def index():
    form = PostForm()
    if form.validate_on_submit():
        post = Post(body = form.post.data, timestamp = datetime.utcnow(), author = g.user)
        db.session.add(post)
        db.session.commit()
        flash('Your post is now live!')
        return redirect(url_for('index'))
    posts = g.user.followed_posts().all()
    return render_template("index.html",

        form = form)

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. The route decorator creates a mapping between the URL /login and the login function.
2. When Flask receives a request to /login, it will call the login function and pass the return value of it back to the browser as a response.
3. The login function is very similar to the index function. It creates a response with the rendered template.
4. The render_template function invokes the Jinja2 template engine that comes bundled with the Flask framework. Jinja2 substitutes {{ … }} blocks with the corresponding values, given by the arguments provided in the render_template call.
