If you want to learn web-programming, then CGI (Common Gateway Interface) can be a good place to start – letting you learn the basics before moving onto more complex tasks. It’s really easy to write a CGI script with Python and the cgi module and these videos in Club ShowMeDo can help you on the way:
- Introduction to Python web-programming: CGI (Free)
- Using Python’s CGIHTTPServer module to run CGI scripts
- Using Python’s CGI module
- Writing a Python CGI Wiki – viewing pages
- Writing a Python CGI Wiki – displaying an edit form
In future episodes I’ll expand the CGI wiki to save pages, auto-link “wiki words” and generally finish the basic code. Those episodes should appear over the next couple of weeks.
This is one of our ShowMeDo Club tutorials for subscribers, a part of our 231 (mostly free) screencasts that help you to learn Python. Subscribers get access to 6+ hours of Python tutorials, exercises and walk-throughs with new episodes every week.subscribe to my RSS feed!
