This is the source code for my website, which is currently hosted at andrewgclark.info.
The website is built using the Flask framework for Python. It includes a blog using markdown formatting (hence the project title "blog_md"). I have also added a number of other pages and features, so it's more than just a blog in this form. If you would like to use this as a template, feel free to download or clone this repo. In order for you to serve this application, you will have to first create a couple of extra config files (I have left these out of the repo because they contain sensitive information).
from blog_md import app app.config['SECRET_KEY'] = 'your_secret_key'
from blog_md import app app.config['ENV'] = 'development' app.config['DEBUG'] = True app.config['SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI'] = 'sqlite:///relative/path/to/db' app.config['SECRET_KEY'] = 'dev'
Once you have created these files, you can set up your virtual environment.
While in outer blog_md folder, run
python3 -m venv venv to set up your virtual environment.
Then you can use pip to get the additional packages you need.
For that, just run
pip install -r requirements.txt.
The requirements file is already included in the repo.
Activate your virtual environment by executing
Then just run
python run.py, and your website should be served on local host!
