Convert Python Console App to Web App With Flask

In this blog post, I will show you how to convert a Python console app to a Web App using Flask.

About Flask

Flask is a popular microweb framework for Python, renowned for its simplicity and flexibility.

Ideal for small to medium web applications, Flask provides developers with the tools to build robust applications quickly and efficiently.

Unlike heavier frameworks that prescribe a specific way to handle every element of your application, Flask leaves many choices up to the developer, allowing for a high degree of customization.

It supports extensions that can add application features as if they were implemented in Flask itself, ranging from object-relational mappers, form validation, upload handling, various open authentication technologies, and more.

This makes Flask incredibly adaptable to the developer’s needs, fostering a lightweight, yet powerful approach to web development.
