Review ofFlaskFlask

Flask is a light, yet powerful Python web framework perfect for quickly building smaller web applications. It's a "micro-framework" that's easy to learn and simple to use, so it's perfect for those new to web development as well as those looking to rapidly develop a web application.

Express.js is the workhorse of the backend. It's not the most exciting part of a stack, but it works, is very well documented, and you can find a plugin for almost everything you could possibly want. We also carefully evaluated Koa.js, but decided not to go down this route: fewer plugins, less documentation & answers online. I'm also not personally convinced by the generators yield syntax at all. ES7 async functions looks like a much better bet, and with Promises and Babel I can have that already today.

I use express.js for and web apps.

Express is well-known, lightweight, works out-of-the-box, has great middleware support and has minimal learning curve.

It is the best framework to start developing a general Node.js web app.

I use Flask for times when I need to create a REST API that interfaces with other Python code, or there is no specific reason why I'd want to use Node.JS. I prefer Flask because of its small learning curve, allowing me to get started coding as quickly as possible

This lightweight web framework enables quick REST API development while enabling easy clustering, and the usage of multiple worker processes required to scale the REST API service to meet high volume requirements.

I'm fluent in ExpressJS, but over the past two years I have moved to HapiJS. Similar results, but I find Hapi to be more full-featured towards my app, api and service needs. I can operate confidently in both.

Django REST delivered all the content to the BI, making calls to the Postgres DB, aggregating numeric data, and automatically associating data models at the time of row creation.

Instead of using Django for both back and frontend, I use DRF to layout an API that ReactJs can pull data from. Easy to setup, well documented, and works seamlessly with React.

django에서 api를 만드는데 최고의 framework라고 생각합니다. 아직은 tutorial 수준의 class base view, function base view 수준으로 사용합니다.

하지만 현재 진행중인 프로젝트의 심화로 REST framework를 심도있게 다룰 예정입니다.
