## Installation
```bash
pip install flask-restive-identifiers
```

## How to use

The library based on postgresql sequences, so you should to configure your
application to use postgresql first:
```python
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

app.config['SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI'] = 'postgresql+psycopg2://user:password@localhost:5432/database'
```

The library provides function generate_id that can be used as is:
```python
>>> from flask_restive_identifiers import generate_id

>>> generate_id(namespace='test')
>>> 1
>>> generate_id(namespace='test')
>>> 2
>>> generate_id(namespace='test')
>>> 3
>>> generate_id(namespace='new_space')
>>> 1
```

The library provides schema that automatically generates auto-increment id.

The sequence name can be changed with meta attribute identifier_namespace:
```python
from flask_restive import fields
from flask_restive_identifiers import IntegerIDSchema


class ScientistSchema(IntegerIDSchema):
first_name = fields.String(required=True)
last_name = fields.String(required=True)

class Meta(IntegerIDSchema.Meta):
identifier_namespace = 'scientists'

```

Each loading without id generates new auto-increment id:
```python
>>> schema = ScientistSchema()
>>> data, errors = schema.load({'first_name': 'Albert', 'last_name': 'Einstein'})
>>> data.id
1
>>> data, errors = schema.load({'first_name': 'Nicolaus', 'last_name': 'Copernicus'})
>>> data.id
2
```
