Flask render_template


New to Flask and have some experience with python, when using render_template it simply does not render the template as well as not giving out any errors.
Code Here:

from flask import Flask, render_template

app = Flask(__name__, template_folder= "/templates")

def index():
        #return("Index str")
    return render_template("index.html")

def crawler():
    return("WebCrawler str")
    return render_template("crawler.html")

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.debug = True

HTML here (pretty certain file hierarchy is correct).

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{url_for('static', filename='style.css')}}">
        <meta charset = "utf-8">
        <title> Index</title>
        <p> This webserver hosts all webapps and will showcase any unfinished applications.

templates folder


The default folder for the HTML files is templates. So create a folder called “templates” where your python file is located. Put any HTML files in that folder
