There are many high level handlers from which to choose. mod_python includes Publisher & PSP. My recommendation to any beginner is to read the complete (but short) documentation: http://www.modpython.org/live/current/doc-html/ Try out the included handlers before trying to write your own. Take a look at other handlers that are available. Then choose the one that suits your style or write your own. Remember that mod_python attempts to leverage Python, so much of the functionality is provided by modules in the standard library or in site-packages, with mod_python providing an interface to Apache. Some handlers are more transparent than others, depending on their design goals. This means that you will often be looking outside of mod_python when trying to find features or functionality similar to PHP.
