I have been using python for web development for over an year. My web development experience is more than 7 years. I have used PERL, Java, php, asp, .net etc. Almost all of the popular tools. But Python is the best of all for rapid development and for even very large projects. But all the tools required for developing web apps in python using cgi or apache are not available in one place. Most of the tools require changes in the server , which most hosting companies dont like. The combination of tools that I have used is 1. PSO( Python Service Object) available on sourceforge.net for session handling and request specific features. 2. Cheetah also on sourceforge.net for templating. 3. MySQLdb for database access. Will require to be installed on the server, but most of the hosting services have it already installed, or will install without any problem. These tools are enough for developing 90% of the web based solutions for which php can be used. If you want better performance like mod_perl or servlets, use mod_python. Your scripts will not require many changes for conversion from cgi to mod_python. Plesk Server Solutions have supported mod_python applications for a long time. Most of the hosting companies use this software for administration. If you need specialized python hosting, do contact me.
