Python Flask on the Pi
To view a live video overview of what you’ll be building go here. For this Python Flask project I used a Raspberry Pi/B+, a fresh Raspbian Stretch image which was fully updated and upgraded, a virtual environment, Python3.X, MySQL , and the Python Flask framework. This was a beginner flask introduction project that uses a Bootstrap for a richer UI. After completing this project, I went to the Flask website and competed their full tutorial.
My GitHub link contains my working project source code at: timcarl/rpi-3-flask-website if you want to clone it. I first watched Brad Traversy’s You-Tube Flask tutorial. Great content and instruction. I had to make several corrections in the code for it to work. I highly recommend going over to the Flask website, grab a coffee, and read and work their tutorial in full. Flask does an excellent job at explaining the Flask project code.
There are a number of resources on the web for Flask instruction. A few top recommendations are;
- The Flask Mega Tutorial
- The Flask website (mentioned above already with link)
- Brad Traversy’s Flask Tutorial
