Web App in Azure Using Bottle


In this blog, I will demonstrate how quickly we can build a Web app in Azure using Bottle. If you are new to Bottle, here is the definition from the website:
Bottle is a fast, simple and lightweight WSGI micro web-framework for Python. It is distributed as a single file module and has no dependencies other than the Python Standard Library.
  • Routing: Requests to function-call mapping with support for clean and dynamic URLs.
  • Templates: Fast and pythonic built-in template engine and support for mako, jinja2 and cheetah templates.
  • Utilities: Convenient access to form data, file uploads, cookies, headers and other HTTP-related metadata.
  • Server: Built-in HTTP development server and support for paste, fapws3, bjoern, gae, cherrypy or any other WSGI capable HTTP server.

To complete this blog, you need to have an Azure account. If you're new to Azure, I recommend reading Introduction to Microsoft Azure.
