The aim of this video is to present how to manage cookies in a Flask application.
- [Teacher] Hi, and welcome to the third video…of this section: Usage of Cookies.…In the previous video,…we covered Token Based Authentication.…In this video, we are going to learn…about using cookies in Flask.…we are going to take a look at what are cookies,…what type of cookies exist…and how should we use these.…Then we will review a part of our application…which demonstrates the usage of cookies.…Cookies are pieces of data which travel…between the client and the server.…Cookies first are always sent by the server…towards the client.…Then the client with each request,…sends back the cookie.…
Regardless of platform, you will need to build APIs to serve data between different client applications and endpoints. Good APIs are a necessity for web and mobile projects, especially with the modern, mobile-first approach to development. This course delivers the fundamental knowledge required to enable highly connected interactions between applications via RESTful web APIs. Follow along with Gergo Bogdan and learn how to build up and structure an effective web API that can be used by any client application accessing it over HTTP, using Flask, the Python microframework.
Find out how to implement CRUD operations using SQLAlchemy and MySQL as the data store. Get an understanding of how REST works relative to APIs, and learn how to test APIs written in Python with the support of Flask. Explore token-based authentication and find out how to store passwords securely in your database. Along the way, Gergo introduces best practices and design guidelines when building large applications.
