Tru-Guru Home Biz Mastery - High Conversion.

This tutorial covers two web programming models that can be used with Python: the CGI standard and mod_python.

As a general rule if you are in a shared host environment then your only option will be to run python scripts as CGI. Some specialized hosting providers will let you use and configure mod_python. Mod_python's performance and flexibility is much superior to CGI.

There is no need to read the mod_python section if you want CGI and vice versa. They are not related to each other. To follow this tutorial it is required that you have a basic Python programming knowledge. If you need to learn how to program visit the Python Tutorial first.

Please post any doubt, suggestion or critique at the Web Python Board and help making this a better tutorial.

Python is an interpreted, general-purpose high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Python aims to combine "remarkable power with very clear syntax", and its standard library is large and comprehensive. Its use of indentation for block delimiters is unusual among popular programming languages. Python supports multiple programming paradigms, primarily but not limited to object oriented, imperative and, to a lesser extent, functional programming styles. It features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management, similar to that of Scheme, Ruby, Perl, and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts. The reference implementation of Python (CPython) is free and open source software and has a community-based development model, as do all or nearly all of its alternative implementations. CPython is managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation. Python interpreters are available for many operating systems, and Python programs can be compiled into stand-alone executable code for those systems, using tools included with the interpreter installation package.
