It has far more capability, is far better documented, and is just as quick to deploy. While I haven't yet converted all past projects to use bottle.py, it will likely happen in time, unless something even simpler to use is discovered, although I can hardly imagine that happening.

bottle.py uses http.server for its local development mode (the one you
see in their quickstart example at the top of their README). Same with
flask, django, and probably a bunch of other frameworks. It's *very*
widely used.
