TableExport + Flask

This project is a simple app demonstrating the use of TableExport and Flask. It includes a sample project that you can use as a skeleton (or template) to get started.


Deploy

Checkout the demo!


Quickstart

First, set your app's secret key as an environment variable.

e.g. add the following to .bashrc or .bash_profile.

export TABLEEXPORT_FLASK_APP_SECRET='something-really-secret'

Before running shell commands, set the FLASK_APP and FLASK_DEBUG environment variables.

export FLASK_APP=/path/to/autoapp.py
export FLASK_DEBUG=1

Then run the following commands to bootstrap your environment.

git clone https://github.com/clarketm/tableexport_flask_app
cd tableexport_flask_app
pip install -r requirements/dev.txt
bower install
flask run

# open browser to `localhost:5000`

You will see a pretty welcome screen.

Once you have installed your DBMS, run the following to create your app's database tables and perform the initial migration.

flask db init
flask db migrate
flask db upgrade
flask run

# open browser to `localhost:5000`

Deployment

In your production environment, make sure the FLASK_DEBUG environment variable is unset or is set to 0, so that ProdConfig is used.

Shell

To open the interactive shell, run:

flask shell

By default, you will have access to the flask app.

Running Tests

To run all tests, run:

flask test

Migrations

Whenever a database migration needs to be made. Run the following commands:

flask db migrate

This will generate a new migration script. Then run:

flask db upgrade

To apply the migration.

For a full migration command reference, run flask db --help.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
