MySQL vs PostgreSQL Schema changes benchmarks
View gist:1620133
The basic idea here is to substantiate the claims made by this square post:
In PostgreSQL, and MySQL (MyISAM and InnoDB) I create millions of rows and then add
and remove columns and add and remove indexes. For columns without defaults this is
basically free in PostgreSQL and O(n) in MySQL. For adding indexes its at best O(n)
everywhere, but with PostgreSQL it claims not to do any locking that would otherwise
prevent table interaction.
Also, PostgreSQL has _awsome_ documentation (it has real examples!). I always get

nginx, flask, and file downloads
View about.txt
Okay so here's the setup:
[-] The primary server API is exposed via Flask (Python) and all static files, including all html, css, js is served by nginx.
[-] Python is exposing an API at url<file_id>, where file_id is a database id for the file that we're interested in downloading.
1. User wants to download a file, so we spawn a new window with the url '/api/download/<file_id>'
2. Nginx intercepts the request, sees that it starts with /api/, and then forwards the request to Flask, which is being served on port 5000.
3. Flask routes the request to its download method, retrieves the pertinent data from the file_id, and constructs additional header settings to make nginx happy and to force the browser to see the file stream as a download request instead of the browser just trying to open the file in a new window. Flask then returns the modified header stream to nginx
4. Nginx is finally ready to do some work. While parsing the headers for the incoming request, it encounters "X
