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

http://wiki.python.org/moin/WebFrameworks

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.

Cheers,
Daniel
