Python for web...


Hi everyone,

I have to develop a web based enterprise application for my final year
project. Since i am interested in open source, i searched the net.
Almost 90% of them were PHP and MySQL. Cant we use python for that ? I
tried several sites, but there is not enough tutorial for beginners
[mod_python, PSP etc]. I couldnt find any detailed book, not even a
single book :( All the python books are covering only CGI part)

Any suggestions? Any recommended book?

Execuse my English.

It's also worthwhile to note that the apress django book listed is
also accessible free online here:

You can also take a look to `webpy` and `cherrypy`. These where not yet
mentioned.

if you love to read that book online. Otherwise, if you don't have DSL,
just mirror the site for offline usage with "wget"

Use mod_python if you can.

Although mod_python is fine, I had more success using fastcgi with
Django (you can run Django as a fastcgi process). It was less
troublesome to set up and the chances your hosting provider supports
it are bigger.
