Getting Started

We built the framework of our website using Python, HTML, and CSS.
We wrote a database using Postgres with 4 tables for services, appointments, groomers, and reviews.

Required Packages

* tornado
* boto3
* os
* queries
* markdown2

Required Libaries

* import tornado.ioloop
* import tornado.web
* import tornado.log
* import queries
* import markdown2
* import os
* import boto3

Issues Encountered

* Heroku - Heroku was potentially the biggest issue, with running our .sql file
  and having it load directly into our Heroku database.
  After several formatting attempts we were able to get it to run in Heroku using 
  'heroku pg:psql'
  There were a number of deployment erros that required the removal of the pipfile.lock,
  the pip environment, and everything had to be reinstalled into the pip virtual environment.
  After deployment, the app wouldn't run and this was resolved by going through 
  each Heroku log line by line.  
  This resulted in lost get submission and code reviews from the team.
* CSS - Getting the CSS to work the way we needed and wanted it to work.
* GitHub - Being the first time to use the advanced features of GitHub and working 
  as a group caused a few dilemmmas getting everything to push, pull, and merge properly.
* Databases: 
  1) Figuring out the right data types to use for each column.
  2) Sharing a local database to github. 
* Contact Us modal window: 
  1) Figuring out what python needs to successfully fill out and submit a form. 
  2) Making it work on 'any page' (since it's in the footer) 
  3) Getting it to send me an email!

Example Code

client = boto3.client(

ENV = Environment(
    loader=PackageLoader('company-app', 'templates'),
    autoescape=select_autoescape(['html', 'xml']))

def send_email (email, comments):
    response = client.send_email(
      'ToAddresses': [''],
