is Pylons alive?

P: n/a
Hello,
I don't want to be impolite, just in short: I am thinking about leaving
RoR and coming back to Python. I've missed the last two years in Python,
however I have been subscribed to this list and there are not too many
e-mails about Pylons in my mailbox.

On my Gentoo the latest Pylons ebuild has date "jul 2007" or something
like last summer. It has testing keywords both for x86 and amd64. (No
stable version available). It's available on my debian "testing" desktop.

Before spending much time for investigating, I would like to ask you: is
Pylons the framework I look for if I want to come back to Python and
develop MVC web apps?

Why don't you take a look at the Pylons mailing list instead?

Of course I don't know if Pylons is the best tool for you. It is
definitely alive and kicking. Anyway, I'm pretty sure there's no way
around trying it out for yourself. It should only take a few hours to
see if you're comfortable with it.

Other alternatives:
- Django
- TurboGears 2.0 (I personally wouldn't bother with TurboGears 1.x at
this point)
- Build your own based on WSGI components, mix and match WSGI server,
ORM, template engine - this is not so stupid as it may sound

HTH,

Latest commit is dated 2008-04-06, so I suppose it's alive, just no
release was done in last time.

In article <66*************@mid.uni-berlin.de>,
Gerhard Häring <gh@ghaering.dewrote:
- TurboGears 2.0 (I personally wouldn't bother with TurboGears 1.x at
this point)
Having investigated some of this myself recently, I agree with you that
the TG 1.x series is a dead end, but there's no TG 2.0 yet. Last time I
checked the developers hoped to have an alpha release at the end of
March.

Why not play with Django and the Google App Engine that everyone is
raving about:

Zope is also becoming a realistic choice now that it's getting easier
through Grok...
