We will need to install a virtual environment where we can install Flask.
- [Narrator] Welcome back to Learning Flask.…In the last video, we installed a database.…In this video, we'll install Flask.…We'll use virtualenv to install Flask.…Virtualenv is a tool that creates isolated…Python development environments on your computer.…So why is this useful?…Say you see a Python library that you want to try out.…If you installed this library systemwide,…you run the risk of messing up other libraries…you've installed.…Instead, you can use virtualenv to first create…an isolated environment and then safely install…the library inside this environment…without affecting the rest of your computer.…
You can then keep this virtual environment around…for more development work or simply delete it…when you're finished trying it out.…Either way, your system remains organized…and clutter-free.…To install virtualenv, type pip install virtualenv.…I already have virtualenv installed,…so that's why it's returning this output.…If you get an error here, it's likely…that pip is not installed on your computer.…So to install pip, go to this website…
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.
