A "Baby Tornado" to aid in Python server development

Why?
Since my last post, I've been highly focused on Tensorflow projects at home and at work.  In the process of running Tensorflow behind an API, I've needed to make code changes to the "secret sauce" (business logic) that stands before Tensorflow and actually provides it with its data.  This could be in the pipeline of multiple Tensorflow models chained together, image manipulation, working with data that gets outputted from the model, or whatever other reasons.  Unfortunately, it is often slow and wastes a bunch of time to constantly restart the whole server (including reinitializing Tensorflow for 20 or 30 seconds), especially when you simply made a typo or used the wrong variable name or something like that.

Besides the Tensorflow work, I've been involved in many blog-worthy pursuits since my last post but simply haven't had time to write about them.  (In fact, I meant to write this last week, but forgot.)  Anyway, at the end of June, right before my previ…
