Django-admin for flask with restful API.

Project description


Flask-Lab can create a restful api directly from database schema without any coding.

Flask-Lab is built with flask and peewee.

Quick Start


pip install flask-lab

or even better, with poetry:

poetry add flask-lab

This will install the flask_lab module and a flask-lab command.

Create a demo sqlite database(optional)

If you don't have any database to connect and just want to try out flask-lab, you could create a demo database with a user and an article table for show-case:

flask-lab --create-demo

This will create a flask_lab_demo.db file with some fake data.

Start the flask-lab restful service

flask-lab --engine sqlite --database flask_lab_demo.db

Then open your browser at http://localhost:5000/api/user or http://localhost:5000/api/article and you can see a list of users or articles.

This will also create and, which you could use to build your app.
