This snippet might explain it better:
import poobrains @poobrains.app.expose('/') class Foo(poobrains.storage.Storable): blah = poobrains.storage.fields.CharField(null=True) fasel = poobrains.storage.fields.BooleanField()
These few lines of code will fold out to a complete website with administration area, exposing a paginated list of teasers of all Foo instances in the database on the frontpage ('/') and full views of Foo instances at /Foo.id (i.e. Foo instance with id 42 at '/42').
Authentication (login) is done with TLS client certificates in order to avoid problems like password re-use and to gain the security of public key cryptography.
E-mails are only sent PGP-encrypted.
The permission system is restrictive, flexible and extensible. It supports permissions assigned to groups as well as users.
There also is a nice little theming system offering things like SCSS integration, inheritance of theme resources (templates, scss files, graphics, etc) and templatable SVG (with compiled-in SCSS, too).
Sadly, poobrains isn't production-grade software yet. Currently, it's still in a pre-alpha stage:
- No documentation - Well, there's a ~1.5k word "quick"start now…
- UX slowly approaching acceptable
- a good bunch of templates still need to be written
- Good deal of housecleaning still needed for better DX
- pyreverse recursively and reliably fails analyzing poobrains. Oops. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- No tests
- No code review (though "I have a guy"™)
