Explore a Flask example. Learn about library use, server setup, MongoDB interaction, and language syntax. Learn about the GET command for the quote list and individual quote, then create a "random" endpoint to get a random quote.
- [Instructor] Now let's direct ourselves…toward the Python example.…You can find the code for this section…in the exercise files directory.…We'll explore the code and get started with code changes.…At the top of the script,…we're performing the needed imports.…The first three lines are specific to using Flask,…then there's the BSON utility…used for formatting Mongo database responses.…OS gives us some handy functionality…related to the operating system,…and we'll import a random number generator for use in a bit.…Once the imports are complete,…we define the app as a Flask object…using the test database.…
The API, using the API library,…and create a Mongo object…for accessing the database directly.…Additionally, before we get started,…we'll set up a parser to handle arguments…passed in with a request.…We'll see how that works when we cover write operations…in a later video.…Because Python and Flask are object oriented,…the structure here is designed around creating classes…and then accessing them.…At the most outer level is the QuoteList class.…
