Tools: Python, Flask, PostgreSQL, Heroku
Leading up to MLB spring training in 2014, I created a simple web app that provides a countdown to each team’s report dates, first exhibition game, and first regular season game. Once the dates have passed, the app displays how long ago they occurred. The app was written in Python, uses the Flask web framework and a PostgreSQL database, and is hosted on Heroku. Each season since 2014, I’ve updated the underlying database with the appropriate information.
