Flask-Diced - CRUD views generator for Flask
Flask-Diced is a set of helper classes for Flask that generates CRUD views and registers them to blueprint/application.
- Detail view
- Index view
- Create view
- Edit view
- Delete view
Flask-Diced Might Not Be What You Want
Flask-Diced is opinionated, it assumes:
- the model object has a
savemethod for data persistence and
deletemethod to remove itself.
- the model can be created with no required arguments.
- the form used for creation and editing are in the style of Flask-WTF’s,
specifically, Flask-Diced expects the form accepts a named parameter
objto pass in the initial value for editing as well as
populate_objmethod on the form class. In short, just use Flask-WTF.
- the client should be redirected when done for POST requests.
- views should have minimal business logic.
Flask-Diced is Extensible
Flask-Diced is designed in a way that customizations can be easily done. All properties and methods can be overridden for customization.
Flask-Diced can be customized to the point that the assumptions described in last section are refer to the default implementation and will no longer hold true if you customize relevant parts of it.
