Make elsa work with FLASK_APP #32

Flask's new api uses flask run instead of This solves a few problems related to importing under the debug reloader.

It would be nice if elsa supported this as well, so users could switch from plain Flask to elsa by leaving $FLASK_APP as is and just calling elsa freeze.

There would need to be an option to use a custom freezer and options (e.g. base URL). Probably these would be set in app.config. (Maybe flask/frozen flask has this already?)

Related: we should also enable people to use elsa programmatically, something like Elsa(app).freeze().

There is

app.config['FREEZER_DESTINATION'] = path
app.config['FREEZER_BASE_URL'] = base_url

in Elsa, so we can start with that

Let me start with the easy part, enable people to use elsa programmatically. I kinda think it will make the FLASK_APP part easier anyway.

It would also allow the user to modify the freezer once created, i.e.:

elsa = Elsa(app)
