Django or web.py, what is better to create a great website with Python?

I'd like to use Python to build a website with more than 100,000 PV each day. Now what I concern is to choose which web framework. I know lots of people use Django, and some people use web.py. Django seems powerful, and I also like the simplicity of web.py. Which framework should I use? (Please introduce the performance and the maintenance complexity, thanks!) Can web.py build complicated applications? Are there other frameworks better than these two?


Django makes building complicated sites really simple. Before Django, I was messing around with PHP, and I was doing a really terrible job putting it together. Django leads you in the right direction with some good practices which makes your site really easy to maintain and update. I really like the ORM and how you can easily work with data from the database without having to write a single line of SQL. It makes development less of a slog.

I don't have any experience with web.py, and I can't compare the performance of the two. But you can't go wrong with Django at least.
