"Cloud Solution to Write ,Run, Store python program and much more!!"

What do you like best?

In the dashboard, it shows the required information. For example - CPU usage, recent files, console used. Lots of flexibility to use python console. User can choose python IDE or ipython. Each of them have several versions. It also has the database creating and liking facility for the python which makes it unique. It has the feature of jupyter notebook. In the "task" section there are 2 kinds of automated task system that user can use. One is Scheduled task which are scripts that will run every single day at user specified time to do scraping websites, or test server is running or not. The second automated task is "Always-on tasks" which are the scripts that are kept running all the time, and restarted if they crash. User can build web apps, upload files to run. So, PythonAnywhere is a great resource for programmer and programming team.

What do you dislike?

File storage quota is relatively low. Some new and relatively less used library function is not available. only command-line feature is available, problem while running a .py file.

"Deploy python applications in few clicks "

What do you like best?

Pythonanywhere makes simplicity its best: having very little experience with Web hosting, I managed to get my app up and running in few minutes.

Being able to try it for free, with a limited account, was a big plus: once I understood what my needs were, I was able to decide whether to upgrade to a paid account or not

What do you dislike?

The Web interface is not the most straightforward: it takes quite some clicks around to understand where things are located and what is core in managing your website

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes I need a python app running on the fly, for scraping or to support the interview process. Pythonanywhere lets me do it very quickly and with little to none setup

What Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Best Cloud Environment for Running Python "

What do you like best?

Setting a proper development environment can be a hassle but PythonAnywhere can help you with that. If you are thinking about a Python interpreter online you are wrong: not only will do that for us, since also includes different boilerplates on several frameworks that will speed things up. In addition to providing an incredibly reliable and easy-to-use service, PythonAnywhere also offers the best support out there. I emailed them with an issue I had, and they responded within a few minutes. My problem ended up not being related to PythonAnywhere at all, yet the support person was kind enough to help me nonetheless, and ended up solving my problem. PythonAnywhere has restored my faith in customer support. Also, it's really easy to scale. You pay for a number of "Workers" for your web app (to handle requests), or CPU seconds for code that you run outside a web app, and you can get more workers or CPU seconds by upgrading your plan any time.

What do you dislike?

The pricing can be a bit much if you use it extensively. There is no WebSocket support and obviously you can only use Python on the server side.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PythonAnywhere is really amazing. Almost the entire python stack is available The infrastructure and ease to work with PythonAnywhere is amazing. I was playing with Web2py and was curious how difficult it would be to deploy. PythonAnywhere couldn't have made it much easier. Took under 10 minutes to get it up and running.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to deploy sites written in Python and it was super easy to deploy our sites using PythonAnywhere.

Decent performance.

Lack of proper guides and tutorials. Very different from other cloud providers.

Use this if your application runs on Pure Python. Hard to maintain if it has other dependencies.
