Many programming languages may come and go but, python is here to stay. Yes, Python is still a choice in 2021 and will continue to be so. Period.

Python and its frameworks are widely used and are still popular among developers.

I have listed down some top python web frameworks that you can learn and expand your coding knowledge. 



I think Django is going to top the list always until something new comes up to give it a tough competition. There is one that fails from being on the top with a slight margin that we will talk about later.

From the official documentation, "Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Built by experienced developers, it takes care of much of the hassle of Web development, so you can focus on writing your app without needing to reinvent the wheel. It’s free and open source."

This sums it all. Django is a good choice for developers looking for fast development and clean design. Ita a full-stack web framework. I have used it in several projects and it proved to be a reliable one. 

It has about 54.2k stars on Github.

Flask is what I was talking about when I said it comes down to second after Django.

It is minimal, simple, and grained modules. This is why developers have the freedom to do add-ons.

It has 53.2k stars on Github.

This tutorial will teach you to build a blog covering all the basics and make you an expert in the flask. Try it!


If you are looking for something that will help you quickly deliver a project without any hassle then this micro-framework is the answer.

Flask and Bottle's syntax is quite similar too.

It's mostly preferred when there is a need for a web-framework where it just needs to handle REST APIs.

It offers a way to map routes to directories on-disk for static file serving

Also, it's quite small in size and fits in a single file, and has very few dependencies. 

It has about 7.1k stars on Github.

CherryPy has been around for more than 20 years but, it's still relevant and is used by several developers around the world. 

Used by popular sites like Netflix and Hulu, CHerryPy is known for giving you a feel like there is no framework that's being used.

It works like low-level building blocks while only containing a bare minimum for serving web-pages. CherryPy also offers a way to map routes to directories on-disk for static file serving.

As of now, CherryPy has about 1.3k stars on Github.

Another among top python web frameworks is Falcon.

Falcon is a web framework you need if you just need to work with REST APIs. Frankly, it is not a framework you should use if you are looking for more features to build a web app. It's just a slender web framework for REST APIs. 

But there is this thing that it provides a way to extend their functionalities in a sophisticated manner.

It has about 8.1k stars on Github.
