In this video, learn about Jinja2 and Flask. The author shows you how to set up a Flask server; how to use templates; and how to respond to simple API requests.
- [Instructor] The last package that I wish to discuss…in this chapter is Flask, a leading web microframework.…With this password, the Flask author suggests…that their package realizes a minimalistic approach…to implementing web applications,…namely web servers that respond to structured queries.…I like Flask for the simplicity,…for it's straightforward programming interface,…and for it's clear documentation;…however, the package does not quite scale up…to production servers that need to entertain heavy loads,…but it's very good for prototyping.…
In this video, we make a simple Flask server,…that when given a margin date,…returns one of our stereographs taken on that date.…We cannot run Flask within the Jupyter notebook,…but we use the notebook…to write out a separate battle script,…and we run it from the shell.…Let me import all the packages used in this chapter.…As you can see,…I have already started up a Python module…with code to make stereographs,…which I've taken from the last few videos.…The Python magic file will write itself out…
