What is Python-BRisa

====================


Python-BRisa is an UPnP framework written in Python with facilities for building
UPnP devices, services and control points. 

The Python-BRisa API comprehends internet messaging protocols and basic services
(TCP, UDP, HTTP, SOAP, SSDP), networking facilities, threading management, logging,
configurations, web server and more.

Python-BRisa's runs on the maemo platform, Linux and on Mac with a few tweaks.
We would really appreciate community feedback, bug reports and feature requests
concerning attempts to run it on other systems.
