Re: [PLUG] Questions re: Ansible and web2py

Flask was easier to learn and simpler to use for my purposes. I tried Django and Turbogears and felt like each was a step down in abstraction: Django >= Turbogears > web2py* > Flask > Werkzeug.

1) I'm not a web developer aside from some html ~15 years ago and recently discovering bootstrap, so it was easier to learn from the bottom up, implementing each element of the framework (e.g. template engine, ORM, form library) as I identified a need for them.
2) Django automatically creates that full project folder with templates and administrative interface which is great unless your project is simpler than that. Flask worked better for coughing up some json or displaying information which were my first projects.

* I'm guessing on web2py based on what I've seen. Also, their book does look awesome.
