Fork 0

geistesblitze was a small web application I created to accompany an article for the German Linux Magazin in 2014 about Flask, when the release of version 1.0 was supposedly approaching.

Flask 1.0 was actually released four years later, and since version 2.0 that was released in 2021, I wanted to turn it into a modern single page application, but the options to achieve this never convinced me.

I didn't want to separate such a simple application into a backend and a frontend and add a whole ecosystem (Javascript) to accomplish the task.

I recently discovered htmx and geistesblitze2 shows how to integrate Flask and htmx and achieve a single page application, without having to write a single line of Javascript.
