In case anyone like this design, we can start the app with just a few lines typed in the terminal - instructions copied from the README file saved on Github.
Clone the sources
$ git clone https://github.com/app-generator/flask-dashboard-volt.git $ cd flask-dashboard-volt
$ # Virtualenv modules installation (Unix based systems) $ virtualenv env $ source env/bin/activate $ $ # Install modules - SQLite Database $ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
Start the app
$ # Set the FLASK_APP environment variable $ export FLASK_APP=run.py $ $ # Start the application (development mode) $ flask run
Once the app starts, we need to create a new user and authenticate it. By default, the app redirect guests users to the login page to Sign IN.
