from flask import Flask

from resource.ingredients import ingredients_api
from resource.recipes import recipes_api

app = Flask(__name__)
app.register_blueprint(recipes_api)
app.register_blueprint(ingredients_api)


if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run()

api.add_ingredients(
    IngredientsList,
    '/api/v1/ingredients',
    endpoint='ingredients'
    )

api.add_resource(
    Ingredients,
    '/api/v1/ingredients/<int:id>',
    endpoint='ingredient'
