Flask is a lightweight WSGI Python web application framework. It is designed to make getting started quick and easy, with the ability to scale up to complex applications.
In this piece we want to look at some cool projects that have been written in Flask.
1. Flask Website
Flask's own website is written in Flask. This is majorly a documentation site, built as a static site and hosted on netlify. It however is very fast yet receives alot of traffic so can act as a good barometer for flask as a framework. Check it out here.
An even more complex site type however is a forum. We have atleast one open source one written in Flask, known as FlaskBB.
FlaskBB is a Forum Software written in Python using the micro framework Flask.
Currently, following features are implemented:
- Private Messages
