Hi Yobani Cruz! First off - Do you have Python 3 installed? If not you can download this here. Having python includes pip, so you do not need to install pip, it is part of the Python 3 package.

Next, you can install flask by typing pip install flask into your terminal, whether that is through your code editor or in your command prompt. I highly recommend reviewing virtual environments (for Windows / for Mac) if you haven't already so that flask is only installed in the virtual environment and not just on your computer somewhere.

Hopefully this info helps you get started :D
