[CentralOH] CherryPy, Flask, or Django

Hi John,

I'm using Django, and really like it. Django is heavy in the sense that
it's "batteries included" but it's not heavy in the sense that you have to
write a lot of code to get a decent site up and running.

Another advantage of Django is there is a large ecosystem of components
available. If you want to build everything yourself, that's not an
advantage, but if you don't want to constantly have to reinvent the wheel,
it's a real blessing.  Also, with Django being used on a number of
high-traffic sites, a lot of its inefficiencies have been ironed out... you
won't generally have to worry about performance until you are really up
there in views.

I can't say anything about CherryPy or Flask, I'm sure they are good
frameworks as well, but it was really easy for me to get started with
Django, and it's been able to grow as my sites have grown.
