    What are some alternatives to Flask and Rocket?
    Django
    Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
    Tornado
    By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
    ExpressJS
    Express is a minimal and flexible node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single and multi-page, and hybrid web applications.
    Node.js
    Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
    React
    Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.

    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.

    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.
