Writing the form's back end using Flask-WTF.
- [Narrator] In the last video we installed Flask WTF.…In this video we'll create a form.…In order to make a web form using Flask WTF…we need to do two things.…First we need to set up a back end…where we define the form's fields.…Second we need to set up a front end…where we display the form's fields to the user.…Let's set up the back end first.…Flask WTF let's us define forms in Python,…but where should we write this code?…We already have routes.py.…This files maps URLs to functions.…
Let's not clutter it up with unrelated code.…Instead let's create a new file named forms.py…and write the form there.…Then open up forms.py and add the following code to it.…First we import a few helpful classes from Flask WTF.…The base form class, a text field,…a password field and a submit button.…Next we create a new class named SignupForm…inheriting from the base form class.…
And then we create each field we want in the form.…Since this is a sign up form…there are fields for the first name, last name,…e-mail, password, and a submit button.…
The need for talented developers is greater than ever before. A basic grounding in a framework as simple, powerful, and easy-to-learn as Flask—a Python micro framework—can help launch your programming career. Get a basic grounding in the fundamental concepts of web development, as well as the hands-on experience required to successfully build web apps with Flask, in this course with Packt trainer Lalith Polepeddi.
It starts with turning your computer into a modern development machine. Then learn everything you need to know about Flask: models, views, controllers, web templates, forms, validation, and API interactions. Lalith shows how to apply these concepts and develop a powerful database-backed Flask app, including a full authentication system. Finally, Lalith shows how to extend the app's functionality by integrating it with third-party APIs. When you finish this course, you will be fully equipped to build your very own custom web apps with Flash.
