Flask Templates - A curated list with projects

Hello Coders,

This article presents a curated list with Flask Templates crafted on top of modern UI kits: Argon, Material Dashboard, Black Design. All projects are actively supported, versioned and the free ones can be downloaded directly from Github under the MIT License.  For newcomers, Flask is a lightweight web application framework written in Python. Sometimes classified as a microframework, Flask provides a lightweight codebase that can be easily extended to become an API, a simple web app, or a complex eCommerce platform.

Thanks for reading! TL;DR;

Flask - Python Web Framework.

What is Flask

Just a short-note for newcomers regarding this popular web framework. Flask is a lightweight WSGI web application framework. It is designed to make getting started quick and easy, with the ability to scale up to complex applications. Classified as a microframework, Flask is written in Python and it does not require particular tools or libraries. It has no database abstraction layer, form validation, or any other components where pre-existing third-party libraries provide common functions.

Compared to his older brother Django, Flask provides a lightweight codebase and more freedom to the developer. This might be a good thing because you have more freedom in terms of app design and structure but in the same time, this freedom might inject problems when your application becomes complex.

Set up PC for Flask

Being a Python framework, Flask requires Python to run and expose his magic. Flask is compatible with Python2, Python3 (the recommended version).

Install Python - To get started working with Python3, you’ll need to have access to the Python interpreter (the console, and related tools and libraries). We can accomplish this in several ways:

  • Download the installer from the official download page.
  • Use a package manager like yum, apt on Linux systems
  • Homebrew for MacOS users.
  • Build Python from sources, a method used by super-geeks.

Install Flask - The easier way is to use PIP, the official Python package manager:

$ pip install Flask

Once the Flask is successfully installed, we can code a simple web application in less than one minute. Just open your favorite code editor and copy this snippet:

from flask import Flask 
app = Flask(__name__) 
 
@app.route('/') 
def hello_world(): 
    return 'Hello from Flask!' 
 
if __name__ == '__main__': 
    app.run() 

After we save the file Python must be called to execute it:

$ python3 app.py
* Running on http://127.0.0.1:5000/

Visiting the URL in the browser, we should see our message served "Hello from Flask".

The code is basically a classic "Hello World" in web development coded with just few lines. Well, our curated list with Flask Templates contains "development-ready" projects crafted with basic modules and deployment scripts.
