// Flask //
web development, one drop at a time
~ What is Flask?
Flask is a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug
and Jinja2. It's intended for getting started very quickly
and was developed with best intentions in mind.
~ Is it ready?
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.
~ What do I need?
Jinja 2.4 and Werkzeug 0.7 or later.
`pip` or `easy_install` will install them for you if you do
`pip install Flask`. I encourage you to use a virtualenv.
Check the docs for complete installation and usage
~ Where are the docs?
Go to 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
tests/ folder. To run the tests use the
`py.test` testing tool:
$ py.test
~ Where can I get help?
Either use the #pocoo IRC channel on or
ask on the mailinglist:
