Creating a Python Web App with Heroku

I decided to create a simple web application with Heroku to help improve my Python skills.

This application uses beautifulsoup to scrape Linux distribution websites for .torrent files of their ISOs.

Once the torrents are downloaded they can be accessed via HTTP using simplehttpserver running on a Heroku web dyno.

The application also records its access times in Heroku’s Postgres service using SQLAlchemy.

You can see the site in action here and check out the source code at my github account here.
