Website Creation using Python

P: n/a
Afternoon,

I would like some help on how to create a website using the python
programming language.
I've tried using enamel, but had some problems because I could not
create html tables and intergrating it with python, like you use it
when coding in php.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Python is not PHP. Page generation is done differently. You might take a look
at Django's web framework:

http://www.djangoproject.com/

or

http://pylonshq.com/
WARNING - Python web frameworks are MUCH more powerful than just using PHP to
place some dynamic content on a web page. For many people, PHP will still be an
easy to implement solution if your project isn't very complex. As the
complexity grows, the need for additional power and flexibility grows also.

If you're familiar with the PHP approach and are planning on using
Apache, you might find mod_python and Python Server Pages more
accessible:

* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mod_python
* http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/python/2...ver_pages.html

There are a *lot* of web frameworks for Python (I hadn't even heard of
Enamel prior to your post) which provide varying degrees of support
and ease of use, there's a nice overview here:

* http://wiki.python.org/moin/WebFrameworks

Django does seem to be leading in terms of popularity atm. Having
developed an application in TurboGears, I can testify that having a
large user base to draw support help from can be -very- handy.

Hope this helps.
