I need to write a browser interface for an application running embedded on a single board computer (Gumstix Verdex for anyone who's interested), so I won't be able to use any web frameworks due to space and processor constraints (and availability for the environment I'm running in). I'm limited to the core Python and cgi modules to create pages that will communicate with a C++ application.
Can anyone recommend a good resource (web or book form, but books are preferred) for learning CGI programming in Python?
One of the biggest resources for CGI programming is the CGI homepage. Once you're done with that, familiarizing yourself with the cgi and cgitb modules should be your next task.
But don't discount learning WSGI (libref) and using a CGI-to-WSGI adaptor such as flup.
