Use of web frameworksWhat is the current thinking on the use of web frameworks for back-end and front-end parts of a game?
I found this thread (https://pyweek.org/d/4062/) which is from 2011 and people seemed to agree it was OK then but I wanted to check some of the boundaries here and whether the thinking has changed.
My specific questions,
1. Is it still OK to use frameworks for the back-end and to host these yourself so that people do not have to get the back-end working on their machines to test the game. This also might be needed to allow the back-end to be shared (for leaderboards, collaborative games etc). Of course the code should be shared.
2. Is it OK for the front end of the core game to be HTML + JS based? I'm thinking here of a Django based solution. The HTML would be generated by the Django templating system but there would be JS logic in there and JS frameworks (like JQuery, Bootstrap, etc).
Unfortunately I can't compete in the February Pyweek because of other time commitments so this is more for future reference!
