Hello,

I had tried to download it from 
http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/flask-docs.pdf, but i got:‍

Chapter 404: The Lost Page

A careful and diligent search has been made for the desired page, but it 
just cannot be found.

And so they returned to familiar waters.‍







Rgs,
Daisy

TL;DR
https://www.sammserver.com/Flask.pdf

I don't think there is a way to download a pdf form the official page. 
There is however a way for you to compile the pdf yourself. The docs are 
built with Sphinx and looking here http://sphinx-doc.org/, I can see 
LaTeX listed in the output formats. The flask docs Makefile (available 
here https://github.com/mitsuhiko/flask/blob/master/docs/Makefile) 
contains a latexpdf target. Sphinx is required to be installed for this. 
Also, using a virtualenv is advised. I was able to compile a pdf copy 
using the following commands (on a Linux distro)

git clone https://github.com/mitsuhiko/flask.git
cd flask
virtualenv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install sphinx
python setup.py develop
cd docs
make latexpdf

Note that I had the entire arch texlive-most package group installed. 
https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/texlive-most/

For your convienience, I have provided a downloadable version on this 
address https://www.sammserver.com/Flask.pdf
