How It's Made
We used Google's Python protocol buffer API to create a package that reads and writes Powergate's gRPC messages. This package is used in a strawman Flask application that other Python developers can use to create Filecoin applications. Flask is the most popular micro-framework in the Python space and provides the simplest structure and patterns to hand-off to other developers. We also used Flask to create a REST and sockets-based API for handling long-running Filecoin tasks.
