The Python Servlet Engine (PSE) is an application server for web-based applications written in the Python programming language. It offers powerful templating tools, separation of presentation and implementation, and unlimited extensibility through its plugin and custom tag architectures. PSE includes some default plugins that allow automatic session management, persistent data and access to client and server information.

PSE is written in Python for use with mod_python in Apache or as a CGI script. Completed applications written for PSE can be compiled and distributed without the original Python source code, allowing application developers to protect their intellectual property.
