Slightly off topic - would you mind describing how you host and run the python/flask app?

Do you use uWSGI with apache / nginx in front of it? I dabble in python web apps and wanted to get some insight into how other people had them hosted

Its running via gunicorn (socket) behind nginx (proxy). We also utilize celery and rabbitmq for workers (emails, pdf generation etc.) - besides that, nothing too magical. We use fabric+git to allow for quick hot-fixes and new releases.

Thanks for the feedback!

My cofounder Gavin (@geekforbrains) is better suited to answer this - but I know we're not running apache - it's nginx and gunicorn on a rackspace cloud box.
