I started looking at the Django Project, which is a web framework written in Python. While I'm finding overwhelming I'm still impressed by what it offers; I presume it's similar to Ruby on Rails and automates a lot of the initial hard graft.

According to the Django tutorials, you can get a working administration front end for a basic poll application in minutes. You don't have to write the admin front end (code or layout) as it's already provided in generic form that you override. Damn impressive!

Just thinking of how I could extend my PHP framework to provide this functionality hurts my brain. It's a huge amount of work and I'm wondering why I would even consider continuing with my scripts. I love Python programming and Django (and other frameworks) would be ideal for prototyping some ideas I have. Sooooo.....
