web2py is a powerful and popular Python web application development framework firmly built on the Model-View-Controller (MVC) paradigm, a popular design pattern often used for building user interfaces (UIs). A popular alternative to Django - another popular full-stack web framework - web2py offers an easy setup and a built-in integrated development environment (IDE). In this course, explore the fundamentals of web requests and responses, examine how web browsers and web servers interact, and identify the role of HTML and HTTP. Next, learn how web apps are created with frameworks and examine important Python web development frameworks such as Django, Flask, molten, and web2py. After that, compare web2py and Django and learn web2py's strengths and limitations. Finally, examine the web2py workflow, practice building your first simple web2py app, and explore the directory structure and support available for multiple languages and translation.
