Hello! This article mentions the latest features added to Volt Bootstrap 5, an open-source seed project powered by Flask. The project has been updated to provide OAuth sign-in using Github, refactorized codebase, and faster execution in Docker. For newcomers, Flask is a powerful backend framework used to code secure and powerful full-stack apps in no time. Thanks for reading!

Adding OAuth sign-in to an existing web app improves the security, and might bootstrap the registration process.

โœจ How to use the product

Being an open-source starter, the fastest way to use or play with the code is to access the public repository (available on GitHub) or use GIT command-line tool to clone the sources. Once the sources are downloaded, Django Datta Able can be started via Docker (using a single line) or using the classic manual build.

This time, the Docker setup will be used, as presented in the project README.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Step 1 ย - Download the code from the GH repository (using GIT)
$ git clone https://github.com/app-generator/flask-volt-dashboard.git
$ cd flask-volt-dashboard
๐Ÿ‘‰ Step 2 ย - Start the APP in Docker
$ docker-compose up --build 

Once the above command is finished, we should be able to access the app in the browser:

โœจ OAuth for GitHub

This feature is automatically enabled on the login page if the Github secrets (GITHU_ID, GITHUB_SECRET) are provided in the .env file. If the secrets are valid, the login page exposes a GitHub Icon on the login card to inform users that this sign-in option is available.

# Sample '.env' file (truncated content)

# True for development, False for production
DEBUG=True

# If present, the SignIN exposes the Github Login Button
GITHUB_ID= SOME_GH_ID_HERE
GITHUB_SECRET= SOME_GH_SECRET_HERE
