Matt Grayson is another Python programmer that despite his love for Python “…haven’t done much Python lately”. He blames Rails, which he declares “…is worth the hype.”. On the prospect of seeing Python on Rails, he offers:
The closest thing I’d found to Rails in Python is a combination of CherryPy, SQLObject and Cheetah. But as much as I like each one of those pieces individually, they won’t ever fit together like Rails – which is why I don’t have a lot of optimism for things like Subway. I’ve got nothing against Subway. Could they pull it off and put together a really good Python web framework? Sure. But, given the track record of past attempts at web frameworks within the Python community, I won’t hold my breath.
And Jake from Maui is yet another Python programmer that has been getting into Ruby through Rails:
Every time my work took extra time, it’s because I was expecting a level of complexity that wasn’t there. Wow. It’s not often that one of the tools I use humbles me, but finally I’ve found something that allows me to write code as fast as I think.
