Other python web frameworks(pyramid or turbogears) with Python Tools

Sep 23, 2012 at 4:28 PM

Hi, I'm a long time .net dev and currently giving python a try. I know python tools supports Django which is great but I will like to try other python frameworks such as pyramid (http://www.pylonsproject.org/) or turbogears(http://www.turbogears.org/en/welcome)  using python tools. I'm new to python, hence could use help/direction as to whether its possible to use the mentioned frameworks above with python tools and how. Thanks.

Right now there's no built in support for other frameworks.  We picked Django first because of it's popularity but that doesn't mean we wouldn't do another framework, or accept contributions to another framework, in the future.

For the time being you can always make an empty Python project and you should get a pretty good experience with editing code, etc...  What features would you like to see PTVS support with the other frameworks?  Is there a templating engine you want supported, or just the ability to deploy to Azure, both, or something else?

I'm mostly looking to deploy web apps build with pyramid as a web role in azure. I guess I can deploy them as a vm but most of all, I wanted the ability to be able to call .net libraries from my python web app and visa versa.
