Overview

Python is steadly becoming a popular and proven language for web development. Frameworks like django and Google App Engine illustrate Python's ease of use and potential as a web programming language. It would make sense for MapGuide to support Python as a web development environment. IIS and Apache can easily support Python as well.

MapGuide currently uses SWIG to create language bindings to the underlying native API, so the infrastructure already exists to do this.
