Hi Community,


In this article, I will introduce Python Flask Web Framework. Together we will create a minimal web application to connect to IRIS and get data from it.

Below you can find the steps we will need to follow:

  • Step 1 : Introduction to Python Flask Web Framework
  • Step 2 : Installation of Flask module
  • Step 3 : Creation of web application using Flask
  • Step 4 : Use of HTML Templates 
  • Step 5 : Installation of IRIS Python Native module
  • Step 6 : Establishment of a connection with IRIS 
  • Step 7 : Transferring data from IRIS to Flask and displaying it

So Let's start with step 1

Step1-Introduction to Python Flask Web Framework 

Flask is a small and lightweight Python web framework that provides useful tools and features that make creating web applications in Python easier. It gives developers flexibility and is a more accessible framework for new developers since it allows to build a web application quickly using only a single Python file. Flask is also extensible and doesn’t requires a particular directory structure or complicated boilerplate code before getting started.

Hello All,

I have a class method on the DocRepo server that needs to query the data value of a global variable on the Edge server. 

I have looked at the documentation for 'Global Structure,' but I didn't find anything that helped.

Global Structure | Using Globals | InterSystems IRIS Data Platform 2022.1
 

I am able to access this global easily from the Edge server using the $Get function, but I need to access it from the DocRepo server.
