I tried both and prefer Rails to python…but, obviously, each have their own pros and cons…Unfortunately I am not familiar with Django though…Hopefully someone else on here is though! When you start rails, start at the site below. Excellent approach and you solve simple problems using what you learned to progress to the next lesson…It was like strapping a rocket to my back when i first started rails…
Cheers, however I have to say I think you’ve possibly made a mistake in your comparison. Comparing Rails to Python is an unbalanced comparison, Rails is a framework whereas Python is a language. Any person of sane mind would prefer Rails to Python because frameworks are designed to make things easier. Python should be compared to raw Ruby not the Rails framework
I’ve been through the intro tutorials to both of them. Rails was a pain to install, kicking up a fuss over file permissions constantly, whereas Django was really easy.
However, having used them both for a little while I must say I am impressed by both of them, Rails moreso. Will have to do a bit more digging to see if Rails can do what I want (I know Django can) before I make a choice though
