The Grok_ development team is very happy to release Grok 1.0. Grok 1.0 is the culmination of 3 years of work after the start of the Grok project in late 2006. It presents a stable platform for developing powerful, extensible web applications. Grok is the result of years of work by the large Grok development team.
With Grok, simple projects are easy to create, but it is with increasing complexity and reuse that the Grok framework excels. Grok 1.0 is not the end of Grok development. Since Grok is extensible many powerful new features are being made available as growing collection of extension packages. The Grok development team is also working on a whole range of initiatives to improve Grok even further. The Grok documentation team is also busily working on improving Grok's extensive documentation resources. .. _Grok: http://grok.zope.org See the more extensive announcement here for more information: http://grok.zope.org/project/releases/1.0 About Grok ----------------- Grok is a modern Python-based web framework. Grok is powerful in the hands of an expert developer, as it excels in reuse and extensibility thanks to its use of a component development model. At the same time Grok aims to let less experienced developers be productive immediately, so that the walk up the learning curve is more smooth for them. Grok lets you store your Python objects easily in the battle-tested ZODB, an object database. Alternatively relational databases are supported with Grok, using the `megrok.rdb`_ extension and SQLAlchemy. .. _`megrok.rdb`: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/megrok.rdb Grok is developed in the Zope community and is built with Zope technologies. In particular, Grok builds on the `Zope Toolkit`_, a collection of libraries that make use of a common component development model, the Zope Component Architecture. The Zope community has more than a decade of experience in developing web applications with Python. The Zope Toolkit is the result of this experience, .. _`Zope Toolkit`: http://docs.zope.org/zopetoolkit/ Grok is WSGI compatible and can therefore be integrated with the wide range of WSGI-based technologies available in the Python world today. Grok technologies themselves are also available for reuse. This has enabled developers to use them in combination with the Silva and Plone CMS projects, which work with the Zope 2 application server. regards, The Grok Team _______________________________________________ Zope-Announce maillist - Zope-Announce@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce Zope-Announce for Announcements only - no discussions (Related lists - Users: https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope Developers: https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
