Hello! This article presents an open-source Flask Starter that implements the authentication layer in two flavors: a classic email/password check and Github SignIN via Flask-Dance library. The sources can be downloaded from Github and based on the permissive license, used in commercial projects or eLearning activities. For newcomers, Flask is a leading backend framework used to code from simple, one-page sites to APIs and complex eCommerce solutions.
This free product is built on top of a simple and colorful Bootstrap design that provides a minimum set of pages, dashboard widgets, charts, and user profile pages.
✨ Product Highlights
- ✅ Modern stack: Flask & Bootstrap UI
- ✅ DB Tools: Flask-Alchemy ORM, Flask-Migrate
- ✅ Github OAuth via Flask-Dance
- ✅ Docker Scripts
- ✅ Free Support (eMail & Discord)
The product can be started in a local environment using the Docker setup shipped with the sources via a single line typed in the terminal.
$ docker-compose up --build
Once the above command is finished, the app should be up & running in the browser.
✨ OAuth via Github & Twitter
This authentication method is optional and becomes active once the app detects the OAuth secrets in the
.env file. For instance, if
GITHUB_SECRETS are provided, on the Sign IN page the Github authenticator becomes visible.
