Overview:
Assignment 7 marks the beginning of a significant transition for your Python project, from a Tkinter-based desktop application to a web-based application using Flask and Bootstrap. Flask, a lightweight and flexible web framework, will be used to create the web application, while Bootstrap, a popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework, will be employed to design its user interface. This assignment focuses on setting up the basic Flask framework and developing a new look and feel for your application using Bootstrap, laying the foundation for a modern, responsive web application.

Objectives:
  • Set up a basic Flask web application framework.
  • Understand and apply Bootstrap for designing a responsive and attractive web interface.

  2. Bootstrap-Enhanced Web Interface
    • Description: Design the initial web interface using Bootstrap. Focus on creating a layout that is visually appealing and user-friendly, considering the functionalities of your previous Tkinter application.
    • Requirements: The interface should be responsive, making use of Bootstrap components and grid system. It should reflect a new look and feel, differentiating it from the Tkinter interface.
