Gentelella Bootstrap Admin Template

This project integrates Gentelella with Flask using:

Flask-gentelella also comes with a robust CI/CD pipeline using:

  • The Pytest framework for the test suite (see the tests folder).
  • A PostgreSQL database (optional; see below for installation instructions).
  • Travis CI (automated testing)
  • Coverage to measure the code coverage of the tests.
  • Selenium to test the application with headless chromium.
  • A Dockerfile showing how to containerize the application with gunicorn, and a Docker image available on dockerhub, and integrated to the CI/CD pipeline (see instructions below).
  • A docker-compose file to start Flask-gentelella with nginx, gunicorn and a PostgreSQL database.

Here is an example of a real project implemented using Flask-Gentelella:

This project shows:

  • how back-end and front-end can interact responsively with AJAX requests.
  • how to implement a graph model with SQLAlchemy and use D3.js for graph visualization.
  • how to implement a workflow automation system using Vis.js.
  • how to use Leaflet.js for GIS programming.
  • how to use Flask APScheduler to implement crontab-like features.
