Genshi Tutorial

This tutorial is intended to give an introduction on how to use Genshi in your web application, and present common patterns and best practices. It is aimed at developers new to Genshi as well as those who've already used Genshi, but are looking for advice or inspiration on how to improve that usage.


  1. Introduction


In this tutorial we'll create a simple Python web application based on CherryPy 3. CherryPy was chosen because it provides a convenient level of abstraction over raw CGI or WSGI development, but is less ambitious than full-stack web frameworks such as Pylons or Django, which tend to come with a preferred templating language, and often show significant bias towards that language.

The application is a stripped-down version of sites such as reddit or digg: it lets users submit links to online articles they find interesting, and then lets other users vote on those stories and post comments.
