// Flask //

because sometimes a pocket knife is not enough

~ What is Flask?

Flask is a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug and Jinja2. It's intended for small scale applications and was developped with best intentions in mind.

~ Is it ready?

A preview release is out now, and I'm hoping for some input about what you want from a microframework and how it should look like. Consider the API to slightly improve over time.

~ What do I need?

Jinja 2.4 and Werkzeug 0.6.1. easy_install will install them for you if you do easy_install Flask==dev. I encourage you to use a virtualenv. Check the docs for complete installation and usage instructions.

~ 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 can I get help?

Either use the #pocoo IRC channel on or ask on the mailinglist:
