Python Web Developer Appliance Project Home


The objective for the Python Web Developer Appliance project is to facilitate both learning how to develop and developing web applications using Python.

The Python Web Developer Appliance includes the leading Python web development frameworks and supporting libraries pre-installed and ready use, alongside a complete open-source software stack for building and deploying web applications. The appliance represents an attempt to take the "batteries included" philosophy to another level with respect to web application development and deployment.
