Redirect is also a function provided by the flask. It is called redirect()  function. When this function is called, it returns a response object and also redirects the user to another location with the specific code.

The syntax of the redirect function is given below:

Flask.redirect(location, status code, response)

Here the first parameter is the location that is referred to as a target place where the user is going to be redirected.

The second parameter is the status code. It is sent to the header of the browser. The default code is 302, which stands for “found.” And the third one is the response, and it is used to instantiate the response.

We can understand this with the help of an example.

First of all, we have to create three pages.

  • Homepage=home3.html
  • Login page =login3.html
  • Python

Both html file must be saved in the template folder that we made earlier  C:\Users\Erik_Akash\Documents\flask_app\templates and .py file saved to the C:\Users\Erik_Akash\Documents\flask_app folder.



Run the file, and the output is given below.
