Build state-of-the-art web applications quickly and efficiently using Flask and related technologies with Python 3
Flask, the lightweight Python web framework, is popular due to its powerful modular design that lets you build scalable web apps. With this recipe-based guide, you'll explore modern solutions and best practices for Flask web development.
Updated to the latest version of Flask and Python 3, this second edition of Flask Framework Cookbook moves away from some of the old and obsolete libraries and introduces recipes on bleeding edge technologies. You'll discover different ways of using Flask to create, deploy, and manage microservices. This Flask Python book starts by covering the different configurations that a Flask application can make use of, and then helps you work with templates and learn about the ORM and view layers. You'll also be able to write an admin interface and get to grips with debugging and logging errors. Finally, you'll grasp a variety of deployment and post-deployment techniques for platforms such as Apache, Tornado, and Heroku.
By the end of this book, you'll have gained all the knowledge you need to write Flask applications in the best possible way and scale them using standard industry practices.
If you are a web developer who wants to learn more about developing scalable and production-ready applications in Flask, this is the book for you. You'll also find this book useful if you are already aware of Flask's major extensions and want to use them for better application development. Basic Python programming experience along with basic understanding of Flask is assumed.
