python flask import error

Issue

I am running the following code

from flask import Flask
app = Flask(__name__)
@app.route("/")
def hello():
    return "Hello World!"
if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.run(host='0.0.0.0', port=80, debug=True)

and getting the following error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "test.py", line 1, in <module>
    from flask import Flask
  File "/home/pi/programs/flask.py", line 1, in <module>
    from flask import Flask
ImportError: cannot import name Flask

I have tried installing flask through various methods , but still the problem persists

also, is there any alternative to flask???

Solution

Just run apt-get install python3-flask

Edited to install the python3 version, since nobody should be using python2 now.
