Klaatu - Thanks, your episodes are always solid, and this one gave me 10 new things to go explore. It may have helped that it lined up with something I'm currently playing with (some home automation and a tool for my wife's coworkers), so that made it that much better for me. Thx - Scott

Zero thanks for introducing yet another tool I'd like to learn but have no time! Maybe next vacation. :)

Give bottle a try
Great episode. If you like Flask, you may want to also try out bottle for smaller projects, or if you just want to make a REST API. It has very similar calls, like app.route(), and it's default templating engine is pretty similar to Jinja2. You can use Jinja2 if you wish with bottle as well.

Glad the ep is appreciated! As I say in the show, the only reason I ended up using Flask was because it's what we had installed at the day job. Bottle, Web2Py, and Django are all other similar projects which I probably should have mentioned in the shownotes, so people can click on links and read up on each to see what they are interested in. Either way, it's pretty fun to mess around with, and a great way to stay immersed in Python, if that's what you already know (or are busy learning and/or perfecting).
