Grok - A Smashing Web Framework


What is Grok?

Grok is a web application framework for Python developers. It is aimed at both beginners and very experienced web developers. Grok has an emphasis on agile development. Grok is easy and powerful.

You will likely have heard about many different web frameworks for Python as well as other languages. Why should you consider Grok?

  • Grok offers a lot of building blocks for your web application.
  • Grok is informed by a lot of hard-earned wisdom.

Grok accomplishes this by using at its core the Zope Toolkit (ZTK), an advanced object-oriented set of libraries intended for reuse by web frameworks. While Grok uses the Zope Toolkit, and benefits a lot from it, you can get started with Grok without any special knowledge of the ZTK.
