I'm looking for recommendations on a language/development environment for building some simple web applications on the pi. I thought Web2Py would be good, but I found it frustrating and not a lot of support documentation.
I basically want to write some simple personal-use, data-driven applications, control pins, servos, etc. Many years ago I'd write basic asp/SQL apps and it was easy to see what the code was doing. I've looked at Web2py, Ruby (seems more complicated than I need so far) and I have a basic handle on Python at the moment.
My main box is a mac so a simple development environment on that platform would be great.
Any thoughts on the 'path of least resistance' for me?
