Python Web Framework made from merger of PyLons and BFG (Repose Bfg). Or, rather, it is BFG, and PyLons is merging into it, or something.

The Pyramid authors believe that the MVC pattern just doesn’t really fit the web very well. In a Pyramid application, there is a resource tree, which represents the site structure, and views, which tend to present the data stored in the resource tree and a user-defined “domain model”. However, no facility provided by the framework actually necessarily maps to the concept of a “controller” or “model”. So if you had to give it some acronym, I guess you’d say Pyramid is actually an “RV” framework rather than an “MVC” framework. “MVC”, however, is close enough as a general classification moniker for purposes of comparison with other web frameworks.
