Flask in Simple Terms
Flask is a micro-framework – a leaner, faster version of a full web application framework – written in Python. It requires no specific tools or libraries, and has no database abstraction layer, form validation, or other components where pre-existing, third-party libraries can provide common functions. Pinterest and LinkedIn are just a few popular applications that feature the Flask framework.
Flask does support extensions for object-relational mappers, form validators, upload handlers, various open authentication technologies, and a few framework-related tools. These extensions are updated more frequently than the core Flask program.
Untold utilizes Flask on new web and mobile applications when applicable. Micro-frameworks are not always a great fit, but they have their use cases. You can count on the Untold team to be forthright on our technical and architectural recommendations for any project, and our tech stack shifts with the needs of the software applications we create.
