I presented a tutorial at linux.conf.au a couple of weeks ago on what there was for Python developers between CGI scripts and Django. That developers needn’t still be writing CGI scripts in 2014 (it happens) and there were frameworks that met your needs.
This tutorial introduces the microframework Flask, and shows of a whole bunch of things you can do with it, up to being a fully-fledged replacement for Django if you’re so inclined.
In other news, I am now a maintainer of Lettuce, a BDD framework for Python/Django. So expect a few more Lettuce related blog posts (if I stop ignoring my blog).
