Flask Testing – Unittest and Coverage

Software 
Flask Testing – Unittest and Coverage I have been experimenting with Flask recently. I am interested in learning about test driven development. This looked like a good opportunity to merge the two together. Test driven development is based around writing tests before you write the code. That way you write the code to pass the test, not the test based on the code. There are a few modules I use to test my flask apps.

Me and My Uni Notes

Me and My Uni Notes This post is just a small description of the process that occurs in the background after I finish writing some notes. In future I will give more in-depth descriptions of the code and how everything happens. Markdown I write all of my university notes using Markdown syntax. As a cool side project to my uni work I decided that I would write a piece of software (in Java) that would help me in writing these notes.
