Chalk One up for Django – The Rails vs Django Faceoff is Kicked up a Notch
The web app platform Rails, built upon the Ruby framework, has enjoyed a rocketing lead in the publicity arena with all the press generated by 37 signals and their opinionated founders. In contrast, Django, built upon the python language has gained popularity while staying out of the limelight.
Over the past month the tide has begun to turn thanks to the help of Google. When Google’s Application Engine is released to the general public it will run on the python language and come pre-installed with Django.
While Google is considering offering other languages at a later date, at this point Python and Django are the Belles of the Ball.
