ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

I have an application written in C++ running on a Linux server. I would like to be able to connect a web browser to that server and have the web page display the status of the application and allow configuration settings to be displayed and modified.
The program will need to display counters which could be updated as often as every second. Drop down menus, progress bars and meters would also be nice.
What I'm looking to learn from this thread it where to start. I have some programming experience (mostly C) and have done some work with Qt4 and C++. What language should I learn next? What tool kit or library should I use?
I'm not really a web developer, but I hope that this is helpful to you.
Python has a built-in webserver. I have used it to implement a single-purpose function distantly related to what you seem to want. I implemented it as a single .py file of 72 lines, including white space and my custom functionality.
If you combine that with Django you have a pretty powerful tool that can get to about anything on your server system.
