I need to write a web interface for some computational biology software
I don't have much experience writing web sites or applications. Can
anyone recommend a python framework that will allow me to easily write a
few pages? I need to accept some user input in the form of some options
and download a potentially large file from the user's computer. The job
can take some time to run so I'll need to notify them via email when it
I should say our group already uses an Apache web server so I'd like to
host the pages from that server.
I know there are various python web frameworks but I don't want to learn
a complicated one, I really just want the simplest tool for the job. Are
any of the following suitable?
Zope, Django, Pylons, Grok, Pyramid
I see quite a few are listed here:
Thanks in advance for any help,
