Just read Martin Aspeli’s post about his experiences using Pylons. Some people that have been around me and Alan might remember that we’ve been saying for quite some time that we need something Routes-like in ZopeLand, and also faster restarts or even hot reload.
At PyConBrasil last week there was some buzz going on about Grok. I do appreciate the efforts and I think that something like Grok might help a little bit with lowering the barrier for creating applications with Zope.
I do hope that people raise their eyes a little bit and look to frameworks like Pylons, and think about how they can integrate Routes with Grok. And to boot, if they can make a Grok application that can restart in under 2 seconds on average hardware, then I’m sold!
