It says on the home page that tornado only supports unix…. Have you found this not to be true?
Tornado’s only dependency is the Python standard library, so I was able to install/run it on Windows. That said, I have not developed much on Tornado, this was just a quick install as I wanted to play with it. So, there may or may not be limited functionality on Windows. Also, I primarily develop on Linux and I don’t recall if this was a smoke test to see if our Windows devs could install/use Tornado, or if I ran any sample apps. Sorry for being vague, but I really don’t recall.
I know there used to be an issue with Tornado’s use of ‘fcntl’ (this is Unix only, and I don’t know if FB has removed this dependency). Also, the prior dependency on ‘pycurl’ is now optional.
Awesome, thanks for the helpful reply! I’ll try to follow up here if I experiment further myself.

I don’t know. If you try it, let me know if it works.
