Tropofy is an innovative web deployment platform for problem solvers. It uses a python framework to enable the deployment of apps to the cloud without the need for any web development knowledge or experience. The problem solving core of a Tropofy app can be implemented in any language and run on any platform.
Your first app is simple
from sqlalchemy import Column, Text, Float from tropofy.database.tropofy_orm import DataSetMixin from tropofy.app.application import AppWithDataSets, Step, StepGroup from tropofy.widgets import SimpleGrid class MyLocation(DataSetMixin): name = Column(Text) latitude = Column(Float) longitude = Column(Float) class MyFirstApp(AppWithDataSets): def get_name(self): return "My First App" def get_gui(self): return [StepGroup(steps=[Step(widgets=[SimpleGrid(MyLocation)])])]
And easy to setup
# From within your Tropofy directory $ tropofy_quickstart tropofy_hello_world $ cd tropofy_hello_world $ nano run.py # Insert your keys $ python run.py

How It Works
An app running on the Tropofy Platform uses the Tropofy Framework to enable communication between the Tropofy Server and a Tropofy Compute Node to create a web application. The Tropofy Server and the Tropofy Compute Node run on two different servers.
The Tropofy Framework is an object oriented python package that wraps up your solution and enables you to plug it into the Tropofy Platform to create a web app without the need for any web development knowledge or experience.
The problem solving core of your Tropofy app can be implemented in any language and run on any platform.

Constructs the GUI for the end user
Manages sign up
Takes care of recurring billing
Lives in the cloud
A Tropofy Compute Node
Hosts your IP implemented in your preferred language
Runs your chosen OS

Free for Academic Use
Access to the Tropofy Platform for academic purposes is free, simply email us at email@example.com letting us know which academic institution you belong to, to request a developer key.
A Company License provides an entire organisation access to the Tropofy platorm. It typically consists of an initial license fee and an annual support fee proportional to the number of developers and the level of technical support required.
You can choose to host the apps you build on a server you commission and manage, or elect to have Tropofy host your apps for you. Tropofy's Hosting fees are a function of the computing resources your app consumes.
