It’s comforting to know that I’m not alone when it comes to tearing my hair out with web frameworks.
In a recent posting by Guido van Rossum the author of the Python programming language titled Please Teach me Web Frameworks for Python it would appear that I am in good company. The last time I looked there were 85 replies and another posting by Guido discussing his initial feelings and thoughts on all the responses he’s had so far has had another 16. All in all they make for an interesting read.
We are all apparently scratching the same itch looking for just the right mix of framework and library code that will make Web App development suck less.
From the responses to Guido’s article I started looking at Pylons which looks promising. At least it didn’t take too long to install and get it running. So I’ll spend the next couple of days fiddling with it.
