You should definitely check out the SIMPL toolkit (http://
www.icanprogram.com/simpl). We have used this ultra lightweight
toolkit in several embedded Linux projects. It will allow you to
seamlessly connect your Python bits with bits more appropriately
written in other languages like C.
There is a "hello world" level tutorial on the Python-SIMPL
capabilities (which includes a web CGI interface) at:
If you have any questions about our SIMPL experiences don't hesitate
