If you are looking at python, you have a lot of choices.
The first choice is which database to use, object-oriented, or relational.
If you choose relational, then django is the mainstream choice.
If you choose object oriented, then you can consider ZODB. It stores a
persistent network of objects. Which leads to either the Zope 3 /
ZTFY.org web framework, or else
pyramid. Pyramid is good for simpler applications, as they get more
complicated, I would recommend ztfy.org. and wiki.ztfy.org
Better yet, just get a complete school application at
built on top of zope 3, very easy to make any customizations you want,
that is the greatest strength of Zope 3.
