title: flask-sqlalchemy-login-manager-template author/contributors: paul young This repo provides a template for a flask applications with the login management and user models already setup. The purpose of this repo is to make it quick and easy to get a flask application with a basic login/user management system up and running. This application currently uses the declaritave extension in sqlalchemy. I was originally using this method for another project, which is why I decided to stick with it for the flask app. It should be noted that using the flask-sqlalchemy extension may result in a simpler setup. I do prefer the syntax associated with the declarative approach however, which is part of the reason i stuck with it. To run the app follow these directions: 1. clone the github repo (git clone https://github.com/payoung/flask-sqlalchemy-login-manager-template) 2. cd into the appropriate directory (cd flask-sqlalchemy-login-manager) 3. If you use virtualenv, go ahead and set that up. Then use the requirements.txt file to install the dependencies (pip install -r requirements.txt) 4. Create a tmp directory for the db (mkdir tmp) 5. Initialize the db a. enter python interactive session (python) b. import the init function (from database import init_db) c. run the init_db function (init_db()) d. exit python (quit()) 6. run the app (python views.py) This will launch the flask server, which is currently configured to run on the local host (127.0.0.1:5000) and is also in debug mode. Adding views that require authentication is simple, add a '@login_required' decorator to the view (see the user_home_page view for an example). Once a user is logged in, the user can be accessed from the 'current_user' object. ***This is a very minimial template.
