Structure

I did what most people recommend for the application's structure. Basically, everything is contained in the app/ folder.

  • There you have the classic static/ and templates/ folders. The templates/ folder contains macros, error views and a common layout.
  • I added a views/ folder to separate the user and the website logic, which could be extended to the the admin views.
  • The same goes for the forms/ folder, as the project grows it will be useful to split the WTForms code into separate files.
  • The models.py script contains the SQLAlchemy code, for the while it only contains the logic for a users table.
  • The toolbox/ folder is a personal choice, in it I keep all the other code the application will need.

Setup

Vanilla

  • Install the required libraries.

    pip install -r requirements.txt

  • Create the database.

    python createdb.py

  • Run the application.

    python run.py

  • Navigate to localhost:5000.

Virtual environment

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv venv
venv/bin/activate (venv\scripts\activate on Windows)
pip install -r requirements.txt
python createdb.py
python run.py

Deployment

Configuration

The goal is to keep most of the application's configuration in a single file called config.py. The one that is included is basic and yet it covers most of the important stuff.

there is a working Gmail account to confirm user email addresses and reset user passwords, although in production you should't include the file if you push to GitHub because people can see it. The same goes for API keys, you should keep them secret. You can read more about secret configuration files here.
