I am following the tutorial here.
My file looks like this:
from flask import Flask app = Flask(__name__) def main(): return "Welcome!" if __name__ == "__main__": app.run()
python app.py and get the following:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "app.py", line 1, in <module> from flask import Flask ImportError: No module named Flask
I do have flask installed. I was thinking it’s a $PATH issue. I don’t really know where to begin as far as troubleshooting goes.
which flask gives me:
which python gives me:
Any help is much appreciated, there are other similar issues out there but those solutions have not helped. Happy to answer any questions. Thank you.
Answers to questions:
Q. Which Python version? A. Python 2.7.10
Q. How did you install Flask? A. pip install flask
before run your app.py you need to activate your server by this command
It looks like that you are using linux, if you are using ubuntu
try: (similar for other linux distributions)
sudo apt-get install python-flask
It helped me install many packages that pip fails to install.
app package and
run.py file need to be in the same directory level.
app templates __init__.py venv run.py
Above folder structure should fix.
pip install all necessary packages into virtual enviroment (
venv in my example)
You can try to uninstall and to reinstall it again(you can follow this link for more detaile) :
You can take anaconda and there you can make enviroment for every version of python .Anaconda is getting very easy from this link:
Then you can open terminal and pip install flask (if you are on windows) or conda pip install flask .
I recommand to use python3.5 not python 2.7 .
if you are on Python 3, try installing flask with
pip3 install flask
and if you fail (you are likely to get an command prompt error as below)
'pip3' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
py -3 -mpip install flask on windows
this command installs flask module on python 3, and then you could run your script.
worked for me!
Python 3 :
pip3 install flask
Python 2 :
pip install flask
