Some of the most exciting activity in this area can be seen in the Python community, one of the wildly popular frameworks to enter the fray being Pylons.

This book is a comprehensive introduction to Pylons, the web framework that uses the best of Ruby, Python, and Perl and the emerging WSGI standard to provide structure and flexibility. You'll learn how to create your own Pylons-driven web site and attain the mastery of advanced Pylons features. You'll also learn how to stretch Pylons to its fullest ability, as well as share Gardner's unique insight and extensive experience in developing and deploying Pylons for a wide variety of situations.

  • Install and configure Pylons, and create your first Pylons-driven web application.
  • Take advantage of Pylons' built-in support for advanced features such as session management, web services, and Ajax.
  • Develop your web applications in the most efficient way possible through test-driven development, logging, testing.
  • Wield the true power of Pylons through its extension capabilities, unique support for WSGI, and the ability to integrate with other popular frameworks such as Django.
