Technical Documentation: Server


Isso uses some of the following dependencies:

  • werkzeug – WSGI toolkit

  • itsdangerous – store signed data on untrusted clients

  • misaka – fast Markdown processor written in C

  • html5lib – HTML(5) parser and sanitizer


This section of the Isso documentation is incomplete. Please help by expanding it.

Click the Edit on GitHub button in the top right corner and read the GitHub Issue named Improve & Expand Documentation for further information.

What’s missing?

  • Technologies used (flask, werkzeug, misaka, …)

  • Explain code structure

  • Request handling and HTTP

  • Database handling code

  • Comment schema

  • Comment (Markdown) rendering using misaka and custom extensions

  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

  • Content Security Policy

  • Future plans: Rewrite/Refactor, SQLAlchemy, MVC

… and other things about the server that should be documented.
