How to use the CherryPy framework in Python

CherryPy is a Python web application framework that allows developers to rapidly build web applications by providing tools for handling HTTP requests, response objects, HTTP servers, and a wide range of other web-related tasks. CherryPy is designed to be easy to use, fast, and scalable.

1. Install CherryPy

The first step is to install CherryPy. To do this, open a terminal and type in:

pip install cherrypy

2. Create a CherryPy Application

The next step is to create a CherryPy application. This can be done by creating a Python file with the following code:

import cherrypy

class HelloWorld(object):
@cherrypy.expose
def index(self):
return “Hello World!”

cherrypy.quickstart(HelloWorld())

This code will create a basic “Hello World” application.

3. Run the Application

Once the application is created, it can be run by typing in the following command in the terminal:

python .py

This will start the CherryPy server and the application will be available at http://localhost:8080.
