Pylons provides a structured but extremely flexible Python web framework.

It works a bit differently from other frameworks. Instead of presenting a rigid structure or recreating all the pieces that a web application framework should provide, it chooses a loosely coupled approach.

Pylons is a collection of very carefully selected components that are well known and widespread, and almost any of them can be exchanged (that's what we meant by loosely coupled).
