7:00 Building Python Web Applications with Bottle

  • Bottle is a lightweight web framework for building web applications. Python is an excellent language for web programming due to its flexibility and high-level functionality. Web frameworks can make programming web applications much simpler because they connect many of the components necessary for a robust web interface.

    While some web frameworks attempt to provide everything, others try to stay out of the way while taking care of the important, difficult to implement issues. Bottle is a Python framework that falls into the second category. It is extremely lightweight, but also makes it easy to develop applications quickly.

    • Learn how to get started using Bottle to quickly build web applications in Python.
