Con Small community. Difficult to find online docs and examples
Con Very hard to develop projects that are not smaller than 1000 lines
While Bottle is a great framework for building small applications (generally less than 1000 lines of code), it starts getting very hard to manage your application if you want to go even a bit larger than that.
The fact that it follows a single-file distribution model and that it's missing something like Flask's blueprints only make this problem worse.
