    Dive into the world of the Flask microframework to develop an array of web applications

    About This Book

    Structure, compose, and build powerful Flask HTML-based applications and JSON/XML-based APIs using advanced application design patterns
    Integrate third-party Flask extensions for tasks such as social authentication, sending emails, and interacting with databases and cache layers
    Build a series of Flask applications of increasing complexity

    Who This Book Is For

    If you are a Python web developer who has developed basic Flask applications and now wants to build a series of more complex web applications, then this is the book for you.

    What You Will Learn

    Use the virtualenv Python package to effectively isolate your development environments
    Convert a simple one-file Flask application into a more full-fledged multi-package application
    Integrate Flask-Login for simple user authentication, Flask-WTF for forms, and Flask-SQLAlchemy for database interactions
    Explore URL routing and dispatching in a blueprint structured application
    Create your own signals and consume them within your application
    Learn to leverage Werkzeug, the WSGI library that powers much of Flask
    Implement custom exceptions for handling non-20x response codes
    Write your own CLI tools for administrative and development tasks of your Flask application using Flask-Script/Click
    Build your Flask extensions to encapsulate reusable behaviors across your applications
    Integrate your application with open source JavaScript-based graphing libraries to create simple data visualizations

    In Detail

    Flask is a small but powerful web development framework for Python. Though Flask is termed a micro-framework, it is no way lacking in functionality; there are many extensions available to Flask which helps it to function at the same level as other large frameworks such as Django and Ruby on Rails.

    This book will demonstrate how to develop a series of web application projects with the Python web micro-framework, and leverage extensions and external Python libraries and APIs to extend the development of a variety of larger and more complex web applications.

    The book will start by explaining Python's Virtualenv library and how to create and switch between multiple virtual environments. You'll first build an SQL database-backed application, which will use Flask-WTF, Flask-SQLAlchemy, Jinja templates, and other methods. Next you'll move on to a timeline application, built using concepts including pytest-Flask, the Blinker package, data modelling for user timelines, exception handling, and creating and organizing CLI tools.

    Moving on, you'll discover how to implement a photo timeline application where you'll explore topics such as writing and running celery tasks, API error handling and testing, and Werkzeug middlewares.

    Finally, the book walks you through creating an application which fetches data from GitHub and stores it locally. You will also learn how to install and configure Flask-Click extension.

    Style and approach

    This book covers how to effectively use the Flask micro-framework to develop a series of web applications. Each chapter focusses on the development of an application increasing in complexity with easy steps to follow.
