Dealing with Kindle for PC/Mac 1.19 and KFX in calibre
Starting with version 1.19 for most books Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac use the new KFX format, which is incompatible with calibre.

These books will appear in a subdirectory of the "My Kindle Content" folder, will import into calibre as "AZW" format, and will fail to convert with the error: "KFXError: This is an Amazon KFX book. It cannot be processed."

The following descriptions apply both to Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac unless one mentioned explicitly.

python - Uploading and Downloading Files with Flask - Stack Overflow
A code sample is worth a thousand words, so here's a simple one I put together that allows the user to upload a text file, runs it through a function called transform (which is where the function from your conversion program would slot in -- mine just replaces = with , throughout the file), and sends the results back to the browser.
