I've spent a bit of time recently extending the new flask based backend I'm using on

The main areas of improvement is around image and thumbnail handling and refactoring the database models to allow for sucking in content from sites which use atom feeds with custom fields (ie: goodreads).

I'm continuing to enjoy working with python, flask, sqlalchemy and jinja2. I feel like my understanding of the framework has really come along and I'm confident that things I used to consider to be major work I can throw together very quickly.
