This thread has me thinking about good ways to use python with web pages.
Maybe php or just flat HTML for the main page and have python work with cgi
to pass information with json's using AJAX
Any thoughts on this?
I started using php many years ago and always ended up using php itself the
update itself from other php pages using ajax.
Maybe php for authentication with COOKIES?
