run flask in background

To run Flask in the background, you can use a tool called gunicorn, which stands for "Green Unicorn." Here's how you can do it:

  1. First, install gunicorn using pip:

bash pip install gunicorn

  1. Once gunicorn is installed, navigate to the directory where your Flask application is located.

  2. Then, use the following command to start the Flask application in the background using gunicorn:

bash gunicorn -b your_application:app &

Replace your_application with the name of your Flask application file and app with the name of the Flask app variable within your application.

  1. Your Flask application will now be running in the background. You can check the running processes to verify that the application is running as expected.
