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.

Howdy Thushanthan,

Here is one that is hot off the press:

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.
