Question: Should I use a Web Framework for this project or Not?

Posted 21 February 2013 - 10:53 AM

I have been tinkering with Python for a while and know the very basics,it seems the best way to learn python is to just go for a first project and try to get it done.

For my first project I decided to make a web app the takes user user input from a front end web page and at the submit gets sent to a python script that does the following.

1. Gets a text template file, (in this case a resume template)
2. Makes an exact copy of that file.
3. Adds user input, such as their Name, Last name, etc... To chosen areas within the new file.
4. Display the text in the browser window and finally let the user print the file.

Would I need a web framework to do such task? I know I can make this to run on a terminal because i have already attempted something like this before and I got it to work, but I was taking raw_input and adding it to a .txt file. Didnt look very pretty but it did the task. Now I want to do it but as a web app rather than a terminal app.

Thoughts? Im sorry if I didnt give enough info, Im a bit of a noob as Im sure you can tell.

Why would you add the extra tedium and complexity of making your app web based for your first project? Do something simpler!

EDIT:
To actually answer your question, you don't need a web framework for this.

I would rather do something over my head than simple any day. It allows for quicker learning, and more exciting results.
