June 28, 2008 § Leave a comment
Kamaelia is not yet another Rails-esque framework, thus making it more interesting.
Kamaelia is open source framework for building concurrent system. It was conceived inside BBC.co.uk r & D lab. It is written in Python, making it double interesting.
It draws its inspiration from UNIX pipeline. UNIX pipe allows chaining processes so that the output of current process goes directly to the input of the next process. The ‘pipeline’ module is called Axon.
From its documentation, Kamaelia is more like collection of components. The components comprises a lot of thing; TCP server/client, GUI builder, Audio codec, IRC client, etc…
This framework is most definitely different.
