get flask version

To get the Flask version, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open your command prompt or terminal.
  2. Navigate to the directory where your Flask application is located.
  3. Activate the virtual environment (if you have one set up for your Flask application).
  4. Run the following command: pip show flask

Explanation of each step:

  1. Opening the command prompt or terminal allows you to execute commands on your computer.
  2. Navigating to the directory where your Flask application is located ensures that you are in the correct location to execute the Flask-related command.
  3. Activating the virtual environment, if you have one set up, ensures that the Flask command is executed within the context of your specific application and its dependencies.
  4. Running the command pip show flask uses the pip package manager to display information about the Flask package installed on your system. This command will provide details about the Flask version, along with other information such as the package's location and dependencies.

Note: The above steps assume that you have Flask installed on your system and that you are using the pip package manager. If you haven't installed Flask yet, you can do so by running the command pip install flask.
