Can you suggest a simple setup to get a basic webapp started that will include a server-side component as well?
(I’d like to explore creating a simple app where a lot of different users could open the page, log in, and presented with a list of items, associate some value with a given item that has not yet been assigned a value by someone else (imagine a pot-luck lunch sign-up sheet). That sort of thing. Some db access/storage required on the server-side.)
In the past I’ve used Python + Bottle.py (tiny, lightweight web framework for Python) for that sort of thing, but no JS. Bottle.py comes with its own dev web server, but one might also use gunicorn behind nginx from what I recall.
Thank you for any guidance.
