PHDoc is a version of Markdoc adapted to the needs of academics. It aims to provide a lightweight alternative to large database-powered wiki systems, giving easy management of Web sites with a clean typographic layout, inspired by the beauty of LaTeX-made documents. LaTeX math markup and automatic hyphenation are supported. Scaffolding exemplifies everything that is needed for a personal website, without any technical prerequisites like HTML or CSS.
CubicWeb is a semantic Web application framework that empowers developers to build Web applications by reusing components (called cubes) and following the well known object-oriented design principles. Its main features are: an engine driven by the explicit data model of the application; a query language, RQL, similar to W3C’s SPARQL; a selection+view mechanism for semi-automatic XHTML/XML/JSON/text generation; a library of reusable components (data model and views) that fulfill common needs; the power and flexibility of the Python programming language; and the reliability of SQL databases, LDAP directories, Subversion, and Mercurial for storage backends.
Dynamic Form is a Python request abstraction library that lets you write one request handler that will run on multiple Python Web frameworks (such as Django and Google's AppEngine). This allows you to create pages and apps once and use them on multiple projects without concern about which framework is being used. Additionally, it makes AJAX easy. Simply adding nested request classes allows you to define AJAX handlers that can easily be refreshed both sever-side and client-side.
WebBot is a Web development toolset which is designed to sit nicely on top of your existing infrastructure. It is built with a collection of Open Source tools which together enable building Python Web applications the same way native ones are built and running these applications on top of the leading Python frameworks (such as Django and Google's App Engine). As a result, the WebBot framework encourages reuse, concise code, rapid development, and happy developers.
GUI Builder is a drag and drop interface for creating WebElement User Interface (WUI) templates that can be used as the foundation of a responsive Wep app. It simplifies the process of designing applications, and encourages separation of the logic and view. It is part of the WebBot Web development framework, which makes it possible to build Web apps in a similar fashion to Qt/KDE apps.
PySite is not a CMS in the traditional sense. Rather, you manage the contents of a Web site via a file manager interface, which gives you access to all settings (pages, styles, plugins, etc.). Compose your pages with Jinja templates, and edit your code comfortably with syntax highlighting in the ACE editor. You may write your stylesheets in Sass and let the integrated compiler write CSS files. PySite also contains a facility to manage virtual mailboxes, in case you maintain your own SMTP and IMAP server, e.g. with Postfix and Dovecot.
