Creating your First App on Linux with Python and Flask

Whether playing on Linux or working on Linux there is high chance you have come across a program written in python.

In this tutorial I will take you through how I built a simple application which displays useful information like memory usage per process, CPU percentage etc using python and a micro framework called flask.
