ValueError: 'name' may not contain a dot '.' character.
I don't understand what this means
raise ValueError("'name' may not contain a dot '.' character.") ValueError: 'name' may not contain a dot '.' character.
Some of my codes which I think might have caused the error are below:
api.add_resource( CourseList, '/api/v1/courses', # URI endpoint = 'courses' # what we are going to call this end point )

Adding this comment in case anyone else is having this issue:
The line causing problem in the above snippet is:
courses_api = Blueprint('resources.courses', __name__)
The first argument in the Blueprint constructor cannot have a dot character in it. Looking at the flask documentation for the Blueprint class, the first positional argument in the constructor is prepended to the endpoint name, that's all:
name (str) – The name of the blueprint. Will be prepended to each endpoint name.
So you can change
'resources.courses' to something like just
'course' and the app should build just fine
