Using Python to Create Ajax-Powered Sites
TurboGears harnesses the power of Python to provide a dynamic and easy-to-use Web development framework: one that dramatically increases developer productivity, and makes it far easier to create dynamic, user-friendly, Ajax-enabled Web applications. Now, for the first time, there’s a definitive guide to TurboGears — coauthored by its creator, Kevin Dangoor.
This book will help experienced Web developers get productive with TurboGears — fast. You’ll quickly build your first TurboGears Web application — then extend it one step at a time, mastering the underlying libraries that make these enhancements possible. Next, the authors demonstrate TurboGears at work in a real-world application, by examining the code for “What Status”, an open source project status tracking application. Finally, you’ll gain deep insight into the model, view, and controller technologies TurboGears is built upon: knowledge that will help you build far more robust and capable Python applications.
Wonderful book, that was outdated nearly as soon as it was published.
TurboGears is a nice framework, but unfortunately, also a framework in rapid change. The book is well-written, but most of the examples can't be used as presented.
Anyway, they produced a good book, that I hope will be updated in a few years, when the framework is more stable.
