Prepare your environment


The product is built on top of Flask, a popular Python Web Framework. To build the app, Python3 should be installed properly in the workstation. If you are not sure if Python is properly installed, please open a terminal and type python --version. The full-list with dependencies and tools required to build the app:


Check Python (using the terminal)

$ # Check Python version
$ python --version
Python 3.7.2 # <--- All good


Check GIT command tool (using the terminal)

$ # Check git
$ git --version
$ git version 2.10.1.windows.1 # <--- All good


For more information on how to set up your environment please access the resources listed below. In case we've missed something, contact us on Discord.


Project Structure


The boilerplate code is built with a modular structure that follows the recommended pattern used by many open-source projects. The most important files and directories are shown below:


< PROJECT ROOT >                            # application root folder
    |
    |--- app/__init__.py                    # application constructor  
    |--- app//static                        # Assets Directory: Img, CSS, Javascript, sitemap.xml
    |--- app/templates                      # Jinja2 files
    |            |---<includes>             # Page chunks, components (footer, navigation)
    |            |---<layouts>              # Layouts (default.html)
    |            |---<accounts>             # Authentication Pages
    |            |     |---- login.html     # Login page
    |            |     |---- register.html  # Register page
    |            |
    |            |---<pages>                # Pages
    |                  |---- index.html     # Index page
    |                  |---- about.html     # Simple about page

    |
    |--- requirements.txt                   # Modules and dependencies
    |

Flask Framework

Flask is a micro web framework written in Python. It is classified as a microframework because it does not require particular tools or libraries. It has no database abstraction layer, form validation, or any other components where pre-existing third-party libraries provide common functions.


What is dashboard

In information technology, a dashboard is a user interface that, somewhat resembling an automobile's dashboard, organizes and presents information in a way that is easy to read. However, a computer dashboard is more likely to be interactive than an automobile dashboard (unless it is also computer-based). To some extent, most graphical user interfaces (GUIs) resemble a dashboard - by Techtarget
