Posts not showing up on home page in Flask

<strong>The Goal</strong>

The Goal

I'm creating a Flask website to serve as the UI for a custom bioinformatics pipeline. The way I'm trying to design it is such that the user fills in the pipeline parameters (e.g. Project Name, Data Type, Number of Samples, etc.) in a multi-page form (kind of like the checkout process in online ordering) and then I would like these parameters to be saved to the user's account page as separate "posts".

The Issue

I've been following a Flask Tutorial online (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnDWIZuWYW0&list=PL-osiE80TeTs4UjLw5MM6OjgkjFeUxCYH&index=2) about how to save the "posts" (pipeline parameters) to the user's dashboard by supplying fake or sample "posts" to the dashboard's html template, but nothing shows up at all. What am I doing wrong?

The Source Code

routes.py:

posts = [
            {
                'username': 'claudiadast',
                'date_posted': 'September 22, 2018',

Understanding of Meter Tag in HTML 5

Understanding of Meter Tag in HTML 5

This post explains the HTML 5 meter tag and how to create it

What is the meter tag?

I this article I am explaining the meter tag. The output of both (progress and meter) tags is the same as we will see but there is the difference that actually the meter tag is used to represent a scalar measurement within a known range. The value can be fractional.Examples

Disk uses, the relevance of a query result, the fraction of a voting population to have selected a specific candidate.

What is the difference between the progress tag and the meter tag? Progress bar is used to display the progress of a specific task. Or a progress element represents the completion progress of a task. Whereas the meter tag is used to represent guages.  We can think that a progress tag represents dynamic data whereas a meter tag represents static data.

Note:

  1. According to the W3C, the meter element should not be used to indicate progress, because to indicate the progress we have the progress tag.
  2. The meter element also does not represent a scalar value of an arbitrary range; for example, it would be wrong to use this to report a weight, or height, unless there is a known maximum value.

Syntax

The Meter tag is an inline element, the same as a header, progress and so on.

Attributes

<meter></meter>   

Apart from the Global Attributes and Event Attributes, the meter tag have 6 more attributes as shown in the following table:

The following inequalities must hold, as applicable:

  • min <= value <= max
  • min <= low <= max (if low is specified)
  • min <= high <= max (if high is specified)
  • min <= optimum <= max (if optimum is specified)
  • low <= high (if both low and high are specified)

Note: if you do not specify min or max then the range will be between 0.0 to 1.0 and the value must be in that range.

HTML DOM Meter Object

In the DOM the meter element is defined by METER that represents for HTML 5.

  • How the meter object can be accessed: using the getElementById() method you can access the element.
var x = document.getElementById("[Give id of the meter tag here]");  
  • Create a meter object: You can also create the element dynamically using the createElement() method:
var x = document.createElement("METER");    
  • Meter object properties: The properties of a meter object are given in the following table:

Example 1: This example will show you how can you use a meter element in HTML 5.

  • WebKit/Blink Browser: like Opera, Googe Chrome and Safari
  • FireFox
  • Internet Explorer

1. WebKit/Blink Browser: According to webkit.org, we can have 5 different pseudo classes that are given in the following table.

Example 3:  This example explains how to reset the appearance of a meter element. To reset the appearance we use -webkit-appearance:none;

Example 4: How to render the background container?

According to the preceding table I have described that we can render the container using the -webkit-meter-bar pseudo-class, so to apply the rendering I am using the following code:

meter::-webkit-meter-bar {    
  background: none;     
  background-color: whiteSmoke;    
  box-shadow: 0 5px 5px -5px #00F inset;    
  border: 1px solid #0ff;    
  border-radius: 5px;    
}

Example 5: This example explains how to render the value of the meter element, it means inside the container how to apply the rendering.

According to the table we can render the meter elements using the following pseudo classes:

-webkit-meter-optimum-value  
-webkit-meter-suboptimum-value  
-webkit-meter-even-less-good-value  

Code: I am using the following code:

  1. For -webkit-meter-optimum-value:
meter::-webkit-meter-optimum-value {

    #99EB99 100%    
  );    
  background-size: 100% 100%;    
}   
  1. For -webkit-meter-suboptimum-value:
meter::-webkit-meter-suboptimum-value {    
  box-shadow: 0 5px 5px -5px #999 inset;    
  background-image: linear-gradient(

  1. For -webkit-meter-even-less-good-value:

How to Sending form data to a template on flask

I'm trying to create a login page and have managed to get each separate page working but when you click "Login" it should take you to a profile page and when you click "Register" it should take you back to login. This does not happen and instead comes up with the 'can't reach this page'. How can I use flask to send the data from the template and render a new page?

I'm trying to create a login page and have managed to get each separate page working but when you click "Login" it should take you to a profile page and when you click "Register" it should take you back to login. This does not happen and instead comes up with the 'can't reach this page'. How can I use flask to send the data from the template and render a new page?

Python:

from flask import Flask, request, render_template
import sqlite3
from flask import g

app = Flask(name)

DATABASE = './users.db'

def get_db():
db = getattr(g, '_database', None)
if db is None:
db = g._database = sqlite3.connect(DATABASE)
return db

@app.teardown_appcontext
def close_connection(exception):
db = getattr(g, '_database', None)
if db is not None:
db.close()

def query_db(query, args=(), one=False): #connects html with
cur = get_db().execute(query, args)
rv = cur.fetchall()
cur.close()
return (rv[0] if rv else None) if one else rv

def valid_login(username, password):
user = query_db('select * from User where username = ? and password = ?', [username, password], one=True)
if user is None:
return False
else:
return True

def log_the_user_in(username):
return render_template('profile.html', username=username)

def register_user(name, email, username, password):
query_db('INSERT INTO users (username, password, email, name) VALUES' '(%s, %s, %s, %s)',
(username, password, email, name))

@app.route("/")
@app.route('/login', methods=['POST', 'GET'])
def login():
error = None
if request.method == 'POST':
if valid_login(request.form['username'], request.form['password']):
return log_the_user_in(request.form['username'])
else:
error = 'Invalid username/password'

return render_template('login.html', error=error)

@app.route('/register', methods=['POST', 'GET'])
def register():
if request.method == 'POST':
register_user(request.form['name'], request.form['email'], request.form['username'], request.forn['password'])
return render_template('login.html', error=None)

return render_template('Register.html', error=None)

if name == "main":
app.run()

Html:

<html>

&lt;head&gt;

    &lt;link rel="stylesheet" href="../static/form-style.css"&gt;



    &lt;script&gt;

    function validateForm() {

    var x = document.forms["login-form"]["username"].value;

    if (x==null || x=="") {

        alert("Name must be filled out");

        return false;

    }

    var y = document.forms["login-form"]["password"].value;

    if (y==null || y=="") {

        alert("Password name must be filled out");

        return false;

    }

    }



    &lt;/script&gt;



&lt;/head&gt;

&lt;body&gt;

    &lt;div&gt;

            &lt;form name="login-form"  action="/login" onsubmit="return validateForm()" target="_self" method="POST"  &gt;

                &lt;h2&gt;Login:&lt;/h2&gt;


                &lt;input type ="text" name ="username" placeholder="Username"&gt;&lt;br&gt;

                &lt;input type="password" name="password" placeholder="Password"&gt;&lt;br&gt;

                &lt;input type="submit" value="Submit"&gt;&lt;br&gt;

            &lt;/form&gt;

    &lt;/div&gt;

&lt;/body&gt;
