The What

What is the tl;dr of the tool? How does it differ from the description of its category, Application Framework?

Flask is a simple, Python application framework which allows for fast back-end web development through its "micro" mentality.

The Why

Why use this tool over an alternative?

Flask strips away everything extra outside core functionality. By doing so, the application is less bloated and extra functionality can be added gradually. This structure can be a disadvantage for huge applications, but allows for quick development.
