Buyasta; an ancient Persian demon of laziness who tries to prevent people from working. He is one of the Daevas. (Encyclopedia Mythica)

Buyasta is also (yet another) MUD engine written in Python. The primary goal of this project is to provide a simple-to-use framework for constructing MUDs. Consequently, the Core library implements the bare functionality required for every multi-user environment (i.e. an engine, base objects, rooms, etc). Why such minimalism? In my opinion, engineering something as complex as a virtual world should be a bottom up process. More often than not, implementors end up striping away most of a MUD distribution before proceeding on with actual development. With Buyasta Core, you won't have to. Just build on top of it.

Since Buyasta is more of a framework/library, a secondary goal (not secondary in priority though!) is to produce thorough API documentation and tutorials. We strive to make documentation a first class citizen of this project!

. . . Of course, I wouldn't be working on this if I didn't have my own delusions of grandeur - and my extensions to the core are also included in the source package.
