Unlike our frontend, we chose Flask, a microframework, for our backend. We use it with Python 3 and Gunicorn.

One of the reasons was that I have significant experience with this framework. However, it also was a rather straightforward choice given that our backend almost only serves REST APIs, and that most of the work is talking to the database with SQLAlchemy .

We could have gone with something like Hug but it is kind of early. We might revisit that decision for new services later on.
