Comment Re:why won't javascript die already? (Score 1) 248

While it's hard to disagree that python would be ideal for both client-side and server-side, I think you probably realize that realistically that's not going to happen anytime soon. With that said, there certainly is the possibility to use javascript on both ends, via server-side options like jaxer ( http://www.aptana.com/jaxer ), helma ( http://dev.helma.org/ ), or maybe even JScript.net if you're stuck on windows.

I think you'll find that this latest version (2.0) of javascript is very pythonic, with its array comprehensions that are a lot like Python's list comprehensions.

As an aside, you're not still writing SQL queries are you? Almost every web dev platform out there has that abstracted nowadays... SQLAlchemy is a great choice for python...
