Flask-Now is a Flask Application Generator/Build-Tool runs via CLI

What is Flask-Now

Since Flask is commonly used in kickstarting a project, developers shouldn't waste their time with creating folders like static/css, static/js, configuration, controllers, models etc. Aim of Flask-Now is auto generating necessity folders and files according to your architectural pattern and semi-automatically installing desired flask extension. Since Flask is very flexible microframework, it may fit many architectural pattern. Currently following patterns can be auto generated using Flask-Now:

Supported Patterns

Flask-Now supports two different patterns:

simple

  • It is a very simple flask application structure for very small applications
/your_project_folder
    venv
    run.py
    config.py
    models.py
    requirements.txt

bp (Known as blueprints)

  • As suggested in official tutorial, Flask Now has a similar folder structure which is called as bp:

/your_project_folder
    venv
    run.py
    requirements.txt
    /project
        __init__.py
        /blueprints
            /index -> an example blueprint
                __init__.py
                controller.py
                forms.py  
        models.py
        config.py
        /static
            /css
                style.css
            /js
                script.js
        /templates
            index.html

How to use

Requirements

  • Python 3.x
  • Virtualenvironment
  • pip3

Let me explain this project with an example. Assume that we want to create an Flask Application called flaskr

GNU/Linux - OSX

Install

  • Install flask-now with pip to your global environment, this will add an executable file to your /bin with the name flask-now which is the runnable application:
sudo pip3 install flask-now

Usage

  • Go to the folder you wish to create the project:
cd my_development_folder
  • Create the app! Let's assume that we want to create an app named 'flaskr' with simple pattern with flask-wtf and flask-sqlalchemy installed
flask-now flaskr simple -e sqlalchemy wtf

  • That's it. Now activate the virtualenv and run the project:
cd flaskr && source/venv/bin/activate && python run.py
  • As you can understand from the example we drop Flask keyword while installing flask extensions to our project.

  • Some examples which may confuse you:

    • Flask-Rest-Jsonapi -> rest-jsonapi
    • Frozen-Flask -> frozen

Uninstall

To uninstall : sudo pip3 uninstall flask-now

TODO

  • Adding more architectural patterns.
  • Adding more options for configuration file.
  • Adding smart code generation according to desired extensions.(for example if you install Flask-SqlAlchemy, sample model, imports and db configurations will be ready)

RoadMap

  • Generate architecture for rest api's via using Flask-RESTPlus planned version: 0.3.0. New architectural pattern 👍
  • Adding flask-admin via using Flask-Admin planned version: 0.4.0. New architectural pattern 👍
  • Decide if application will be renamed as flask-up, maybe both will be used while calling from console. Naming proposal which is started under this reddit post. Not planned yet.

ChangeLog

  • 0.2.1 project recreated.
  • 0.2.2
    • Thanks to this issue which is created by c-w, flask-now perfectly works on Windows. 👏
    • RoadMap and ChangeLog added.
    • Minor addition: flask-now waits for confirmation to create your project if given project name exists as folder.
