The Austin Python Meetup Message Board › python based web server -- best approach?

python based web server -- best approach?

Scott B

Post #: 5

There appear to be a LOT of ways to implement a web server around python:


if I want to implement an interface that will primarily consist of displaying button icons
and text listboxes, where all I care about knowing is when the user presses a button
icon or selects an entry in a listbox (whether automatically detected, or only detected
once another button is pressed, to accept the listbox entry) -- and then have the
server take some action based on that -- what would be the best approach?

SimpleHTTPServer and and CGIHTTPServer seem to be oriented around serving static web (HTML)
documents, which is not what I want.

I'm not interested in a complex framework -- I'm interested in the simplest way to
do only what I describe above.
For personal use only -- security therefore not an issue.

I already have most of what I want working.
So far so good.
