def __init__(self, path, registry=None): (source)
def render(self, request): (source)

Render a given resource. See IResource's render method.

I delegate to methods of self with the form 'render_METHOD' where METHOD is the HTTP that was used to make the request. Examples: render_GET, render_HEAD, render_POST, and so on. Generally you should implement those methods instead of overriding this one.

render_METHOD methods are expected to return a string which will be the rendered page, unless the return value is twisted.web.server.NOT_DONE_YET, in which case it is this class's responsibility to write the results to request.write(data), then call request.finish().

Old code that overrides render() directly is likewise expected to return a string or NOT_DONE_YET.
def getChildWithDefault(self, path, request): (source)

Retrieve a static or dynamically generated child resource from me.

First checks if a resource was added manually by putChild, and then call getChild to check for dynamic resources. Only override if you want to affect behaviour of all child lookups, rather than just dynamic ones.

This will check to see if I have a pre-registered child resource of the given name, and call getChild if I do not.
