CL-Trane is a loose collection of utilities that together form a Web
application development framework.  Project's aim is to provide a
comprehensive, yet simple and magic-free Common Lisp framework for
easy creation of RESTful Web applications.

CL-Trane is built upon Hunchentoot (http://weitz.de/hunchentoot/) Web
server, and Postmodern (http://common-lisp.net/project/postmodern/)
interface to PostgreSQL (http://www.postgresql.org/) database.
Py-configparser (http://common-lisp.net/project/py-configparser/) is
used for configuration.

Direct dependencies include also Puri (http://puri.b9.com/), and
Iterate (http://common-lisp.net/project/iterate/), used internally for
looping.  Trane-BB module uses also Meta-sexp
(http://www.cliki.net/meta-sexp), and Trane-Taxonomy uses cl-store
(http://common-lisp.net/project/cl-store/).  Indirect dependencies are
not mentioned; full dependency graph is included in doc/ subdirectory.
Because of number of dependencies, it is recommended to use
CL-Librarian (http://common-lisp.net/project/cl-librarian) for
managing required libraries.
