Flask Request Object

  • In the client-server architecture, the request object contains all the data that is sent from the client to the server.
  • Now we will discuss the Request object and its important attributes
    • Form : Contains the key-value pair of form parameters and their values.
    • Args : It is the part of the URL which is specified in the URL after question mark (?).
    • Cookies : It is saved at the client-side to track the user session.
    • Files: It contains the data related to the uploaded file.
    • Method: It is the current request method (get or post).

Form data retrieval on the template

  • The data filled in this form is posted to the /success URL which triggers the print_data() function.
  • print_data() collects all the data from the request object and the renders the result_data.html file which shows all the data on the web page.
