pyramid_formalchemy provides a CRUD interface for Pyramid based on FormAlchemy. Which is to say it looks at your SQLAlchemy models and automagically generates an HTML interface to create, read, update and delete instances of those models from the database, very much like Django’s admin interface. That sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? In this post I will demonstrate how to get it up and running and then start customizing the forms.
This post will show you how to easily create interactive graphs which are simple to share.
Ian Bicking’s WebTest is a helpful module for running functional tests against a WSGI app. You may already be using it, it’s the suggested way to test Pyramid apps, TurboGears and Google App Engine, and (although I have no experience with this) you can use it with Django (apparently this is a good idea) and Flask. It’s not very complicated but in my haste to get things done I overlooked a couple of its nicest features.
