This is an application that lets users upload files through the web provided that they already have an account.

I wrote/I'm writing this application in order to learn python web development with Flask.

Things learned in this project (random order)

  • Flask - a micro web framework
  • how to use a template engine (Jinja2)
  • the unittest module in stdlib for testing
  • mock - mocking objects and monkey patching for isolation tests
  • SQLite3 database
  • flask-KVSession for managing the sessions on server side
  • a little bit of JS for the dynamically adding upload fields

Note: this application is almost the same as bottle-upload, just the framework differs
