Python Flask REST API Resourceful Blueprints Register API

Bummer: cannot import name 'ingredients_api'

Alright, one last step! You need to import the blueprints into app.py and register them both with app.

Task 4 of 4. This is the last thing I need to complete before finishing the entire Flask REST API. Any help would be appreciated, I can't seem to understand what the issue is...

api.py
from flask import Flask

from resources.ingredients import ingredient_api
from resources.recipes import recipe_api

import models


app = Flask(__name__)
app.register_blueprint(ingredient_api)
app.register_blueprint(recipe_api)


if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run()
resources/ingredients.py
from flask import Blueprint
from flask.ext.restful import Resource
from flask.ext.restful import Api

import models


class IngredientList(Resource):
    def get(self):
        return 'IngredientList'


class Ingredient(Resource):
    def get(self, id):
        return 'Ingredient'


ingredients_api = Blueprint('resources.ingredients', __name__)
api = Api(ingredients_api)
api.add_resource(
    IngredientList,
    '/api/v1/ingredient',
    endpoint = 'ingredients'
)

api.add_resource(
    Ingredient,
    '/api/v1/ingredients/<int:id>',
    endpoint ='ingredient'
)
resources/recipes.py
from flask.ext.restful import Resource, Api
from flask import Blueprint

import models


class RecipeList(Resource):
    def get(self):
        return 'RecipeList'


class Recipe(Resource):
    def get(self, id):
        return 'Recipe'


recipes_api = Blueprint('resources.recipes', __name__)
api = Api(recipes_api)
api.add_resource(
    RecipeList,
    '/api/v1/recipe',
    endpoint ='recipes'
)


api.add_resource(
    Recipe,
    '/api/v1/recipes/<int:id>',
    endpoint ='recipe'
)

You have ingredient_api and recipe_api. They should be plural: ingredients_api and recipes_api
