Web application toolkit recommendation?

P: n/a
hi all:

I'm a python user in my day job. Now I want to take on a personal pet
project which will involve the creation of a website on my home
server. I'll want to keep track of users through user accounts and
logins, allow them to upload information to a database (maybe mySQL or
SqLite), and in the future allow upload of GPS tracklogs and
subsequent presentation of those tracklogs on a graphical map image).

I can do all of the above today with the Leonardo project on SF, but
it's written in PHP, in which I am a relative neophyte, though I use
it to drive my own dynamic website using a mySQL database. (see

I would like to take a stab at doing this in Python instead of PHP,
but I'd like to hear from people who are familiar with both, or who
have a good understanding of web application toolkits in Python.
Which is likely to be the least painful route?

I'm already using Snakelets for a private internet blog, and would use
this if there were a database access module available.

I don't want to hear anything about Zope - it's way too complex for my
needs or desires. Other than that, fire away!

Another Web Framework shootout:

My personal favorite is Spyce - it is straight forward and also works
in cgi mode.

I'm not familiar with Snakelets, but I would imagine you could use any
existing python database module with it.

You can also take a look at Karrigell
( You can write pure Python scripts
or use a PHP-like syntax, and it is shipped with gadfly, an SQL engine,
and with KirbyBase, a database engine which uses a Pythonic syntax. As
for all the web frameworks, you can also work with the APIs available
for almost any database under the sun
