Backport of Flask 1.0 new click integration.

Project Description


Flask-CLI is a backport of Flask 1.0 new click integration to Flask 0.10. Do not install this package if you use Flask 1.0+.


Flask-CLI is on PyPI so all you need is:

pip install flask-cli


Initialize the extension like this:

from flask import Flask
from flask_cli import FlaskCLI
app = Flask('myapp')

def mycmd():

def myctx():
    return {'myvar': 'value'}

Import from this library instead of flask.cli:

from flask_cli import FlaskGroup


Documentation is readable at or can be build using Sphinx:

pip install Sphinx
python build_sphinx


Running the test suite is as simple as:

python test
