Python Question

Flask Value error view function did not return a response

Error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/flask/", line 1836, in __call__

File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/flask/", line 1566, in make_response
raise ValueError('View function did not return a response')
ValueError: View function did not return a response

And my code:

#Used for starting the flask server
from flask import Flask #Import flask mains
from flask import request #Import flask requests
from flask import render_template #Import flask render templates
import json, urllib #import api modules
import time #Imporing time in darlek voice
app = Flask(__name__)

def my_form():
return render_template("my-form.html") #Set render template

@app.route('/', methods=['POST'])
def my_form_post():
openwindow_at = float(request.form['open']) #When it reached ? open window
if request.form['scale'] == "kelvin": #Change figures
print("Do nothing") #Debug info
elif request.form['scale'] == "celcius":
openwindow_at = openwindow_at + int(273.15) #celcius to kelvin
elif request.form['scale'] == "fah": #Fah to kelvin
openwindow_at = (openwindow_at + 459.67) * 5 / 9 #F to kelvin
text = request.form['text'] #Get info from First page
url = "" + text #Download the json
response = urllib.urlopen(url) #Download Json
data = json.loads( #Parse json
print("Current Weather in " + text + " " + data['weather'][0]['description']) #Debug infomation
print("Temp: " + str(data['main']['temp'])) #Print temp

if data['weather'][0]['description'].find("rain") >= 0: #Check The weather
return "Shutting your window"
Close the window(Tom's job)
if float(data['main']['temp']) >= openwindow_at:
return "Opening your window"
#open the window (Tom's job)
if __name__ == '__main__':
app.debug = True #Uncomment to enable debugging #Run the Server


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<h1>Enter a place</h1>
<form action="." method="POST">
<input type="text" name="text">
<input type="submit" name="my-form" value="Send">
<p>Open window if temp is greater than<input type="textbox" name="open"></input> <input type="radio" name="scale" value="kelvin">Kelvin</input><input type="radio" name="scale" value="celcius">Celcius</input><input type="radio" name="scale" value="fah">FarenHeit</input></p>

If I put a
loop there it loads for ever.

Then enter a temp higher than the current one the page loads forever.
And if I use the current code listed above it gives the error.


The following does not return a response:

You must return anything like return afunction() or return 'a string'.

This can solve the issue
