Making Websites with Flask/Introduction

What is Flask?


Flask is a microframework for making websites with Python. It's super easy to get started. However, Flask does not have features like authentication or database connecting built-in, unlike other web frameworks. However, it is designed to make programming these easy.

Flask is a backend web framework which means that it handles everything behind the scenes. This means that Flask handles the user requests in the server.

Flask is used by LinkedIn and Pinterest.



Flask was created by Austrian programmer Armin Ronacher in 2010.
