flask crud generator

First, install Flask using pip:

pip install Flask

Create a new Flask application and set up a virtual environment:

mkdir flask_crud_generator
cd flask_crud_generator
python -m venv venv

Activate the virtual environment:

  • For Windows:
  • For macOS and Linux:
source venv/bin/activate

Install Flask-SQLAlchemy for handling database operations:

pip install Flask-SQLAlchemy

Create a Flask app and initialize a SQLAlchemy instance:

from flask import Flask
from flask_sqlalchemy import SQLAlchemy

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config['SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI'] = 'sqlite:///your_database.db'
db = SQLAlchemy(app)

Create a model for your database using SQLAlchemy:

class YourModel(db.Model):
    id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True)
    # Add other columns as needed

Initialize the database:


Create routes for CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) in your Flask app:

@app.route('/create', methods=['POST'])
def create():
    # Logic to create a new entry in the database

@app.route('/read/<int:id>', methods=['GET'])
def read(id):
    # Logic to retrieve a specific entry from the database

@app.route('/update/<int:id>', methods=['PUT'])
def update(id):
    # Logic to update a specific entry in the database

@app.route('/delete/<int:id>', methods=['DELETE'])
def delete(id):
    # Logic to delete a specific entry from the database

Run the Flask application:

export FLASK_APP=your_app_name.py
export FLASK_ENV=development
flask run

Replace your_app_name.py with the name of your Python file containing the Flask app. Access your CRUD endpoints using appropriate HTTP methods (POST, GET, PUT, DELETE) to perform Create, Read, Update, and Delete operations on your database model.

Note: Implement the logic inside each route according to your specific requirements for creating, reading, updating, and deleting data from the database.
