INSTALL AND RUN FLASK(PYTHON) ON UBUNTU 19.04 on VpsServer

Flask is a lightweight WSGI web application framework. It is designed to make getting started quick and easy, with the ability to scale up to complex applications. It began as a simple wrapper around Werkzeug and Jinja and has become one of the most popular Python web application frameworks.

after your account becomes verified, create a Ubuntu 19.04 server.

Step #1:
Install python pip and flask by run:
$ sudo apt install python-pip
$ sudo apt install python3-pip
$ pip install -U Flask
$ pip3 install -U Flask

Step #2:
Add your project files on the server (ex. from GitHub using clone command)
in this tutorial let’s use a very simple flask app example that prints Hello, World! and save the app in (ex. /var/www/flask):

$ mkdir /var/www/flask
$ cd /var/www/flask
$ nano app.py
copy below code and paste it in app.py file using CTRL + SHIFT + V keys.

# app.py file

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route("/")
def hello():
    return "Hello, World!"

then press ( CTRL+ X )-> Y -> ENTER.


Step #3:
Run the server by run:
$ env FLASK_APP=app.py flask run -h xxx.xxx.xxx
change xxx.xxx.xxx to your server ip

output:

Serving Flask app "app.py"
 * Environment: production
   WARNING: This is a development server. Do not use it in a production deployment.
   Use a production WSGI server instead.
 * Debug mode: off
 * Running on http://xxx.xxx.xxx:5000/ (Press CTRL+C to quit)
