Using flask on Python IDLE
How would I follow along with this series using Python IDLE?

The way I ran it in a browser if you're not using workspaces is by doing this:
- Run "python simpleApp.py" in the terminal
- Type this as the url "http://localhost:8000"
If you want other devices on your network to view the webpage try this as the url: You'll need to know the local ip address of the computer running simpleApp.py. http://"ip address":8000
Hopefully that helps someone out.

You should be able to follow along using IDLE if you want, you'll just need to make sure that the required packages are installed. For the Flask course, that should just be the
flask package, which you'll install with
pip install flask.
