Welcome of You in my Project.

var slideIndex = 0;

function showSlides() {
  var i;
  var slides = document.getElementsByClassName("mySlides");
  var dots = document.getElementsByClassName("dot");
  for (i = 0; i < slides.length; i++) {
    slides[i].style.display = "none";  
  if (slideIndex > slides.length) {slideIndex = 1}    
  for (i = 0; i < dots.length; i++) {
    dots[i].className = dots[i].className.replace(" active", "");
  slides[slideIndex-1].style.display = "block";  
  dots[slideIndex-1].className += " active";
  setTimeout(showSlides, 2000); // Change image every 2 seconds

Step 5:Store images in static folder
  • if you use images in your HTML page then you have to store it inside static folder so just create a image folder inside static folder [Using previous steps] and store four images [slid1 ,slide2,slide3,slide4] after doing this your project screen will look like below

Step 6: Create python file to execute this HTML file
  • To create a python file right click on project name go to new and click on python file

  • After clicking on Python file you will get a screen like below

  • Here you can type  any name for your python file ,in my case it is "app" so just type app and press enter this will create a file automatically [Remember: No need to type you have to type only app and press enter].
  • Now you project screen look like below

Step 7: Install Flask Library or Package 
  • To install go to File and click on Setting

  • After clicking on Setting you will get a screen like below

  • Here in above screen you have to click on Project Interpreter and after clicking you will get a screen like below

  • Here in above screen you have to click on plus[+] icon as indicated by arrow, after clicking on it you will get a screen like below

  • here in above screen first search "flask" in search box then make sure "Flask" is selected as indicated above and finally click on "Install Package" to add this library in your project, after that wait for some seconds [It depends upon your internet speed] it will display a message below.

  • After this message close this window.
Step 8: Write Python Code
  • There is a code below which you need to copy it and and paste it to your file
from flask import Flask,render_template
app = Flask(__name__)
@app.route('/index', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
def index():
 return render_template('index.html')
if __name__ == '__main__':,debug=True)
  • After doing this Run your python code and  look console screen below the code, it will look like below

  • From the above screen you just copy the URL as indicated in above screen and paste it to any browser and you will final output like below.
