I'm excited to announce that the TurboGears2 web application stack is now available in Fedora 12, 11 and EPEL-5.
What is TurboGears2?
TurboGears 2 is the built on top of the experience of several next generation web frameworks including TurboGears 1 (of course), Django, and Rails. All of these frameworks had limitations which were frustrating in various ways, and TG2 is an answer to that frustration. We wanted something that had:
- Real multi-database support
- Horizontal data partitioning (sharding)
- Support for multiple data-exchange formats.
- Built in extensibility via standard WSGI components
Installing the TurboGears2 stack & development tools
Fedora 12Fedora 11
yum install TurboGears2 python-tg-devtoolsRed Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (with EPEL)
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install TurboGears2 python-tg-devtools
yum --enablerepo=epel-testing install TurboGears2 python-tg-devtools
Creating your first TG2 app

If you're interested in helping maintain and improve the TG2/Pylons stack within Fedora/EPEL, please let me know. We're always looking for new Python hackers to join the team. There are still a few more components that need to be packaged and reviewed (eg: chameleon.genshi), so please take a look at the TurboGears2 page on the Fedora wiki for more details..
