Lightrun for Flask

To run a Flask web app with the Lightrun agent, follow these steps:

  1. In your application folder, install the Python agent by running python -m pip install lightrun
  2. Add the following code to your application's main init.py or app.py (The import statement must be added to the main code, not to a specific routed method):

    try:
        import lightrun
        lightrun.enable(company_key="<COMPANY_SECRET>")
    except ImportError as e:
        print("Error importing Lightrun: ", e)
    
    # Example route
    @app.route("/")
    def hello_world():
    return "Hello world!"
