web development, one drop at a time
Flask is a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug
and Jinja2. It's intended for small scale applications
and was developed with best intentions in mind.
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.
Jinja 2.4 and Werkzeug 0.6.1. `pip` or `easy_install` will
install them for you if you do `easy_install Flask`.
I encourage you to use a virtualenv. Check the docs for
complete installation and usage instructions.
Go to http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/ 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
flask/testsuite package. To run the tests use the
If it's not enough output for you, you can use the
$ python run-tests.py --verbose
If you just want one particular testcase to run you can
provide it on the command line:
$ python run-tests.py test_to_run
~ Where can I get help?
