http://mfogleman.webfactional.com/hello/

Modules

Although it is possible for a Flask app to be contained entirely within a single Python module, this project splits different functionality into different modules to facilitate maintainability. Below is a description of each module.

  • __init__.py - Constructs the Flask app object and configures it. Imports the other modules to emulate a single-module application.
  • config.py - Contains the app configuration.
  • forms.py - Contains WTForms Form objects for use in views and templates.
  • hooks.py - Contains Flask and Jinja helper methods.
  • models.py - Contains the database model classes for SQLAlchemy.
  • views.py - Contains the app views.

Running

python main.py
