    If your app is really small/short, you're only fetching crime data and rendering a static image, you can probably do it all with a Cloud Function. This way you don't even need to have nor learn about nor use full web frameworks like Flask, Django, Pyramid, etc. Just raw code plus an HTML template and perhaps a tiny bit of Flask/Jinja2 to render the template.

  • 3 Patterns for Cookiecutter Templates
    4 projects | dev.to | 27 Jul 2021
    Cookiecutter is a command-line utility that creates projects from templates. There's a list of templates maintained by the cookiecutter team and plenty of community awesome lists. It's built with python and uses the jinja templating framework (found in python web frameworks like flask). You can use it to make a template for pretty much anything! All you need to get started is pip install cookiecutter.
  • The Generational Divide in Software Developers

    I don't buy the authors testing argument for a couple of reasons:

    1. Verification is automated - From my perspective, tests predominantly serve to document AND verify the behavior of code. You don't have to follow TDD to buy into the idea that tests serve to verify behavior of the code that was written. Some applies to formal verification of software.

    2. Documentation stays in sync with tests - I'd imagine that any snippet of code is read 2-10x more than it ever changes and tests help with that reading process. Writing tests means you're optimizing for the thing that happens most often AND you are somewhat guaranteed that your testing "documentation" stays up-to-date because as software evolves the tests will need to evolve as well there is an immediate penalty for not updating the tests; there is no corresponding immediate penalty for forgetting to update a specification document. The older a piece of software is the harder it will become to understand: the original developers stop working on it, the documentation becomes stale, context and initial reasoning for certain decisions is lost. In such an environment it's, in my experience, generally easier to make changes to old code bases with lots of testing because generally tests will tell you if there is something you don't understand with nearly instantaneous feedback: write some code, run the tests and it either works or it doesn't.

    Similarly, I don't get the authors argument that code is more illegible than it has been in the past. More modern languages make this as easy as possible to get correct. Take something like Flask [1] written in Python and generally considered to be well-written and compare that to the C code in SQLite [2] which is generally considered to be well-written C and tell me which is easier to understand without any prior knowledge.

    https://github.com/pallets/flask/issues/4027 and https://github.com/pallets/flask/issues/4025 are both about this problem but I'm not confident that upstream knows or cares how people in the real world use their applications.
