flask.ext.bcrypt: DeprecationWarning

It seems there should be an update for this video. What should I use? This is my output:

from flask.ext.bcrypt import generate_password_hash main:1: ExtDeprecationWarning: Importing flask.ext.bcrypt is deprecated, use flask_bcrypt instead.

Hey, Bas,

I had the same issue! Your comment really helped since it is outdated in the bcrypt documentation as well.

Using the suggestion worked for me:

from flask_bcrypt import generate_password_hash
