Flask, the lightweight Python web framework, is popular thanks 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 new recipes on cutting-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 learn 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 confidently write Flask applications and scale them using standard industry practices.

  • Explore Flask 1.0.3 and Python 3.7, along with useful insights into microservices
  • Get the most out of the powerful Flask framework and maintain the flexibility of your design choices
  • Write cleaner and maintainable code with the help of sample apps
