New Project Setup

When you create a new Flask project, here is what you need to do:

  1. Open the New Project wizard in PyCharm
  2. Select ‘Flask’ as the project type/template
  3. Select your virtual environment as the project interpreter
  4. Create the project
  5. Create a new Git repository (each project should be its own repository)
  6. Copy the contents of gitignore into a file called .gitignore, and add this to Git
  7. Download the latest to your project's Git repository, edit it to load your project (see TODO comment), and add it to Git
  8. Create an initial Git commit
