// 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?

All dependencies are installed by using pip install Flask. We encourage you to use a virtualenv. Check the docs for complete installation and usage instructions.

~ Where are the docs?

Go to http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/ 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 pytest testing tool:

$ pytest

Details on contributing can be found in CONTRIBUTING.rst

~ Where can I get help?

Either use the #pocoo IRC channel on irc.freenode.net or ask on the mailinglist: http://flask.pocoo.org/mailinglist/

See http://flask.pocoo.org/community/ for more resources.
