Installed Flask in a virtualenv yet "command not found"

Installed virtualenv, activated it, pip installed flask, and yet, when i try to run a script or see if it recognised, i get command not found.

(project)gabriel@debian:~/project$ pip list
Flask (0.10.1)
itsdangerous (0.24)
Jinja2 (2.7.3)
MarkupSafe (0.23)
pip (1.5.6)
setuptools (5.5.1)
Werkzeug (0.10.4)
(project)gabriel@debian:~/project$ flask
-bash: flask: command not found
(project)gabriel@debian:~/project$ Flask
-bash: Flask: command not found
(project)gabriel@debian:~/project$ </3


Also tried:

(project)gabriel@debian:~/project$ python -m flask pi.py
/home/gabriel/project/bin/python: No module named flask.__main__; 'flask' is a package and cannot be directly executed
(project)gabriel@debian:~/project$

Answer

Flask 0.10 has no flask command, it was added in 0.11. If pi.py has the smarts to run your app, such as if it's using Flask-Script, the command you're looking for is:

$ python pi.py

You can install Flask-CLI to get the flask command in 0.10 if you can't upgrade to 0.11.
