  Mod_python's PSP: Python Server Pages
Subject:   mod_python PSP is redundant

Spyce (http://spyce.sf.net) covers everything that
PSP does and much more. Moreover, Spyce can
work via CGI, fastCGI and as its own proxy server
in addition to running over mod_python.


This means that PSP is just a case of reinventing
the wheel (and not a very good reinvention at that).
Forcing people to incur the extra bloat of PSP along
with mod_python when they want to use a better alternative is not a very good decision.

    I took a look a both and my conclusion is that both are capable of producing the exact same output with equal performance, the differents is more personal preference:
    - If you want PHP _like_ functionality with Python and no templating, go for Spyce
    - If you want Python programming with PHP _like_ functionality, go for mod_python and templating PSP
    - If your choice is between PSP with Spyce or mod_python, go for Spyce or Spyce on mod_python if you need the performance

      make that custom tags... ala JSP... a superior-to-templating feature that PHP doesn't have at all.

      While Spyce may not have templates per se, it supports tags and active handlers which can be so much more powerful than templates, yet easy to understand and learn at the same time.

    Using PSP as templates are a very good way of doing html pages. I don't see any advantage on using another tool.
    I'm converting my pages from Zope to mod_python using PSP and I'm very happy with the simplicity off PSP versus ZPT.
    I just want to thank you to Gregory Trubetskoy and to Sterling Hughes for their work.
