[Twisted-Python] Subclassing Resource, problems accessing persistent data/using registry

If what you're looking to do is make site-wide templates for your pages,
subclassing Resource may be overkill.  twisted.web.woven provides a very
flexible, powerful way of generating web pages.

Glance through the Woven HOWTOs on the Twisted site.  Of particular help to
me was PicturePile, a step-by-step example of a basic Woven application

I use Woven to generate my own site, and while my code is nowhere near being
finished (or even worth making public), it works.  My experience is that,
given a bit of patience and a willingness to ask for help [try #twisted],
you can get a lot done.

(I make heavy use of woven.widgets.ExpandMacro, which is not mentioned in
the online docs [as far as I can tell].  You may find it useful also.)
