I’ve been writing automated regression tests at work over the past month, using Jest and Selenium WebDriver, and have really been struggling to get my tests to pass consistently. I began to suspect that methods like
With this blog post I hope to provide some help to those who are trying to combine Miguel Grinberg’s Flask Mega Tutorial with his other tutorial titled OAuth Authentication with Flask.
