We haven't gotten up to Jinja yet, but if you view source (after you've built a Flask project, and launched a web server, also not covered yet), you'll note that there is not {%extends "base.html" %}. This is because the HTML is rendered serverside, sop...

Thanks Matt, You probably won't have time/space to go into that much detail, so focus only on the essential/common attributes of the tag, how its interprettion or functionaility in a generic browser.

For the first project you can use what ever packages and libraries you like, but only expect marks for the code you write, and the content you produce.

Sat 4th Apr 2020, 9:33am, Timothy F.
You don't have to use them in every page, but it could be a useful idea for people looking to excel (e.g. use DOM and Javascript to reveal the HTML/CSS code corresponding to an element, or use AJAX to pull your github statistics directly into your CV)....

Resources used should be referenced. It is fine to just use anchor tags linking to content, but you can include bibliographic references if you prefer (it's a good opportunity to apply some css styles). e.g. "NodeJS extended the asynchronous programming...
