Hello Bart and Hugo,
I'm new with MapFish, I've just installed and done some basic tests.
First of all, I don't understand how it works pylons virtual environment. Anyway, I'm interested in client side of MapFish to build a Rich web mappinng application. Now We use OL over an apache server and it's a clear and tipical structure of files and data. When We need to create a new component, we extends OL classes creating new js files. Server side components are created using servlets or php and client comunicates with them using ajax.
I don't understand how the same can be do it with MapFish. I think there are a great dependency with python server environment.

I think you need to differentiate between MapFish and GeoExt.
What is complex in your opinion?
MapFish is more than just a client webmapping package, it's a full web-mapping solution, so server-side + client-side.

We use OpenLayers since 4 years and the results are very satisfactory. Nowadays, We are planning to make a step foreward using MapFIsh. Somebody has experience with this framework? What's your opinion versus OL?
In my first sight, I think MapFish too complex.
What do you think?
Thanks in advance.
