Understanding *how they work* is not going to be simple. Web frameworks
are big, complex pieces of software.

Being *able to use them* can be simple. Here's the "Hello world" example
for Cherrypy:

import cherrypy
class HelloWorld(object):
     def index(self):
         return "Hello World!"
     index.exposed = True


I doubt Flask is simpler than that.
