What is the target developer for any of these said web app servers?
Is the target a webshop which has seperate HTML designers and web
programming developers? Or are they designed for the person/people who
can do (is doing) it all?
If peaceful coexistance between HTML people and programmers is a
requirement, then Zope is an excellent example, for that is a primary
goal of Zope. However if that is not a requirement then Quixote (yet
another Python web app server) provides an interesting perspective.
Being Python based and its users proficient Python programmers they
prefer to stay as close to and within Python as much as possible for
their web app development. Even their templating language PTL's (Python
Template Language) goal is to be very Pythonic in flavor.
Whether or not their design goals are shared here, it is an interesting
read to see other perspectives. The authors of this web app server are
very familiar with Zope and chose this direction for their own development.
Take a look.
