Great article. I’m the same way, don’t have the discipline to sit through something like LPTHW. For beginners I’ll suggest hosting on Heroku. They have great guides on their support site and you won’t have to think about all that process management. They’re still free if your project only needs one worker (low traffic, no task queues or such).

Also check out Google's appengine and AWS, both have free tiers. I think AWS has support for Flask. GAE was quite steep a learning curve but I managed to get a Django testapp running on it. I want to try AWS next.

Specifically, AWS Beanstalk.

yeah they recently got all the requirements.txt stuff right - approved!
