About the project

As you might have inferred from the above, this project is based on Flask. /app hosts the Flask app. In it:

  • app/ has the high level Flask setup.
  • app/ does rendering (url maps, views).
  • app/ has logic to read/process notes. The db is actually the filesystem :)
  • app/js-src has Javascript and Typescript sources.
  • app/templates are Jinja2 templates.
