Spyce v1.3.9 released on 1 March 2002

SPYCE is a server-side language that supports simple and efficient
Python-based dynamic HTML generation. Those who are familiar with JSP,
PHP, or ASP and like Python, should have a look at Spyce. Its modular
design makes it very flexible and extensible. It can also be used as a
command-line utility for static text pre-processing.
