  1. Download latest stable of Python (as of today version 2.5).
  2. Visit cheesecake for some module shopping.
  3. Before installing anything else, easy_install module is a must-have!
  4. If you are planning to use MySQL database, install module mysql-python.
  5. On top of MySQL,if you need ORM (Object Relational Mapper), download SqlAlchemy.
  6. If you are planning to do unit testing, install nose.
  7. If you need MVC Web framework you can either:
  8. If you are thinking of rolling your own architecture:
    • For getting up to speed in Web Server development, download CherryPy.
    • As you get large number of hits, you might be considering Lighttpd. To communicate CherryPy & Lighttpd, install scgi via: easy_install scgi.
    • If you need templating language for generating dynamic html, there are gazillion of them, I don’t know which one is good: Cheetah(PHP-alike), Kid(XML-ish), Genshi (XML + embedded Python), Mako (not XML), etc.
