I recommend using WSGI and a framework that uses it (my personal
preference is Flask, but the above will also work). Here are a couple
of simple sites:
You can see them in operation here:
Note how URLs are defined in the code, rather than by having a bunch
of loose files (the way a PHP web site works). This makes it a lot
easier to group things logically, and utility lines like redirects
become very cheap. The maintenance burden is far lighter with this
kind of one-file arrangement.
These sites are really tiny, though, so if you have something a bit
bigger, you'll probably want to split things into multiple files. Good
news! You can do that, too - it's easy enough to split on any boundary
you find logical.
