    ~ What is Flask?

      Flask is a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug
      and Jinja2.  It's intended for getting started very quickly
      and was developed with best intentions in mind.

    ~ Is it ready?

      It's still not 1.0 but it's shaping up nicely and is
      already widely used.  Consider the API to slightly
      improve over time but we don't plan on breaking it.

    ~ What do I need?

      All dependencies are installed by using `pip install Flask`.
      We encourage you to use a virtualenv. Check the docs for
      complete installation and usage instructions.

    ~ Where are the docs?

      Go to for a prebuilt version
      of the current documentation.  Otherwise build them yourself
      from the sphinx sources in the docs folder.

    ~ Where are the tests?

      Good that you're asking.  The tests are in the
      tests/ folder.  To run the tests use the
      `py.test` testing tool:

        $ py.test

    ~ Where can I get help?

      Either use the #pocoo IRC channel on or
      ask on the mailinglist:

      See for more resources.
