With its flexibility, readability, and mature code libraries, Python is a natural choice for developing agile and maintainable web applications. Several frameworks have emerged in the last few years that share ideas with Ruby on Rails and leverage the expressive nature of Python. This Short Cut will tell you what you need to know about the hottest fullstack frameworks: Django, Pylons, and TurboGears. Their philosophies, relative strengths, and development status are described in detail.

What you won't find out is, "Which one should I use?" The short answer is that all of them can be used to build web applications- the challenge for the reader is to find the one that fits his or her project or coding style best.
