Hello, I have a very simple question I hope. I know python, but I'm brand new to using it with flask on the web. My flask_app.py has:
from flask import Flask from homepage import homepage app = Flask(__name__) @app.route('/', methods=['GET', 'POST']) def a(): content = homepage() return content
... and my homepage.py has:
from flask import request form = """ <form method="post" action="/">What is your name?<input type="text" name="name"><input type="submit"></form><br> """ def homepage(): name = "" if request.method == 'POST': name = request.form['name'] name = "Your name is " + name + "." return form + name
My question is, how can I store the variable name in memory without: 1. Creating a database 2. Passing it with a <form> post/get
Is there any way to store them globally even after clicking through a link to another .py file.
Maybe cookies? Maybe something simpler that just exists in Flask?
