Re: Cherrypy and RhubarbTart

I guess it is ok to write Yet Another Framework if it is yours, eh? ;)

Seriously, I like the fact that there are so many frameworks from which to choose, and I hope yours meets with success. I also hope this means that you are no longer in the "frameworks suck" camp.

I don't worry about the Yet Another thing anymore, I got over that at least a year ago. People spout on about What We Need To Do, but they are approaching it from the wrong angle in this case, I think. We don't need a clear choice for Python, we need compelling choices that happen to be written in Python. And we need to do the best to build a common and comfortable infrastructure, and to break down unnecessary barriers, and so forth.

I do still feel that frameworks suck. Shit smells too, but I don't shove a plug up my butt in the hope I'll never produce anymore shit. Frameworks suck, but they are inevitable. I just hope that they can be small and stay in their place.
