Introduction to Flask webserver

This article is part of a series on Flask.

In this section we will learn about Flask, a simple and lightweight web framework written in Python.

We will create a simple web server, then develop it to add different types of pages (list and detail) based on a simple SQLite database.

These instructions are for a Windows PC running Python 3.x. The instructions should apply to Linux, including Raspberry Pi, except that the method for installing the Python Flask module will be different. Check how to install modules for your flavour of Linux (eg using apt-get for Debian).
