Decisions about Flask

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Flask in their tech stack.

I have a client who currently has a Adobe ColdFusion 8 based web application. It is very modest and is only used by one or two people. It is primarily used for editing very basic data (e.g. a few text fields and text boxes for various entities). I have no experience with ColdFusion, but it seems like it would be better to go with some other technologies/stacks/etc. to do such a thing, especially given that there is a significant upfront cost to ColdFusion. It doesn't seem to be a very "popular" "framework" to use, and it would be harder to find support for it, down the road. Any recommendations about a good set of tech/framework to use for a simple CRUD application? I was thinking of perhaps looking into Flask with Python, or Django. Any thoughts?
