django vs cakephp for heavy data grid website development

I need to develop a web app which is not complex, but a lot of data grid pages with 'spreadsheet' like capabilities for adding and deleting columns, the normal A/E/D, and sort by columns type of thing, with some simple filtering with a pull down on top of the screen providing the filtering criteria.

I prefer to do all the queries and store procedures in mysql instead of having the sql right in the code.  So the coding should pretty much just need to handling the front end, connect to db, call store proc and pass in whatever parameters and display on the page.

I am looking for a framework which can really speed up the development process instead of coding everything myself.  

Php or Python will be the choices, the only dilemma is that can their web dev framework handle this namely django or cakephp?

Any recommendations will be very helpful.   Thanks.

Most of this should be done using a Jquery plugin. There are many. The framework isn't that important IMHO.

Thanks aarontomsky.  i thought jquery is just a tool to 'drag and drop' without writing javascript, i don't really care what coding to write, as long as i can do it quickly.  I personally do not like javascript just because i am not familiar with it comparing to traditional backend coding like c++ or java, and i am comfortable with mvc and oo structure.  

So you are suggesting just using javascript? where can i find some information on it (i don't mean searching google for hours).

JavaScript is front end. Jquery is just a library to make things easier.

For example, the usergoes to a page, the hp or asp or whatever backend makes a query to the database. It spits out probably a json object since those work well. Then I passes that object to the front end js based datagrid. The user plays around with it without any page loads. You can also save data without any page loads. All the CPU is on the users PC. This is really the way to go.
