Ruby on Rails versus Python


Question

I am in the field of data crunching and very soon might make a move to the world of web programming. Although I am fascinated both by Python and Ruby as both of them seem to be having every similar styles when it comes to writing business logic or data crunching logic.

But when I start googling for web development I start inclining towards Ruby on Rails my question is why is the web world obsessed with ruby on rails and active records so much?

There seem to be so many screencasts to learn Ruby on Rails and plethora of good books too why is Python not able to pull the crowd when it comes to creating screencasts or ORM's like active record.

Ruby and Python are languages.

Rails is a framework.

So it is not really sensible to compare Ruby on Rails vs Python.

There are Python Frameworks out there you should take a look at for a more direct comparison - http://wiki.python.org/moin/WebFrameworks (e.g. I know Django gets a lot of love, but there are others)

Edit: I've just had a google, there seem to be loads of Django Screencasts.
