What is Flask?

Python microframework
Flask doesn’t require external libraries. It was created as an easy-to-use web framework that prioritizes simplicity and the speed of development.
Microframework for building scalable platforms
Flask is genuinely a lightweight framework when there is need to do integration in a quick and straightforward way.
Highly efficient web framework
Developers find Flask as a valuable tool because gives them flexibility. It is a more accessible framework for new developers since you can build a web application quickly using only a single Python file.

Why do we use Flask?

Flask allows businesses to launch their web platforms in the fastest possible way while still keeping them secure and modern-looking.

Rapid development
If your web project must be developed really quickly to have a chance to succeed, say no more. Flask gives developers all they need to create sound web experiences efficiently. Functionalities like RESTful request dispatching, fast debugger, built-in development system, and support for secure cookies make the development process super-efficient and safe from errors.
Allows startups to test their ideas at low cost
As a software house with many startup projects in our portfolio, we know that new businesses rarely need complex projects with many features. Most usually, they need to test their idea, verify the business model, as well as gather feedback, attract users and investors. Flask allows them to build an MVP version but, at the same time, gives a strong foundation for further development and product expansion once the idea is proven to have potential.
High versatility
No matter if your project is just a commercial website, SaaS, blog, or anything else, Flask gives you the freedom to create unique experiences for many different purposes. The versatility is a result of what Flask is generally, but also of a large community of enthusiasts that create various extensions and easy-to-do integrations with external systems.
Perfect framework for innovative projects
The minimalistic nature of Flask means that there are very few boundaries for developers and designers. It gives complete control over the development process with modular design and many possible ready-to-go extensions, which can function as application features independently.
Easy deployment on cloud platforms
Applications built in Flask can be very quickly and easily deployed on the most popular clouds, such as AWS and Google App Engine. That’s a fantastic advantage for everyone who aims to utilize cloud services and wishes to do it asap.
Simplicity ensures scalability
One of the reasons Flask is so popular among developers is that it’s really easy to learn. It’s also similar to some other frameworks (Sinatra, Express.Js). As a result, it gives entrepreneurs a much better chance to find (or train) developers if they’re suddenly needed. For example, if you’re planning to extend your product and need extra coding hands, you won’t have to spend that much time and money on recruitment compared to more complex frameworks and languages.


Questions people ask about Flask...

Flask is undoubtedly one of the best frameworks for smaller projects with a limited and well-defined scope and all types of one-offs. As a framework that prioritizes development speed, it allows businesses to launch their products significantly faster than with other technologies. At the same time, it still offers extensive customization and room for expansion if it’s needed.

Most of the time, if you plan to build a web platform quickly and efficiently, Flask will be the right choice. However, there always are other options, and we will still need to get to know your idea before we make a tech stack decision. So, before choosing, we’ll get to know your business and industry, discuss your project in detail, and ask all the necessary questions to determine the final answer that suits your needs.

It very well might be better. Flask and Django are both very popular among companies and developers. They’re just different and each of them works better for specific types of projects. You can be certain that we’ll consider both options for your project and we’ll choose the right one that suits your requirements. And if you’d like to read more about Django, click here.

Flask is highly flexible and customizable. It doesn’t force much on developers and becomes a great hub for creativity and creating unique experiences. Depending on your product’s requirements, our developers can pick and choose a perfect set of plugins, extensions, and other components to keep the solution perfectly functional and lightweight at the same time.

Flask is usually chosen as a framework for projects that must be developed in the shortest possible timeframe, so we always keep that in mind. During our product workshops, we analyze the client’s business, discuss requirements, and design the best (and the shortest) possible roadmap for the project that will lead us to success. Of course, there are no universal solutions, so we still need to spend some time on analysis. Rushing is never a good option in software development. You can read more about our process here.

Thanks to its performance Flask is ideally suited for big platforms. The best examples of it are Facebook and Pinterest. On top of that, it’s getting more and more extensions and support from its enthusiastic community, making it more versatile and expandable every year. And, as we’ve mentioned before, Flask makes it easy to find or train new devs, so it’s relatively simple to extend the team if needed.

Of course. We’ll take care of your web app and keep it in the best shape possible, as well as implement updates and changes according to your needs and market standards. As your partner in technology, we’ll make sure you don’t need to worry about that side of your business. And, if you wish to build your own team, later on, you should have no problems with assembling a group of Flask specialists. What’s crucial is that they won’t have any trouble picking up our work because we take pride in writing secure and clean code.

In our case, the minimum budget for a project in Flask is 25 000 EUR. Of course, the exact cost depends on your specific requirements, so please contact us if you want to know the estimation.
