I'm trying to understand if I'd receive any benefit from using
Static Files under the
Web section for my Flask app.
I have around five page views that have a full screen background image, which I've managed to reduce to small sizes. Currently, the background images are just in the
static/images directory of my Flask app for whichever route they are part of, so I guess served via Flask.
Would these background images still be considered served "straight off the disk" since they are hosted on PythonAnywhere?
Or would moving these to use the
Static Files feature be better?
I don't quite understand the difference, appreciate any insight.
