Essential Characteristics

Peaceful Coexistence

A TinCan webapp is a Bottle webapp. You can also do things the Bottle way… in the same webapp! Bottle-style webapps have access to the same Chameleon templating engine that TinCan uses.

No Configuration

Just make a tree of appropriately-named files, and TinCan will figure it all out. The file tree defines the routes, much like in a web server.

Header Directives Can Get You a Lot

Need to have one controller associated with multiple views? TinCan can do that! See #python in the Header Directives section.
