For some reason
app = flask.Flask(__name__, static_folder='public', static_url_path='')
will cause flask-login to return AttributeError: 'RequestContext' object has no attribute 'user', and
app = flask.Flask(__name__, static_folder='public')


can you provide a minimal example?

from flask import Flask, url_for
app = Flask(__name__, static_folder='public', static_url_path='')
with app.test_request_context():
    url_for('static', filename='style.css')

outputs => '/style.css'

I'm having the same problem. It seems to be a flask-login specific issue though. I've created a flask-login bug report maxcountryman/flask-login#51


Should this be closed?


Yes it should
