run persistent py script in background (good for flask)

To run a persistent Python script in the background, particularly for Flask, you can follow these steps:

  1. Import the necessary modules:
import subprocess
  1. Define a function to start the script in the background:
def start_background_process():
    subprocess.Popen(["python", ""], stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE, stdin=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True)
  1. Call the function in your Flask application:
if __name__ == '__main__':

These steps will allow you to run a persistent Python script in the background while using Flask.
