Python Flask REST API Resourceful Blueprints Register API

keep getting bummer "ingredients" not defined. What am I missing here?

I am supposed to register the blueprint in app.py

api.py
from flask import Flask

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



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

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

You got really close there!

The final task is "import the blueprints into app.py and register them both with app."

It looks like you registered them properly, but you forgot to import them:

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

Thank you so much Steven!
