April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class Minimal(Axon.Component.component)

A simple HTTP request handler for HTTPServer which serves files within a given directory, guessing their MIME-type from their file extension.

Arguments: -- request - the request dictionary object that spawned this component -- homedirectory - the path to prepend to paths requested -- indexfilename - if a directory is requested, this file is checked for inside it, and sent if found



Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

__init__(self, request[, indexfilename][, homedirectory])


Produce the appropriate response then terminate.


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
