshi. While the tutorial’s primary target is Genshi, its an excellent tutorial on CherryPy and a little FormEncode as well (as well as other Python concepts like decorators).

If you have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in Python web development, Genshi’s Tutorial is an excellent place to start.

In Debian Lenny/Sid or Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon you can install the packages listed in the Prerequisites section simply by doing:

sudo apt-get install python-cherrypy3 python-formencode python-paste python-genshi
