Unsure where my code is not working


from flask import Flask

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

app = Flask(__name__)

app.register_blueprint(recipes_api, url_prefix="/api/v1")
app.register_blueprint(ingredients_api, url_prefix="/api/v1")

if __name__ == '__main__':

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

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

Your API url is not correct.

it should look like this '/api/v1/[Plural Resource]'

api.add_resource(IngredientList, '/api/v1/ingredients', endpoint="ingredients")
api.add_resource(Ingredient, '/api/v1/ingredients/<int:id>', endpoint="ingredient")
