Flask is a web application framework based on Python. Flask is based on the Werkzeug WSGI toolkit and Jinja2 template engine. Pace Wisdom utilizes this framework in our web development projects as even though Flask is younger compared to other Python frameworks, it holds great potential and has gained immense popularity among web developers and our enterprise clients.
Flask was designed to be easy to use and extend. The underlying principle governing Flask is the solid foundation it provides for web applications of differing complexities. Developers at Pace Wisdom have noticed that with Flask they have the freedom to plug in any extension needed in the development process. Also they also have the freedom to build customized modules. AS a Flask development company Pace Wisdom has noticed that this Python based framework is especially good for prototyping. Flask depends on two external libraries: the Jinja2 template engine and the Werkzeug WSGI toolkit.
Built-in development server
Integrated support for unit testing
RESTful request dispatching
Supports secure cookies
Unicode based framework
Additionally, Flask provides more control during the development stage of our projects. It follows the principles of minimalism and allows developers to decide on how they will build new applications.
Flask has a lightweight and modular design, so it easy to transform it to the web framework developers require with a few extensions and without weighing it down
ORM-agnostic: developers can plug in your favourite ORM e.g. SQLAlchemy.
Basic foundation API is nicely shaped and coherent.
Flask documentation is comprehensive, full of examples and well structured. There is also an option to test out a few sample application to really get a feel of Flask.
It is super easy to deploy Flask in production (Flask is 100% WSGI 1.0 compliant)
HTTP request handling functionality
The configuration is even more flexible than that of Django, giving you plenty of solution for every production need.
To summarize, Flask is one of the most polished and feature-rich Python frameworks available. On the support aspect, Flask is backed by a thriving community, first-class extensions, and an refined API. Pace Wisdom adopted Flask for web based development projects as it comes ready with multiple benefits like fast templates, strong WSGI features, thorough unit testability at both the web application and library level and extensive documentation.
