"""The flask object implements a WSGI application and acts as the central
object. It is passed the name of the module or package of the
application. Once it is created it will act as a central registry for
the view functions, the URL rules, template configuration and much more.
The name of the package is used to resolve resources from inside the
package or the folder the module is contained in depending on if the
package parameter resolves to an actual python package (a folder with
an `` file inside) or a standard module (just a `.py` file).
For more information about resource loading, see :func:`open_resource`.
Usually you create a :class:`Flask` instance in your main module or
in the `` file of your package like this::
from flask import Flask
app = Flask(__name__)
.. admonition:: About the First Parameter
The idea of the first parameter is to give Flask an idea what
belongs to your application. This name is used to find resources
on the file system, can be used by extensions to improve debugging
information and a lot more.
So it's important what you provide there. If you are using a single
module, `__name__` is always the correct value. If you however are
using a package, it's usually recommended to hardcode the name of
your package there.
For example if your application is defined in `yourapplication/`
you should create it with one of the two versions below::
app = Flask('yourapplication')
app = Flask(__name__.split('.')[0])
Why is that? The application will work even with `__name__`, thanks
to how resources are looked up. However it will make debugging more
painful. Certain extensions can make assumptions based on the
import name of your application. For example the Flask-SQLAlchemy
extension will look for the code in your application that triggered
an SQL query in debug mode. If the import name is not properly set
up, that debugging information is lost. (For example it would only
pick up SQL queries in `` and not

Variables parts in the route can be specified with angular
brackets (``/user/<username>``). By default a variable part
in the URL accepts any string without a slash however a different
converter can be specified as well by using ``<converter:name>``.
Variable parts are passed to the view function as keyword
The following converters are possible:
=========== ===========================================
`int` accepts integers
`float` like `int` but for floating point values
`path` like the default but also accepts slashes
=========== ===========================================
Here some examples::
def index():
def show_user(username):
def show_post(post_id):
An important detail to keep in mind is how Flask deals with trailing
slashes. The idea is to keep each URL unique so the following rules
1. If a rule ends with a slash and is requested without a slash
by the user, the user is automatically redirected to the same
page with a trailing slash attached.
2. If a rule does not end with a trailing slash and the user request
the page with a trailing slash, a 404 not found is raised.
This is consistent with how web servers deal with static files. This
also makes it possible to use relative link targets safely.

def request_context(self, environ):
"""Creates a request context from the given environment and binds
it to the current context. This must be used in combination with
the `with` statement because the request is only bound to the
current context for the duration of the `with` block.
Example usage::
with app.request_context(environ):
The object returned can also be used without the `with` statement
which is useful for working in the shell. The example above is
doing exactly the same as this code::
ctx = app.request_context(environ)
The big advantage of this approach is that you can use it without
the try/finally statement in a shell for interactive testing:
>>> ctx = app.test_request_context()
>>> ctx.bind()
>>> request.path
>>> ctx.unbind()
.. versionchanged:: 0.3
Added support for non-with statement usage and `with` statement
is now passed the ctx object.

The :meth:`teardown_request` functions get called at the very end of
