Tornado is a Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed. By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.

Hello, world

Here is a simple "Hello, world" example web app for Tornado:

import tornado.ioloop
import tornado.web

class MainHandler(tornado.web.RequestHandler): def get(self): self.write("Hello, world")

def make_app(): return tornado.web.Application([ (r"/", MainHandler), ])

if name == "main": app = make_app() app.listen(8888) tornado.ioloop.IOLoop.current().start()

This example does not use any of Tornado's asynchronous features; for that see this simple chat room.
