web development, one drop at a time

~ What is Flask?

Flask is a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug
and Jinja2. It's intended for getting started very quickly
and was developed with best intentions in mind.

~ Is it ready?

It's still not 1.0 but it's shaping up nicely and is
already widely used. Consider the API to slightly
improve over time but we don't plan on breaking it.

~ What do I need?

Jinja 2.4 and Werkzeug 0.7 or later.
`pip` or `easy_install` will install them for you if you do
`pip install Flask`. I encourage you to use a virtualenv.
Check the docs for complete installation and usage

~ Where are the docs?

Go to for a prebuilt version
of the current documentation. Otherwise build them yourself
from the sphinx sources in the docs folder.

~ Where are the tests?

Good that you're asking. The tests are in the
flask/testsuite package. To run the tests use the
`` file:

$ python

If it's not enough output for you, you can use the
`--verbose` flag:

$ python --verbose

If you just want one particular testcase to run you can
provide it on the command line:

$ python test_to_run

~ Where can I get help?

Either use the #pocoo IRC channel on or
ask on the mailinglist:
