Python web app

What is the most common deployment for a production web app written in Python?

For example, PHP usually uses the LAMP stack with Apache server.

What's the equivalent setup for a Python app so that I can easily find instructions and info?

I know there are many small Python web server options around. Are they suitable for production grade application to put on the Internet?

I can't say about most common, but Django is pretty popular. In my experience it's really simple to pick up and decently full-featured.

I believe the regular stack to go along is Linux, Apache and PostgreSQL but it works with different OS, server software and DBMS.

Production grade will depend on your requirements. The developers for Django use it for a small newspaper's website but I'm not sure how well it'd work for banking or a high-traffic game, for example.

Django used to be the go to for a python web stack, but these days flask is getting more interest

I'm using django, nginx and gunicorn for production.
Previously was on pyramid but didn't like it.
