In this blog post, I will show you how to convert a Python console app to a Web App using Flask.
Flask is a web development framework for Python that gives the capabilities to convert a console app into a Web App.
Using Flask, we can take a Python app running in a console and run in a browser.
To install flask, we use the following command.
pip install flask
Below is a basic Flask application that runs a simple Python code in the browser.
from flask import Flask app = Flask(__name__) @app.route("/") def hello(): return "Hello World!" if __name__ == "__main__": app.run()
When we run the code, we will use the flask webserver to view the app using our browser.
In our case, the webserver URL is.
When I click on the URL, I can see my program is running.
I can also use a more sophisticated example of a console app that generates a number.
Below is the code I am using.
import random import string from flask import Flask app = Flask(__name__) @app.route('/') def rannum(): x =random.randint(500000,9000000) y = str(x) return y if __name__ == '__main__': app.run()
The result is shown below.
