Lightning apps is simply organized Python

Lightning is a distributed, modular, free, and open framework for building all AI applications where the components you want, interact together. The concept of Lightning apps was designed to help you focus on the what you care about, and automate the rest. The Lightning framework can be used for any type of AI app, from a simple demo to a production pipeline. We encourage you to either try to migrate your existing workflows to Lightning and try to enhance them with other features and functionalities that will allow you to streamline your development process and share your AI apps!

We are looking forward to getting your feedback and improving the Lightning apps experience!
