The more I use Python, the nicer it becomes. I’m currently working on a project for a course, which involves somewhat heavy-duty database and algorithm work. Python is my language of choice for it - let’s hope it works out well.
In the meantime, I’ve found a really nice python shell called iPython (available in apt) - it adds a bunch of stuff to the python shell which I sorely missed from irb - autocompletion, auto-indentation, and - it seems - adds a whole lot more.
Looks like I’ll have to check django out as well. I’ve been working with Ruby on Rails for quite a while now (and that’s how I got introduced to Ruby in the first place). Odd as it may be… do I have a new favorite language?
