Hi, a second question please...
Concerning security, does one have to depend on extensions to gain full security, or is Flask enough... I am asking this question because a developer can stop maintaining his extension and apps relying on it gets buggy.

Secure a web app is not an easy job but Flask helps a lot regarding this sensitive topic.
When your application uses a public module it might be a good idea to check a few relevant metrics:

  • The number of opened issues
  • Date of the latest commit

Also, you can open a discussion on StackOverflow/Reddit and get answers from other coders with a similar concern.

Usually, I'm checking the new modules by following this short checklist.

P.S. If you are using Github, feel free to use Flask Tutorial to get answers related to Flask.
