Python Web Frameworks

Book Description

Even though JavaScript tools dominate today’s web development landscape, Python provides aspiring web developers with a wide variety of useful web frameworks, written in a powerful, easy-to-learn language. This O’Reilly report surveys 30 Python web frameworks that have more than 1,000 monthly downloads and provides a deeper look into six of the most widely used.

Longtime Pythonista Carlos de la Guardia describes Python web frameworks ranging from full-stack options that offer a lot of functionality to micro frameworks that focus on simplicity with fewer features. You’ll not only get pointers on how to choose a framework that best fits your development needs, but you’ll also learn what it takes to create your own.

  • Take a tour of Python frameworks, from Appier, Cyclone, and Fantastico to Grok, Muffin, and Twisted
  • Dive into details on the top six Python frameworks—Django, Flask, Tornado, Bottle, Pyramid, and CherryPy
  • Review code examples, testing capabilities, best uses, and ways to get started with each of the top six
  • Learn Python’s building blocks for creating your own framework, and explore why you’d want to pursue this option
