Python Flask REST API Resourceful Blueprints Register API

Flask REST API / resourceful blueprints / register api (Task 3)

I'm not sure what's wrong with my code. The challenge returns the following error:

Didn't get a 200 at /api/v1/recipes/1

/ingredients/1 seems to work (it threw an error earlier which I fixed).

api.py
from flask import Flask

from resources.ingredients import ingredients_api
from resources.recipes import recipes_api

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

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

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

from flask.ext.restful import Resource, Api

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

It seems like you're getting the error because of line 19 in recipes.py.

The line should just read: api = Api(recipes_api)

How did I miss that.. I even remember doing some copy & paste around those lines.

Thanks a lot!

Mind putting your response as a separate comment so I can mark it as solved?

done :) Didn't realize I replied as a comment
