Excellent Framework I've been using for years. I started using Pythomnic pretty much when I started coding in Python, both motivated by a project I wanted to do that required multi-threaded, distributed processing with variable loads that required consistent response times per transaction and robust uptime and failure recovery. Pythomic provides all this, and far more. I really can't imagine doing any kind of sizeable project without it, it's my default framework for starting nearly anything at this point. The luxuries of being able to transparently reload code modules in-place, auto-reload modules on configuration changes, and other features allow my system to remain up and responsive at least 99.99% - my only downtime has been a hard disk failure at one point about a year ago, and some routine maintenance and upgrades to the underlying OS. I've had to poke around in the Pythomnic source to answer a few of my questions, and it took a while to get going. The documentation is good, but sparse and frankly could use a good book as a reference guide. There's a ton to it, and learning it can be tricky. Luckily, for the past few years the author has been readily available and helpful in answering questions, so that has allowed me to progress and has helped immensely. Recently though he's not been as available, I'm hoping the project is still alive and well!
