Any Takers for Drupal in Python?

  2007-05-10


I half-jokingly posted a comment on Dries Buytaert blog about re-implementing Drupal in Python.  Honestly, I expected to either be flamed or ignored, but instead it turns out I’m not the first person to think of this!  Some people even suggested Haskell…  I think something a tad more mainstream like Python would fair much better.

Another commenter suggested Python doesn’t need Yet Another Web Framework which is absolutely true!  However, Python desperately needs an easy to use Content Management System, and Drupal is the best there is!

I posted a follow-up comment asking for anyone interested in pursuing such a wild course of action to contact me.

If you’ve read much of my blog, you know I’m relatively new to Python, but CherryPy and Genshi seem ideal for implementing Drupal.  CherryPy gives you the nice URLs and module layout while Genshi allows for a very similar theming experience.
