Hi, we're constantly exporting data out of our database. We have python scripts that accept parameters and then export and zip up the shapefiles files. From our dashboard, I'd like to put a form where we could select a type and then hit a button, this would then pass the parameter to my python script and create the shapefile for download. 

 

Why I can program in JS, Python, PHP and Node, I have not been able to get the python working on our server. I know there is Django, Flask, and others, but I'm not sure which one would be the best choice to work with ArcPy. 

 

I noticed the documentation is also all over the place, is there a cookbook or instructions that demonstrate this concept? I found the thread Exposing-Arcpy-Python-Script-to-Web but that was 8 years ago, anything newer and more complete?
