// Flask //

          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?

  All dependencies are installed by using `pip install Flask`.
  We encourage you to use a virtualenv. Check the docs for
  complete installation and usage instructions.

~ 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
  tests/ folder.  To run the tests use the
  `py.test` testing tool:

    $ py.test

~ Where can I get help?

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