    By default, Flask server is only accessible from the localhost. In your case, the container is the localhost, and your requests are originating from outside the container. host='' parameter makes the server accessible from external IPs. It’s described in Flask documentation in detail.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
