Hello everyone, i'm currently working on a login system in flask, and i want to send session variables to a landing page after the login and then retrieve them there, (NB: I'm not making use of flask-login and i dont want to parse the variables via get method); please, any idea on how to accomplish such?. I'm actually new to flask. Below is the login module.

What I have tried:

@app.route('/login', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
def login():
    login_form = LoginForm()
    if login_form.validate_on_submit():
        email =
        password =

        db_email = engine.execute(text("""SELECT * FROM users WHERE email = :email"""), ({ "email": email },)).fetchone()
        db_password = engine.execute(text("""SELECT password FROM users WHERE email = :email"""), ({ "email": email },)).fetchall()
        passw_decrypt = check_password_hash(db_password, password)

        if not db_email or not passw_decrypt:
            flash('Please check your login details and try again.')
            return redirect('/login')
        session['loggedin'] = True
        session['EMAIL'] = db_email['email']
        session['ID'] = db_email['id']
        return redirect(url_for('books'))
    return render_template('login.html', form=login_form)
