I'm making a very small scale app that will have less than 20 users and maybe 100 megabytes of data total stored on it. That app would involve basically uploading and downloading a bunch of compressed text files > than 1MB big (map files for a game).
I read the pythonanywhere flask tutorial and while it proved helpful, the part about database made my head ache. Do you think I could only rely on databases for stuff like storing passwords and just put the map files directly on disc to serve them staticly? I'm sure there is a bunch of issues with this, but privacy of said files and scalability almost don't matter in my case, and keeping things simple helps me to be motivated to get stuff done.
If you have a better idea please share.
