While editing a record, if there is a long wait of let say a few minutes (getting coffee) and then coming back to press the save (POST), I get redirected to the main page to login instead and the data is lost.
It seems the flask-login session expires too fast.
I did some research and came across this.
from flask import session, app session.permanent = True
Is this the proper way to go? But even when I try this I get this exception:
File "/Users/kave/workspace/F11A/src/application/__init__.py", line 14, in <module> session.permanent = True File "/Users/kave/workspace/F11A/src/lib/werkzeug/local.py", line 355, in <lambda> __setattr__ = lambda x, n, v: setattr(x._get_current_object(), n, v) File "/Users/kave/workspace/F11A/src/lib/werkzeug/local.py", line 297, in _get_current_object return self.__local() File "/Users/kave/workspace/F11A/src/lib/flask/globals.py", line 20, in _lookup_req_object raise RuntimeError('working outside of request context') RuntimeError: working outside of request context
Just in case someone else will have this question. I suppose Hooman already got answer.
from flask import session from datetime import timedelta session.permanent = True app.permanent_session_lifetime = timedelta(minutes=30)
from flask import session from datetime import timedelta @app.route('/home', methods=['GET', 'POST']) def show_work(): session.permanent = True app.permanent_session_lifetime = timedelta(minutes=30) form = MyForm(request.form) return render_template('home.html', form = form)
session must be used inside the request.
