Flask-Views

Flask-Views is a Flask extension which provides a set of class-based views, inspired by the Django class based views.

Currently this package contains a set of views for rendering (template and JSON) responses dispatched by HTTP request method, views for handling (WTForms) form submission and a collection of database views for creating and updating objects (currently MongoDB is supported by using Mongoengine).

Installation

Flask-Views can be installed by executing pip install flask-views. The source is available at: http://github.com/brocaar/flask-views

Examples

Contact form

from flask_views.edit import FormView

class ContactFormView(FormView):
    # For creating forms classes, see the WTForms documentation
    form_class = ContactForm
    template_name = 'contact_form.html'

    def form_valid(self, form):
        # Do something with the submitted form data
        return super(ContactFormView, self).form_valid(form)

    def get_success_url(self):
        return url_for('contact.form')

app.add_url_rule(
    '/contact/',
    view_func=ContactFormView.as_view('contact')
)

Article view

from flask_views.db.mongoengine.detail import DetailView

class ArticleView(DetailView):
    get_fields = {
        'category': 'category',
        'slug': 'slug',
    }
    # For creating document classes, see the Mongoengine documentation
    document_class = Article
    template_name = 'article_detail.html'

app.add_url_rule(
    '/articles/<category>/<slug>/',
    view_func=ArticleView.as_view('article')
)
