To more and more Python web developers, WSGI holds the key to the Python web development future. Since there are a number of important web development frameworks and the power of Python makes it really easy to create new ones quickly, interacting with best of breed applications developed in multiple frameworks could soon be the best way to create a new Python web site.

Until relatively recently, Zope 3 and some of its derived applications, like Grok, ran the risk of missing the WSGI party, but not anymore. Grok 1.1 is WSGI compatible and can therefore be integrated with the wide range of WSGI-based technologies available in the Python world today.
