What is FMV Stack?

If you are looking for a modern and powerful way to create dynamic web applications, you might want to consider using the FMV Stack, which stands for Flask, Vue.js, and MySQL.

What is FMV Stack?

  • Flask: A lightweight and flexible Python web framework that provides the backend logic and RESTful API for our app.

  • Vue.js: A progressive and reactive JavaScript framework that handles the frontend user interface and interaction with the backend API.

  • MySQL: A reliable and scalable relational database system that stores and retrieves the data for our app.

There are many benefits of using FMV Stack for web development, such as:

  • Simplicity: Flask and Vue.js are both easy to learn and use, with clear and concise syntax and documentation. They also have a large and active community that provides support and resources.

  • Flexibility: Flask and Vue.js are both unopinionated and modular, meaning that they do not enforce a specific way of doing things and allow you to choose the tools and libraries that suit your needs. You can also easily integrate them with other technologies and services.

  • Performance: Flask and Vue.js are both fast and efficient, with minimal overhead and high scalability. They also support asynchronous and concurrent programming, which improves the responsiveness and user experience of the app.

  • Compatibility: Flask and Vue.js are both cross-platform and cross-browser compatible, meaning that they can run on any operating system and device, and work with any modern web browser.

How to build a web app with FMV Stack?

To build a web app with FMV Stack, we need to follow these steps:

  1. Set up the development environment and install the required dependencies.

  2. Create the database schema and tables using MySQL.

  3. Design the backend API using Flask and Flask-RESTful.

  4. Implement the database operations using SQLAlchemy and Flask-Migrate.

  5. Test the backend API using Postman or curl.

  6. Create the frontend project using Vue CLI and configure the settings.

  7. Design the frontend components using Vue.js and Bootstrap-Vue.

  8. Implement the frontend logic using Axios and Vuex.

  9. Test the frontend functionality using the browser.


In this post, I have given you an overview of what FMV Stack is, why you should use it, and how to build a web app with it. I hope you have found this post useful.
