Another app server how-to, this time for an Nginx-backed, REST App server, running flask-socketio for adding real-time as well as HTTP end-points.  This is a useful feature, to be able to take advantage of all the socketio libs popping up for Javascript, Swift, C++ and Java, and therefore iOS and Android.

Here’s the steps to install and configure, Nginx, Python, Flask-SocketIO, and get a very basic REST API up and testable.  This post will not cover hardening or securing a server, see the previous post and cherry-pick the security commands that apply for this setup as well.  Also, this is Ubuntu 14.04 again, but should be adaptable.
