In this case you are looking for a web application framework. There
are many written in python, a good place to start would be:

My personal opinion is that the 3 top frameworks to consider are: (1)
django (2) turbogears (3) web2py. You need to decide for yourself
which one use choose, you may even choose something other than these
3, there are tons more.


Psss, psss, put it down! -
