FRANK is a multi-purpose website, which includes a forum and a mailing service. After making a FRANK account, you can use it for all the things in the list below.

  • Fmail: the mailing service
  • Fmedia: the forum

This is my first Flask project, and it wouldn't have been done without these people:

  • @Lost0Soul for helping me fix some errors I was having on the website
  • @tamkerl for helping me in some other stuff on my website
  • @rediar for giving me the idea of using jinja
  • @CoolJames1610 for teaching me how to use pymongo

I would really like it if you guys gave me some feedback.

I am truly fascinated by your website

VulcanWM

Thanks! :) @PlaySoccer

Pizzaz4me

How did you sync the html. css, and python together?

VulcanWM

I used render_template to show the template in flask @PlaySoccer

matthewproskils

@VulcanWM Yes, the flask (python) is the backend while html css and js is the frontend

wantT0befriends

sorry @sojs

Cool!

hello, I love the website you made, I've used it since it came out. I've been programming a website of my own and I am struggling with server-side programming. Is there any possibility that you could help teach me some things about it?

VulcanWM

sure, invite me to the repl and i'll help you as long as it is in python @Kirit0

Kirit0

@VulcanWM https://repl.it/@Kirit0/Testing So I have some knowledge in html css and js but its not pro. Im pretty fluent in pythont tho, and im trying to figure out server side pregraming using django or flask. thank you for the help ^-^

VulcanWM

What do you need help with right now? @Kirit0

Kirit0

@VulcanWM mainly on how to how to save, store, and show information like you do for your thread

[deleted]

frank.vulcanwm.com is (maybe) dead

VulcanWM

It’s repl.it’s problem @AJDevelopment

[deleted]

@VulcanWM yeah i realized that after a while

TanushJha

@VulcanWM did you not like my comment.

TanushJha

GOOD JOB I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT.

VulcanWM

ummm.... @TanushJha

Hello, I was wondering how you got views.py to run first. When I made my project, it wouldn't run app.py, it wold only run main.py.

You can see my project here -->

https://repl.it/@WissamNusair/Chromatin#app.py

VulcanWM

Hey man! I went into your repl and fixed the problem. You just had to import app from app, and then do app.run(host='0.0.0.0', port=8080, debug=True) to run the app in main.py. That is how I do it anyway @WissamNusair

[deleted]

@VulcanWM THANKS YOU A LOT! NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD REPLY!

VulcanWM

I help everyone who needs help. If you need any more help, just mention me or something @WissamNusair

[deleted]

@VulcanWM Ok, time to act professional again, thank you, again.

AlexRamirez2

Awesome project! This is something I'd never do in a million years! I have a few suggestions

  • Enter / new line support for Fmedia bodies
  • Maybe an instant messaging system in Fmedia
  • A way to view your own profile
  • View someone elses Fmail IDs and stuff
  • A way to search for users
  • Reply to threads
  • Friend requests (would be useful for instant messaging)
  • Post downvotes (more controversial)
    Anyways, still a great project! Can't wait to see what FRANK becomes! I wanna be an active user on this site lol.
VulcanWM

Thanks for the ideas man! Do you have discord? @AlexRamirez2

AlexRamirez2

@VulcanWM Yeah, ShibeyV192#6464

Its nice, but can you try to make the mail able to be sent to actual emails?
I came across a user who could do that.

VulcanWM

Yeah I know repl.email. I think you have to pay for having access to that, so I'm going in the free route @ReaperScythe

TerrorbuildLuna

@VulcanWM Could you teach me how to make these cool websites sometime?

amazing

VulcanWM

Thanks man! :) @coolguyamiright

johnnyfrancis

This is not letting me signup.

VulcanWM

What’s the error? @johnnyfrancis

anonymous360c

You're using PYTHON for this?! @VulcanWM

VulcanWM
BobTheTomatoPie

umm why are you so surprised, python is a common language to build databases and other things that go along with web dev. Its not like python only works in the terminal. Notice how there are also a ton of HTML files @anonymous360c

anonymous360c

I know that but why not JS? @BobTheTomatoPie

BobTheTomatoPie

some people know python better than node @anonymous360c

anonymous360c

Hmmm... Ah well. @BobTheTomatoPie

SystematicError

@anonymous360c I'm not sure exactly but I think google uses python Flask framework for some of their backends. There are many more stuff you can do with python like GUIs, Phone apps (like actual apk files), Discord Bots, etc...

anonymous360c

And I think that's one of the reasons google used to be called backpat (btw I use a chromebook with chrome os and a managed account so I can't run PYTHON) . @SystematicError

anonymous360c

Well not without an extension. That would be hard to find. @anonymous360c

How does it save user data, such as username and password?

VulcanWM

I used MongoDB to save everything @LoveTheBears1O1

braxtondb

This is really cool! I would suggest adding comments to threads.

VulcanWM

Thanks! Yeah I thought of that but then didn’t do it just in case my cluster crashed @braxtondb

AstOwOlfo

This website straight outta 2003

VulcanWM

Yep I know @agent9002

AlexRamirez2

Best part is the nostalgia. @AstOwOlfo

dudeactualdev

@VulcanWM I have a website template you could use if u want. I do agree with @oignons so ya.

dudeactualdev

Keep Doing What Your Doing!

VulcanWM

Sure I will! @RyanGardiner1

dudeactualdev

@VulcanWM Thank u!

dudeactualdev

@VulcanWM , also, can I help u redesign the site? It doesn't matter, but I thought I might do good because I'm really good with HTML, CSS, most JS, most PY, some Node.

Baconman321

Maybe, instead of encrypting passwords, make a hash value like a lot of the big companies do.

VulcanWM

Yeah, I probably will in the future @Baconman321

wantT0befriends

umm what is the 'tag' when you send mail?

and when I put a username it says that it doesn't exist even though I used one I saw in the thread

VulcanWM

The tag is the number after the : in the user's username. If you see a user who has made a post, it doesn't have their tag in it, just to be safe. If you check your inbox, your tag will be there @wantT0befriends

wantT0befriends

@VulcanWM So how will you format it? Because it said like type the username and the tag?

or do you just do the tag

VulcanWM

Username : and then the tag, the way it shows in your inbox @wantT0befriends

sojs

Make it so that one stays logged in please.

VulcanWM

Yeah, I haven’t got how to use cookies yet @sojs

sojs

Use local storage: (in js)

Look it up
@VulcanWM

VulcanWM

I’m using Python @sojs

code913

It was a normal day until I saw the Python logo and remembered a weird meme about Pythons XD.
