Example Flask+SQLAlchemy Project
This example project demos integration between Graphene, Flask and SQLAlchemy.
The project contains two models, one named
Department and another
First you'll need to get the source of the project. Do this by cloning the whole Graphene repository:
# Get the example project code git clone https://github.com/graphql-python/graphene-sqlalchemy.git cd graphene-sqlalchemy/examples/flask_sqlalchemy
It is good idea (but not required) to create a virtual environment for this project. We'll do this using virtualenv to keep things simple, but you may also find something like virtualenvwrapper to be useful:
# Create a virtualenv in which we can install the dependencies virtualenv env source env/bin/activate
Now we can install our dependencies:
pip install -r requirements.txt
Now the following command will setup the database, and start the server:
Now head on over to http://127.0.0.1:5000/graphql and run some queries!
