Application Folder Structure

The home directory where applications are served is /home/app.
Under this directory your application should have this folder structure

  • /home/app
    * app/ - This is where your Python code goes
      * `` - Your main WSGI Python application
    * static/ - Your static content such as .html, .js, .css files
      * `index.html`
      * js/
      * css/
    * `requirements.apt` - apt-get requirements, separated by newline
    * `requirements.pip` - pip requirements, separated by newline


To enable error logging of application errors to the container log you should add the PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS parameter to the Flask configuration.

from flask import Flask
app = Flask(__name__)
app.config['PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS'] = True
