The world needs another web framework.
—No one, ever. And yet...
Minion is a microframework that grew out of a collection of individually small frustrations with Flask.
Specifically, it aims to be simpler and more composeable than Flask is in the following ways:
- Call views with arguments rather than thread locals
- Allow alternative routing implementations
- Provide a more robust configuration interface
In some ways it's inspired by Klein's take on Flask more than Flask's take on Flask.
Here's the Minion hello world:
from minion.core import Application from minion.request import Response app = Application() @app.route("/") def index(request): return Response("Hello World!")
Minion uses SemVer.
Specifically, this means that until
v1.0.0 Minion is not
guaranteed to be backwards compatible, even in minor releases (or bugfix
releases but there probably won't be any of those).
That being said, nothing will be broken for the hell of it :). Make of that what you will.
v1.0.0, public API (to be defined later) will not be broken in
backwards incompatible ways without a major version bump.
