After creating a blockchain from scratch, I thought that I'd kick it up a notch and make my very own social media network.
This was going to require a lot more time and effort and a ton more coding. So with coffee in hand, some rusty python skills, and years of social media use under my belt, I was ready to begin.
Soo many tutorials later, I had a good idea of what I needed to do and it seemed surprisingly simple. I found this video by freeCodeCamp.org particularly useful.
First, I checked the version of python on my computer
python3 --version then installed a few packages using pip:
- I had to install a virtual environment to keep track of packages
once inside myenv, I installed flask.
pip install flask
Pretty straightforward. Now it was time to write some code, but it will have to wait until the next installment #irl. Happy Coding!
