What is Flask(Python)? - Web Development
Hi, guys so in this post we will be seeing what is flask? why flask? flask vs Django and a lot so let's get started
What is Flask?
Flask is a web framework. This means flask provides you with tools, libraries, and technologies that allow you to build a web application. This web application can be some web pages, a blog, a wiki, or go as big as a web-based calendar application or a commercial website. Flask is Micro-framework
What is a Micro Framework?
A Micro Framework is normally a framework with little to no dependencies on external libraries.
As mentioned flask is an easy to learn and simple framework you can easily build websites like e-commerce very easily without a lot of codes.
Flask vs Django 😀
Here we go with another python framework vs flask. Django is a full-stack web framework, whereas Flask is a micro and lightweight web framework. The features provided by Django help developers build large and complex web applications. On the other hand, Flask accelerates the development of simple web applications by providing the required functionality.
Starter Flask App
- Flask is a good option for starters and I would personally recommend Django if you are building an e-commerce site.
