Hi Graeme,

I'm on my cell, so not very good for typing.  This is the flask unit testing method I use:

Granted, I'd look at the repositories master branch, since minor things may have changed.  Also, if you find my approach is bad, please correct me - input is always great.

Thank you,

Jeff Levesque
