Flaskex with PostgreSQL
- Encrypted user authorizaton
- Database initialization
- New user signup
- User login/logout
- User settings
- Bulma CSS framework
To get started with this project yourself, use the following command from Now CLI:
$ now init flaskex-postgresql
Alternatively, create a project, and Git repository, with this example template using the ZEIT dashboard.
Once initialized locally, you will see several
.py files which each correspond to a route in defined in the
now.json configuration file. Each
.py file is an input to the Python Builder which emits a corresponding Lambda for each file.
You will need to add a couple of secrets before deploying.
$ now secrets add flaskex-db-uri 'postgresql+pg8000://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/database'
This example uses
postgresql but you can use any engine supported by sqlalchemy.
$ now secrets add flaskex-secret-key '_5#y2LF4Q8z*Uz]'
This secret key is used by Flask when signing secrets. This can be a randomly generated string.
Alternatively, your new Flaskex app can be automatically deployed and aliased using Now for GitHub or Now for GitLab. Pushing these files to a new repository with a
now.json file in the root, and with either Now for GitHub or Now for GitLab configured for that repository, means your site will be automatically deployed for every push and pull/merge request, and aliased for every push to the default branch!
Included In This Starter
This starter project includes:
/index.pyfile that responds to the
/signup.pyfile that responds to the
/settings.pyfile that responds to the
/logout.pyfile that responds to the
requirements.txtfile that installs dependencies such as Flask, SQLAlchemy, bcrypt, pg8000 (PostgreSQL driver)
- A generated
Pipfile.lockthat ensures exact versions of dependencies to avoid the risk of automatically upgrading packages that depend upon each other and breaking your project dependency tree.
