Grok 1.0 beta 2!

The Grok team is happy to announce the release of Grok 1.0b2. With Grok 1.0 we will deliver a stable, powerful, featureful framework for Python-based web development. Grok 1.0b2 is feature complete for Grok 1.0.


Grok 1.0b2 has the following changes compared to Grok 1.0a4:

  • grokproject layout changed again. we store the database and logfiles under the var directory in the buildout.
  • Running the server with debug.ini and the exception middleware in there won't require you to use a different login location for the admin ui. Just going to http://localhost:8080 should give you a login prompt.

This release also contains a number of bugfixes. We are continuing to fix bugs on the way to Grok 1.0.

For installation instructions and much more on how to use Grok, see the Grok tutorial:

What happened to Grok 1.0b1?

Grok 1.0b1 was released a bit prematurely and can be safely ignored.


A significant change to the project structure generated by grokproject has been created too. We recommend you upgrade your projects to the new structure (but be sure to back up important Data.fs files for important ZODBs). Please examine a project generated with the newest version of grokproject and update your project's buildout.cfg accordingly (and help us write better instructions!).

For detailed upgrade notes on this, see

We hope to hear from you!
