I’m doing a sample ecommerce site for a web dev course I am in.
I got into JAMStack recently so I decided to use it as a way to build my site, but I am not sure how to use the backend.
I know I can use Flask and Hugo servers separately and have an nginx reverse proxy but I want to serve hugo directly through flask.
from flask import Flask, send_from_directory app = Flask(__name__) @app.route('/') def index(): return send_from_directory('static/public', 'index.html') @app.route('/<path:filename>') def static_files(filename): # Prevent adding "index.html" to paths of HTML, CSS, JS, and image files if not filename.endswith(('.html', '.css', '.js','svg', '.jpg', '.png', '.gif')): filename += "/index.html" return send_from_directory('static/public', filename) if __name__ == '__main__': app.run(debug=True)
This is my starting code, does anyone have any advice on whether this is a good idea or should I use reverse proxy or any other method?
