How to run python code using an html button (flask)
h

Hello, I have been working on a project recently, and I have ran into a problem.

None of the things I google give me clear answers to what I am asking for, so I just had to come to replit to see who could help me.

Just a heads up, I am kind of a noob at flask, so if im not getting something that is the reason.

Some code samples

or questions

The main question is, why doesn't onclick work, or am I just using it wrongly?

<button onclick("server.py")> Click me </button> 

(server.py)

print("Hello!") 

Its supposed to print "Hello" everytime I click the button, to see if its working (ah yes, test runs). But all it does when I run it, is Hello! then all the flask stuff. Why is this? And is there a solution?

Also, you do not have to use onclick for the answer, I just use that for tests a lot.

Thanks
