Python platform/framework for new RESTful web app

Discussion in 'Python' started by Eric Frederich, Apr 25, 2013.

  1. If I wanted to create a new web application (RESTful) today with Python
    what are my options given the following requirements.

    * Google Account authentication
    * Facebook authentication
    * Managed hosting (like Google App Engine or Heroku) but with the ability
    to be self-hosted later down the road.

    I am familiar with Django (well I was a 3 years ago).
    I have played a little with web.py and like the ideas there.

    I like the idea of using something like GAE but don't want to be locked in.

    Is Django the answer?
    I think you can run Django on GAE (and obviously you can self-host it).
    I see there is a Django REST framework. Is this a good framework?
    Are there good Google and Facebook authentication extensions?

    Thanks,
    ~Eric
