/___/ Flask blueprint management /____/


Provides a clean, declarative way of importing and managing blueprints and creating routes. In addition to this, it also enables simple and consistent methods of (de)serialization and validation in blueprint enabled views.

It uses the standard Flask blueprint system, is modular and doesn’t depend on anything special.

This along with an auth component is pretty much all you need for a solid REST API foundation.


  • Dead simple blueprint and route management that works with vanilla blueprints in Flask

  • Drop-in replacement for flask.Blueprint.route with support for Marshmallow


$ pip install flask-journey

Basic usage

This shows some super basic usage to give you an idea of how the extension works.

Check out the examples directory for actually usable examples.

The route decorator


These are regular marshmallow type schemas

from marshmallow import Schema, fields, validate

class QuerySchema(Schema):
    first_name = fields.String(required=False)
    last_name = fields.String(required=False)

class UserSchema(Schema):
    id = fields.Integer(required=True)
    first_name = fields.String(required=True)
    last_name = fields.String(required=True)
    user_name = fields.String(required=True)


The flask_journey.route decorator is used with standard Flask blueprints and enables easy (de)serialization and validation with the help of the Marshmallow library.

from flask import Blueprint
from flask_journey import route
from db import create_user, get_user

from .schema import UserSchema

bp = Blueprint('users', __name__)

@route(bp, '/', methods=['GET'], query_schema=QuerySchema(strict=True), marshal_with=UserSchema(many=True))
def get_many(__query=None):
    return get_users(**__query['data'])

@route(bp, '/', methods=['POST'], body_schema=UserSchema(strict=True), marshal_with=UserSchema())
def create(__body=None):
    return create_user(**__body['data'])

Blueprint / Route management

This component of Flask-Journey is primarily for larger applications using factories, but works in any type of Flask application.


from flask_journey import BlueprintBundle
from .users import bp as users_bp
from .groups import bp as groups_bp

v1 = BlueprintBundle(path='/api/v1')
v1.attach_bp(users_bp, description='Users API')


from flask import Flask
from flask_journey import Journey

from .bundles import v1

app = Flask(__name__)

journey = Journey()




  • Python 2 and 3

  • Flask > 0.7
