Flasknado!

A trivial demonstration of using Tornado and Flask together.

Why?

Tornado is a very powerful and flexible asynchronous HTTP server with support for things like websockets. Meanwhile, Flask is a fantastic web microframework that makes writing web applications fun and easy. Flasknado! then demonstrates how to use Tornado to run a Flask WSGI app to exploit the strengths of both.
