Building a Minimal Flask Application in one command!

Hans Maulloo (~hans)




Flask developers will know that a minimal flask application requires only a few lines of code, but what if there was a tool that facilitates this task even more?

In this session, I will talk about a Python Package and a command-line tool that helps build a Hello World Flask application simply by running a command from your terminal. At the time of this writing, it supports a few optional features such as adding bootstrap CDN, initializing an sqlite3 test.db and containerizing the application using Docker, among others.
