Flask(-Twisted/Gunicorn) microframework for microservices with Prometheus and Sentry support.

The goal is to remove most of the boilerplate necessary to start a simple HTTP application.
This provides:

* Sane arguments (`--host`, `--port`, `--debug`, `--log-level`)
* Support to have a production ready uwsgi container (`--twisted` or `--gunicorn`)
* Prometheus support with default metrics (`flacon.metrics`: See [prometheus_flask_exporter](
* Optional sentry support if the `SENTRY_DSN` env var is set.
* If you have a 'static' directory in your module, just put a favicon.ico inside!

## Installation

pip install flacon

# To use a production ready wsgi server install one of the following extra requirements
pip install flacon[twisted]
pip install flacon[gunicorn]

## Quick-start

from flacon import Flacon

flacon = Flacon(__name__)
app = # This is a flask.Flask() app.

def index():
return 'Example'

def main():

if __name__ == '__main__':
