Why Flask? As a micro-framework, Flask lets you build web services with very little overhead. It offers freedom for you, the designer, to implement your project in a way that suits your particular application.
Why Flask-Admin? In a world of micro-services and APIs, Flask-Admin solves the boring problem of building an admin interface on top of an existing data model. With little effort, it lets you manage your web service’s data through a user-friendly interface.
How does it work? The basic concept behind Flask-Admin, is that it lets you build complicated interfaces by grouping individual views together in classes: Each web page you see on the frontend, represents a method on a class that has explicitly been added to the interface.
These view classes are especially helpful when they are tied to particular database models, because they let you group together all of the usual Create, Read, Update, Delete (CRUD) view logic into a single, self-contained class for each of your models.
