Take a look at the Python3 branch of Flask:
And the werkzeug webserver:
If you download these you can install them with:
> python setup.py install
(werkzeug first, then flask)
Here's the most basic webserver you can create that way:
from flask import Flask
app = Flask(__name__)
return "Hello, Web!"
if __name__ == "__main__":
And yet flask is highly extensible with a lot of plugins.
