Both Django & web2py are good frameworks.
I have tried both of them + others & then chosen a hybrid of web2py +
DABO bizobj for my work.
(DABO is a desktop app framework; so I have chosen only the BizObj
layer from it, which can do its job in any other python web or desktop

Typically, my apps are data-centric business apps.
web2py wins in simplycity yet powerfullness, no install, no
dependencies, good docs & community, low learning curve, etc.

DABO BizObj excels in managing the business logic aspect (including
managing multiple tables insert/update/delete, rollback, before
insert, after save, ... the list is quite long)

Also, there are threads in which discuss in-depth
the +1 & -1 for these frameworks.
Contributors to these threads include the lead developers including
Massimo himself.

Hope this helps.
