What is Tornado ?
Tornado is A powerful Python Web framework used to build Facebook’s FriendFeed service, currently open sourced and available for everyone to use .
In the beginning Facebook was built using PHP and MySQL, but as the traffic and size of the network increased, so did its requirements for a better and faster delivery of content in real-time.This led the Facebook team to delve into other technologies and languages outside PHP, and the company soon turned it sights to Python, a programming language used by Google to build its search engine.The efforts of the team resulted into a product called Tornado, a Python framework specifically designed to work with raw HTTP connections in a simple asynchronous non-blocking way.Tornado was inspired by other tools like Web.py and Google’s webapp, but also includes extra features as well.At the center of the entire framework resides a powerful HTTP server, which is enhanced by a suite of modules for dealing with i18n content, string manipulation, output generation, asynchronous operations, third-party code, logs, and so on.Besides Cassandra, Tornado is one of Facebook’s most successful open sourced applications to date.
