Python in the News

Making the rounds: Droopy: easy file receiving. Apparently, there were some widely-read blog posts about this. Google "Droopy: A Tiny Web Server That Makes Receiving Files a Snap" to see the buzz.

The point here is that 750 lines of Python code can go a long way. It's a complete web server to support large file transfers without the botheration of email servers and their limitations.

Elegantly, it's packaged as a single module including HTML page templates, translations into several languages, plus the core server.
