Flask Codebase

The Python code is a simple Flask project with a simple routing, no database, or other dependencies. The goal of this starter is to help programmers code faster a Flask/Django project by reusing the "development-ready" design for a new project or enhance the UI of a legacy project. To compile the project Python3 should be properly installed and accessible via the terminal. To see this Flask project running locally, please follow up this simple set up:

1# - Clone the sources

$ # Clone the sources
$ git clone
$ cd flask-soft-ui-free
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2# - Install dependencies

$ # Virtualenv modules installation (Unix based systems)
$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate
$ # Install requirements
$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

3# - Set up environment and start the project

$ # Set the FLASK_APP environment variable
$ export
$ # Run the Template
$ flask run
$ # Access the UI in browser:
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Once the project is compiled successfully, we should see the presentation page running in the browser:
