Web Net Development
This is the my original network development platform. I went with it due to challenges
that Flask presented around getting it to look “Pretty” using Bootstrap. This looked
like the right decision for the time. I would probably recommend Network Engineers using
Flask for web development at this point.
Django LDAP Example
This is a micro-services web setup. It comes very basic and is very easy to get moving. First recommendation - Flask Mega-Tuturial. It is awesome. Well worth the purchase.
