Quickstart

  1. Import with from flask_ngrok import run_with_ngrok
  2. Add run_with_ngrok(app) to make your Flask app available upon running
# flask_ngrok_example.py
from flask import Flask
from flask_ngrok import run_with_ngrok

app = Flask(__name__)
run_with_ngrok(app)  # Start ngrok when app is run

@app.route("/")
def hello():
    return "Hello World!"

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run()
