Using the Python SDK with the Flask Web Framework

I received from a member of our fine community on how to make the Python SDK work with the Django web framework. I haven't worked with Django, but I do work with the Flask web framework, which is very bare bones compared to Django, but has a rich extension ecosystem. In this short screencast, I demonstrate a very simple web application that allows you to connect to a BIG-IP, view the pools and pool members configured, and add, modify, and view iRules.

Note: this app is for demonstrating how to use the SDK in a web framework only. It does not implement any security features for protecting the traffic in transit or managing the BIG-IP user credentials. Clone the project to explore and learn how the SDK or Flask works, but please DO NOT implement this as is in a production environment.
