Deploying Flask apps on
pythonb5 (0)

I've been working on a link shortener using Python and Flask, and I noticed that apps hosted on run on the dev server (as they would, considering there is no other server set up). However, I know that the dev server is not supposed to be good for production apps, so I was wondering whether there will be any problems hosting this app on

For reference, the link shortener works by taking form data from a POST request, and storing the link and its corresponding link in a database.

There shouldn't be any problems with hosting your app on (although sometimes's servers do go down or fail to start)
Good luck with your app!
