comment CartoDB (PostGIS) near function (distance) points to polygons
If it is returning degrees then your projection is in degrees, most likely wgs84. You'll either need to reproject to a different projection that uses meters or feet in its coordinate system, or cast the points as geography. The geography based system returns meters, but the calculations are slower.

comment How to use Python for online GIS?
Not necessarily, but depending on the size of the data your hosting and the types of operations you're running a database could help. PostGIS has built in functions for finding distance, intersects, etc and is a good way to store and serve up data. For example, it can respond to a query with a geojson of your spatial data, and you can display that geojson directly in a Leaflet or Openlayers map.

How are they conflicting? How are they supposed to be interacting?

comment Open Layers 3 geoJSON not loading
Another solution for those who don't have full admin rights on their server is to rename the .geojson file to .js.

comment How to get Geography data to GeoJSON in PostgreSQL?
What version of PostGIS are you using? If you have a really old version (older than 1.5.0) St_AsGeoJSON doesn't support geography, only geometry. Next thing to check, is PostGIS and its functions installed into its own schema, and if so, is that schema in your search path?
