Before I buy a raspberry pi ( being honest ), I'd like to know if it is possible to run a pyramid python framework from raspberry Pi. If so, then how ?

I know LAMP runs on it but at present I am looking particularly for a python framework.

  • Web frameworks don't require anything special besides the internet, it's hard to see why it would not. – goldilocks Nov 4 '14 at 15:00

Python is the official development environment on the raspberry pi, and pyramid is a python framework, so that should work just dandy.

Though be aware that the raspberry pi is a small computer, also in terms of processing power, so if you plan to host something big or serve many clients, it might not be a good choice. As a development environment, it should be great!

  • "Python is the official development environment on the raspberry pi" -> According to whom?!?? – goldilocks Nov 4 '14 at 14:31
  • According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation: 'Does it have an official programming language? The Raspberry Pi Foundation recommends Python as a language for learners.' raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/#softwareLanguages – Bex Nov 4 '14 at 14:46

    Seems a little ambiguous but fair enough. I just would not want people to take that to mean that the foundation provides any official resources or support for such (that they don't provide for a bunch of other languages anyway, e.g. the programming forums are not python centric). So personally I'd word that officially recommended by. Anyway, splitting hairs: +1, pyramid is apparently a web framework written in python, no reason it shouldn't run on the pi. – goldilocks Nov 4 '14 at 14:56
  • Well, I do think it is a bit silly to talk about an official development environment for a linux computer, and perhaps I am over interpreting their wording. – Bex Nov 4 '14 at 15:00
