Infogami is a wiki application framework built on

Actual applications mcitp / [|mcsd] are written by extending Infogami through two layers: plugins and templates.

Plugins are Python mcse / mcitp modules that get loaded into Infogami through a special API. They are invoked by submitting HTTP requests to the application, mcse / mcsa either HTML form posts or direct GET requests.

Plugins can use any library or application code that they wish, and they create Python objects to represent results, that then mcts / mcpd get expanded to HTML by templates.

Templates are a mixture of HTML text and user-written code, approximately in the spirit of PHP templates.

The user-written code is in a special-purpose mcsa / mcts scripting language that is approximately a Python subset, which runs in a hopefully-secure server-side interpreter (embedded in the Python app) that has limited access to system functions mcsd / mcpd and resources.
