This is done for efficiency reasons and to make it less likely to encounter
memory leaks with badly written WSGI middlewares. The downside is that if
you are using streamed responses, the generator cannot access request bound
information any more.
This function however can help you keep the context around for longer::
from flask import stream_with_context, request, Response
def streamed_response():

yield 'Hello '
yield request.args['name']

def make_response(*args):
"""Sometimes it is necessary to set additional headers in a view. Because
views do not have to return response objects but can return a value that
is converted into a response object by Flask itself, it becomes tricky to
add headers to it. This function can be called instead of using a return
and you will get a response object which you can use to attach headers.
If view looked like this and you want to add a new header::
def index():
return render_template('index.html', foo=42)
You can now do something like this::
def index():
response = make_response(render_template('index.html', foo=42))
response.headers['X-Parachutes'] = 'parachutes are cool'
return response
This function accepts the very same arguments you can return from a
view function. This for example creates a response with a 404 error
response = make_response(render_template('not_found.html'), 404)
The other use case of this function is to force the return value of a
view function into a response which is helpful with view
response = make_response(view_function())
response.headers['X-Parachutes'] = 'parachutes are cool'
Internally this function does the following things:
- if no arguments are passed, it creates a new response argument
- if one argument is passed, :meth:`flask.Flask.make_response`
is invoked with it.
- if more than one argument is passed, the arguments are passed
to the :meth:`flask.Flask.make_response` function as tuple.

"""Generates a URL to the given endpoint with the method provided.
Variable arguments that are unknown to the target endpoint are appended
to the generated URL as query arguments. If the value of a query argument
is ``None``, the whole pair is skipped. In case blueprints are active
you can shortcut references to the same blueprint by prefixing the
local endpoint with a dot (``.``).
This will reference the index function local to the current blueprint::
For more information, head over to the :ref:`Quickstart <url-building>`.
To integrate applications, :class:`Flask` has a hook to intercept URL build
errors through :attr:`Flask.url_build_error_handlers`. The `url_for`
function results in a :exc:`~werkzeug.routing.BuildError` when the current
app does not have a URL for the given endpoint and values. When it does, the
:data:`~flask.current_app` calls its :attr:`~Flask.url_build_error_handlers` if
it is not ``None``, which can return a string to use as the result of
`url_for` (instead of `url_for`'s default to raise the
:exc:`~werkzeug.routing.BuildError` exception) or re-raise the exception.
An example::
def external_url_handler(error, endpoint, values):
"Looks up an external URL when `url_for` cannot build a URL."
# This is an example of hooking the build_error_handler.
# Here, lookup_url is some utility function you've built
# which looks up the endpoint in some external URL registry.
url = lookup_url(endpoint, **values)
if url is None:
# External lookup did not have a URL.
# Re-raise the BuildError, in context of original traceback.
exc_type, exc_value, tb = sys.exc_info()
if exc_value is error:
raise exc_type, exc_value, tb
raise error
# url_for will use this result, instead of raising BuildError.
return url
Here, `error` is the instance of :exc:`~werkzeug.routing.BuildError`, and
`endpoint` and `values` are the arguments passed into `url_for`. Note
that this is for building URLs outside the current application, and not for
handling 404 NotFound errors.

By default, this function returns ``SEND_FILE_MAX_AGE_DEFAULT`` from

Static file functions such as :func:`send_from_directory` use this
function, and :func:`send_file` calls this function on
:data:`~flask.current_app` when the given cache_timeout is ``None``. If a
cache_timeout is given in :func:`send_file`, that timeout is used;
otherwise, this method is called.
