Being a performance engineer, I do not have development experience. It is apt to develop a utility for performance engineers. I am learning Python and Flask. DO Hackathon motivate me to develop a small tool.

How I built it

This utility written in Python, Flask, and HTML. DO App platform helped me to gain knowledge how the app is deployed into production. I never worked in production environment, I executed performance tests in production. But I never got a chance to work as DevOps or Developer in my career.

To show all the commands and its description, I created a JSON file. Using Python and Flask, it fetches the relevant command and its description using the HTTP method.

I learned about Waitress server, build and run commands, Flask, CSS, and Jinja during this development.
