Blask is a blogging engine based on Flask. Blask uses Markdown syntax to create and render the contents of blog posts.

Blask uses the Jinja2 template engine to render the web templates.

To install Blask, use pip:

pip install blask

or download the source code:

git clone https://github.com/zerasul/blask/

Later, you need to create a settings.py file:

templateDir = "templates"
postDir = "posts"
defaultLayout = "template.html"
staticDir = "static"
title = "Blask | A Simple Blog Engine Based on Flask"
errors= { 404: "404"}

For last, to Run Blask, use the next Code:

    from blask import BlaskApp
    import settings

    if __name__ == '__main__':
        b = BlaskApp(templateDir=settings.templateDir, postDir=settings.postDir
                  , defaultLayout=settings.defaultLayout,
              staticDir=settings.staticDir, title=settings.title, errors={404:'404'})
        b.run()

Also, you can use a environment variable to set the settings:

   export BLASK_SETTINGS=settings

You can use the Blask Command Line Tool to run the site:

   blaskcli run --port 4444 #sets the port to 4444
