Should I use Django or Flask as a python backend for ember?


#1

Hi! I’m trying to decide what should I use for a backend. What are some considerations that I need to be aware of? So far I’m choosing between Django and Flask - which one would be better?

You propably should use one you are most comfortable with.

I am currently converting my OS project written with Django into backend for Ember, and I am having great success with Rest Framework as well as Ember, but I’m still climbing the hill, so chances my opinion will be different when I’m done. :wink:

I am interested in this as well. For my case I think Flask only because I want to use mongodb and not sure if the django-orm is going to add to much overhead when I could use https://github.com/closeio/mongoengine and use flask restful http://flask-restful.readthedocs.org/en/0.3.4/ .

But I could be totally wrong.
