How to perform a jinja2 test for your flask app
#Purpose of this code is to test your flask app for jinja2 rendering issue
#If you have a large database and your jinja2 code can break due to uneven db rows, this will serve the purpose
from flask import Flask, request, session, g, redirect, url_for, \
abort, render_template, flash,send_from_directory
import MySQLdb,json
import datetime
app = Flask(__name__, static_url_path='/static')
app.wsgi_app = ProxyFix(app.wsgi_app)
DATABASE = '#YourDBName'
DB_SERVER = 'localhost'
DEBUG = True
USERNAME = 'root'
PASSWORD = '#password'
import datetime
import urllib
#Mysql Connection Declaration
class SQLconnection:
def init(self):
self.cursor = self.db.cursor()
def re_connect(self):
self.cursor = self.db.cursor()
def close_connection(self):
_connection = SQLconnection()
error_file = open('error.txt','w+')
import jinja2
def render_any_page(args if needed):
##You render code copy paste from
templateLoader = jinja2.FileSystemLoader(searchpath="./")
templateEnv = jinja2.Environment(loader=templateLoader)
TEMPLATE_FILE = "templates/distance_page_test.html"
template = templateEnv.get_template(TEMPLATE_FILE)
outputText = template.render(all_args_you_need_to_render_your_template_same_as_server_code) # this is where to put args to the template renderer
except Exception as e:
print e
print 'error in row',row_id ##Row _id is the row in db you want to fix
error_file.write(str(row_id)+'\n') #row_id
return 0
print 'no_error'
##call render_page() for each row in your db to perform a site wide test for your jinja2 operation
## Downfall for this code is it takes a lot of time. You can launch a multithread operation for improving it's performance.
