    55== Big Fat Warning ==

    7 The name ''diva'' was chosen for its negative connotation. Says [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diva#Negative_connotation Wikipedia]:
     7The name ''Diva'' was chosen as an homage to [http://www.flickr.com/photos/doesrails/128015501/in/pool-canadaonrails/ DHH] and for its negative connotation. Says [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diva#Negative_connotation Wikipedia]:
    88
    99> The term is often used with a negative connotation. This derives from the implication that a star who is a "diva" is arrogant, difficult to work with, high-maintenance, manipulative, fussy, highly strung, privileged and demanding. He or she does not believe the law and accepted rules of courtesy apply to him or her.

    11 So: '''You probably don't want to be using this'''. It's a sandbox where I play with various ideas for modern web application development. Specifically, it doesn't make it easy to use a different template engine, it doesn't help you connect to a relational database (or any kind of database, for that matter), it doesn't provide an automatic admin interface or even scaffolding, it doesn't have fancy reusable widgets, and so on. And it's probably never going to do or have those things.

    1313So why am I releasing this code in the first place? Because I don't like keeping spare time code to myself, and because it might serve as inspiration for others, or something like that.

    15 If you're looking for a lightweight and well-designed web application toolkit for Python that doesn't have such a big fat warning, I'd recommend taking a good look at [http://werkzeug.pocoo.org/ Werkzeug].
