Alva is a nanoblog application built using the Flask Python microframework.

This is a customized application based on the basic flaskr tutorial, styled using Twitter's Bootstrap CSS framework.

What have I added to the tutorial app?

  • Detailed pages for each post
  • The ability to edit any post
  • The ability to delete any post
  • A public/private option with a view enabled by session login

This application, originally hosted at, is no longer online or being developed. If you want to pick it up, please feel free to fork and send a pull request.

The last finished alpha version of the Flask app was v1.0. v2.0 was intended to be a Django application. The application evolved into the Carboy microblog at, which is still being maintained and developed, albeit slowly.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
