class SQLAlchemy(object):
"""This class is used to control the SQLAlchemy integration to one
or more Flask applications. Depending on how you initialize the
object it is usable right away or will attach as needed to a
Flask application.
There are two usage modes which work very similar. One is binding
the instance to a very specific Flask application::
app = Flask(__name__)
db = SQLAlchemy(app)
The second possibility is to create the object once and configure the
application later to support it::
db = SQLAlchemy()
def create_app():
app = Flask(__name__)
return app
The difference between the two is that in the first case methods like
:meth:`create_all` and :meth:`drop_all` will work all the time but in
the second case a :meth:`flask.Flask.request_context` has to exist.
By default Flask-SQLAlchemy will apply some backend-specific settings
to improve your experience with them. As of SQLAlchemy 0.6 SQLAlchemy
will probe the library for native unicode support. If it detects
unicode it will let the library handle that, otherwise do that itself.
Sometimes this detection can fail in which case you might want to set
`use_native_unicode` (or the ``SQLALCHEMY_NATIVE_UNICODE`` configuration
key) to `False`. Note that the configuration key overrides the
value you pass to the constructor.
This class also provides access to all the SQLAlchemy functions and classes
from the :mod:`sqlalchemy` and :mod:`sqlalchemy.orm` modules. So you can
declare models like this::
class User(db.Model):
username = db.Column(db.String(80), unique=True)
pw_hash = db.Column(db.String(80))
You can still use :mod:`sqlalchemy` and :mod:`sqlalchemy.orm` directly, but
note that Flask-SQLAlchemy customizations are available only through an
instance of this :class:`SQLAlchemy` class. Query classes default to
:class:`BaseQuery` for `db.Query`, `db.Model.query_class`, and the default
query_class for `db.relationship` and `db.backref`. If you use these
interfaces through :mod:`sqlalchemy` and :mod:`sqlalchemy.orm` directly,
the default query class will be that of :mod:`sqlalchemy`.
.. admonition:: Check types carefully
Don't perform type or `isinstance` checks against `db.Table`, which
emulates `Table` behavior but is not a class. `db.Table` exposes the
`Table` interface, but is a function which allows omission of metadata.
You may also define your own SessionExtension instances as well when
defining your SQLAlchemy class instance. You may pass your custom instances
to the `session_extensions` keyword. This can be either a single
SessionExtension instance, or a list of SessionExtension instances. In the
following use case we use the VersionedListener from the SQLAlchemy
versioning examples.::
from history_meta import VersionedMeta, VersionedListener
app = Flask(__name__)
db = SQLAlchemy(app, session_extensions=[VersionedListener()])
class User(db.Model):
__metaclass__ = VersionedMeta
username = db.Column(db.String(80), unique=True)
pw_hash = db.Column(db.String(80))
The `session_options` parameter can be used to override session
options. If provided it's a dict of parameters passed to the
session's constructor.
.. versionadded:: 0.10
The `session_options` parameter was added.
.. versionadded:: 0.16
`scopefunc` is now accepted on `session_options`. It allows specifying
a custom function which will define the SQLAlchemy session's scoping.
