Flask allows plugins that can incorporate framework functionality
Flask is a Python-written micro web platform. It is known as a microframework since no specific resources or libraries are required. It does not have an abstraction layer, type validation or other elements of databases that have common features from preexisting external libraries. However, Flask allows plugins that can incorporate framework functionality. There are extensions to object-related mappers, type validation, upload management, different open authentication technologies, and other similar tools associated with the application.
- Built a POC for a client to compare Django and Flask. Flask is a lightweight framework for Python.
- Created a Slackbot to test the framework.
- Used WSGI and Jinja2 as a templating engine.
