If you develop for a website and are tired of taking carpal tunnel breaks, you should give some thought to some of Python's web development frameworks. A web development framework is like a series of macros for development in Python. Usually, one types around 20-30% of the code, and the framework does the rest. Perhaps the most sophisticated and my favorite framework is TurboGears
by Kevin Dangoor. Turbo Gears is particularly helpful to web frameworks novitiates as the project's website includes a 20 minute video
of Kevin Dangoor developing a Wiki. Yes, he shows you how to develop a wiki in 20 minutes!
Other frameworks worth considering are Django
, and CherryPy
. If you would like to find other resources for using Python to create HTML documents automagically, process CGI data, or even write PHP code on the fly, be sure to visit the web development section of this site
