Error Running Flask latest beta
Guys, I am having a problem getting the minimal flask app running on the latest beta, iOS11.2.1.
The code below. It works under py 2.7 in the beta. I remember an error I had before was with the debug param. But this is correct now. I did a pip install of fllask(full restart etc) to see if that would help. But the same error.
I always seem to have problems getting started with flask :(
Any help appreciated
from flask import Flask app = Flask(__name__) @app.route('/') def entry_point(): return 'Hello World!' if __name__ == '__main__': app.run(debug=False)

@Phuket2 Any particular reason you're not using the bundled version of Flask? There's no need to install anything to run the script you've posted, and it works fine here...
@omz , As far as I can tell I am using the pre installed version of Flask. When it failed, I just tried to pip install it. It didn't work so I pip remove 'ed it. I have looked though my site packages folder and I have no folder named flask, si I am assuming it's using the shipped version. I have done hard restarts on Pythonista also

@Phuket2 It seems that Flask is importing
jinja2, and you have a version of that in your
site-packages, possibly one that only works on Python 2. Try removing
site-packages, then restart Pythonista.
@dgelessus , thanks that was the problem.....Not sure why my brain goes blank. I should have looked for that
@dgelessus , oh I can see where it all went wrong now. I pip installed flask-restful, that also installs flask and jinta. I have been able to re-install flask-restful and delete the folders in the site-packages and have it working now. Thanks again.
