Development webserver for CakePHP framework.

cakephp-instaweb is a tiny Python-based webserver suitable for quick development of CakePHP applications, similar to Django's 'runserver' and the 'script/server' script in Ruby on Rails.

It requires zero configuration for running CakePHP applications, allowing you to:

cakephp-instaweb can optionally emulate enough of Apache's mod_rewrite such that "pretty" URLs are available.


If you are using Debian GNU/Linux, this software is available in the cakephp-instaweb package. Alternatively, you can browse the source tree, create or file bugs or download the code from Git:

$ git clone

cakephp-instaweb is released under the MIT license.
