Flask-SQLAlchemy is an extension for Flask that adds support for SQLAlchemy to your application. It aims to simplify using SQLAlchemy with Flask by providing useful defaults and extra helpers that make it easier to accomplish common tasks.
Install and update using pip:
$ pip install -U Flask-SQLAlchemy
A Simple Example
from flask import Flask from flask_sqlalchemy import SQLAlchemy app = Flask(__name__) app.config["SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI"] = "sqlite:///example.sqlite" db = SQLAlchemy(app) class User(db.Model): id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True) username = db.Column(db.String, unique=True, nullable=False) with app.app_context(): db.create_all() db.session.add(User(username="example")) db.session.commit() users = db.session.execute(db.select(User)).scalars()
