Setting up Bottle - python web framework

  • I created a video on how I setup the Omega to install and run Bottle, a python web framework.

    There is another post in the forums, 'Python web framework' which shows you how to use python3. This particular setup video uses python2.

    Here is the summary of steps:

    vi /etc/opkg.conf

    — delete line ‘option check_signature 1'

    opkg update
    mkdir -p /home/bottle
    cd /home/bottle
    wget --no-check-certificate
    opkg install python-light
    opkg install python-email
    opkg install python-codecs
    opkg install python-logging
    opkg install python-openssl


    from bottle import route, run
    def hello(username):
        return "Hello {0}.  Welcome to the Omega World!".format(username)
    run(host='', port=8080, debug=True)

    to run:


  • Thanks for sharing. I think Bottle has a lot of potential on the Omega as it is quite small and easy to use.

  • @Patrick-Ryan Nice tutorial!

  • Cool, thanks for that. I was wondering if it is possible and feasible to add websocket support to this setup.

    Or might there be a way to add websocket support to the uhttp deamon. This is running the oem onion Web console AFAIK. Would it make any sense to look into making uhttp somehow support websockets and simple lua scripts?

    Or, can ubus be used to push system events into a page?
