rainfall 0.8.3

Micro web framework around asyncio (ex tulip)


To start off, rainfall is a micro web framework around asyncio (ex tulip), similiar to the cyclone or tornado. Since it is asyncio based, rainfall is fully asyncronous.

The performance tests have shown that rainfall is not slower then twisted+cyclone and sometimes even faster (benchmark results will be posted later or you can test it by yourself).


As simple as:

pip install rainfall


sometimes pip for python 3 is called pip3, but you may have it with other name

Hello world

Let’s create a simple hello world app in file like this:

import asyncio
from rainfall.web import Application, HTTPHandler

class HelloHandler(HTTPHandler):
    def handle(self, request):
        return 'Hello!'

app = Application(
        r'^/$': HelloHandler(),

if __name__ == '__main__':

Now you can run it by:


And go to in browser, you should see “Hello!”
