Wagtail has the perfect separation between developers and editors. It allows you to construct a site with minimal fuss with features like the awesome stream field and hand it over to virtually any content editor. You can build the site with no knowledge of Django and with the simple interface, it requires no training to get started. Although this will always require developer time, with 2 or 3 days you can quickly get up a boilerplate site that will fulfill 80% of any site you will develop. Leaving only the bespoke parts to do. It also nicely slots into any Django project with no fuss. See More
Django comes with an admin feature out of the box that is basically a bare bones CMS. One does not need any additional libraries (i.e. all other Django based CMSs listed here). The default Django admin can be used as a foundation to create a custom CMS. Other libraries come with a lot of extras that are nice. They may also add layers of complexity that could be confusing to a newbie without experience using vanilla Django. See More
Just a few lines of code can instruct Django to create all the tables and fields required in your database automatically. Schemas are managed with "migrations", that are also created automatically, and can be rolled out from your development box and implemented on production systems with just a single command. This performs any database changes required, from table creation, indexes, renaming fields, and pre-populating initial data. Each migration builds on the previous migrations, so you can trace the evolution of your data and even recreate the layout of your database at any point in the lifecycle of your application. See More
The official Django documentation is probably some of the best around. Well written, thorough and they explain every little detail of the framework. Django is also a very popular tool, with an extensive community and a lot of experienced developers that have been using it for years. This means that there are a lot of guides and tutorials out there for new and experienced developers alike. See More
Django supports Object-Relational Mapping. With models defined as Python classes which are actually subclasses of Django's django.db.models.Model. Each attribute of the model is then represented as a database field. Queries are lazily executed and Django gives developers an automatically-generated database-access API. See More
Django was first released in 2005, it has had a lot of time to mature and become better with each release. It also has by far the largest community out of all python frameworks who have continuously over the years built and maintained many powerful plugins. See More
Plone has been around for almost two decades and to date, less than 50 vulnerabilities were discovered in the platform. That's at least ten times less than any of the popular alternatives, including Wordpress, Drupal, and Joomla. In fact, government agencies, such as NASA and FBI use Plone for its high level of security. See More
web2py includes an "admin" app that serves as a web-based IDE for web2py applications. It includes many features, such as application creation, compiling, and packaging; an error ticketing system; a code editor; a debugger; a controller doctest runner; Git and Mercurial integration; and one-click deployment to PythonAnywhere, Google App Engine, and OpenShift. It is not intended as a full desktop IDE replacement, but it includes some helpful web2py specific functionality and can be convenient for basic editing and debugging tasks and quick prototyping, even for those who primarily work with a more full-featured desktop IDE or editor.

However, particularly with regard to code editing and debugging and version control integration, it is not as full-featured as some of the more popular desktop IDEs such as PyCharm. So, developers expecting a PyCharm-like experience may be somewhat disappointed. In any case, use of the web-based IDE is completely optional. See More
web2py documentation does not follow the common pattern of using Sphinx, MkDocs or ReadTheDocs which is goos for exeperienced developers. Although documentation in form of a book is very easy and good for beginners. Turning web2py the most easy and comprehensive framework to learn and also to teach. See More
web2py is very easy to learn for beginners, yet it has a great deal of power and flexibility as application needs become more complex. It includes an impressively comprehensive set of features, making development very productive without the need to integrate a lot of third-party libraries. See More
Web2py apps are designed to be portable. With some minor restrictions web2py apps can run on any VPS on SQL databases and/or Mongo, as well as on Google App Engine with the Google Datastore. It is truly code ones and run everywhere. For example at Camio.com we use web2py internally to access a GAE datastore which contains more images than Instagram. See More
