This is an example of a full web-based application written entirely in Python using modules that the author has developed over the years.
- [Instructor] This is an example from my own toolbox.…This is a short URL application…that I use for my own website.…For example, if I open a new tab here…and I type in j.bw.org, which is my short URL server,…and just LDC, this will take me to a particular page…in my site which I use for my Lynda.com landing page.…And so here I've got a copy of this database system…running on a local server on this demo machine,…so this is not the one that's running on my live server,…so we can play with it a little bit.…
This page here is the back end database of the system.…From this webpage I can add, edit, test and delete URLs.…This code runs on a web server.…So we won't be testing it in Komodo.…This is running on a local server here on this Mac…that I'm recording on.…And it's important to understand…that there's a lot of moving pieces for any web application.…To implement this,…it takes some knowledge of the web server,…in this case it's an Apache web server.…It takes knowledge of, obviously, the language…that you're writing scripts in, in this case Python.…
