Django vs Flask

I want to create a simple web app that will allow users to sign in order something that will be sent to someones email. Which is better?

1 Answer

Flask would be great for this sort of thing. It's minimalistic, lightweight, and your file tree can be as simple as you want. Django, on the other hand, is very good for big projects, as it has many handy built in features. However it's a lot heavier and your file tree has to follow specific guidelines for it to function properly.

For your project I recommend doing the Learn Python Track, followed up by the Learn Flask Track, and that should give you ample knowledge for building simple web-apps with Flask.

Happy coding!
