Firenado is a python web framework based on Tornado web framework/server.




Firenado is a web framework that extends the original Tornado Web framework adding new features like loose couple components, server side session layer, yaml based configuration files and more.


pip install firenado


Creating and running a new application:

> firenado project init helloworld
> helloworld
> firenado app run

By default an application will be created with a redis based session and a redis data source defied and linked to the session.

Firenado don’t install redispy so it is necessary to either install it or turn the session as file based. You can disable the session engine too.

To change the session type to file go to helloworld/conf/firenado.yml and change the session definition to:

# Session types could be:
# file or redis.
  type: file
  enabled: true
  # Redis session handler configuration
  #  source: session
  # File session handler related configuration
  path: /tmp

If your helloworld project isn’t on the python path just go helloworld/conf/firenado.yml and configure the application settings:

  component: helloworld
        # Set here references from sources defined on data.sources
        - session
  pythonpath: ..
  port: 8888
