What is a Web Application Framework?
You know powerful data and metrics exist in your Riverbed infrastructure. Wouldn’t you love to view that data in a specific way, or share it with certain groups? SteelScript Application Framework is the foundation for querying, processing, and visualizing Riverbed metrics on your terms.
A web application framework is a code base of core functions used in any web application. The web application framework takes care of the basic web application functions so that developers can focus on their unique requirements and develop their web applications faster. Often a web application can be built with little or no experience.
Django is an open source web application framework written in Python. The Django web application framework has integrations with several back-end databases and a large community of developers.
