Last week, I showed off how I exported my Goodreads data to SQLite, and you can see the data at data.rixx.de. I use Datasette to make the data available to browse, query, plot, export, etc. Datasette is a brilliant project, because it makes data available to you in an interactive way, and allows you to share original data and analysis in a transparent bundle.
I think I deployed this Datasette to data.rixx.de in about five minutes – but that's because I have plenty of templates for the deployment of Python web applications, and I only copied two files and executed a couple of commands. Since I vividly remember being incredibly frustrated more often than I can count when I didn't have these templates, let me share the process with you.
