Flask SQLAlchemy



  • Flask SQLAlchemy is an ORM tool.
  • It is establishes the relationship between the objects and the tables of the relational databases.
  • The object-relational mapping is the technique of storing python objects into the database tables without writing the raw SQL queries.

Install flask-sqlalchemy:

  • Using pip installer, we must need to install flask-sqlalchemy. $ pip install flask-sqlalchemy
  • To confirm the installation, We need to import the module on the python shell. If it is successfully imported, the installation is successful. $ import flask_sqlalchemy

Creating a small web application using flask-sqlalchemy

Here we will create a CRUD Application in python using ORM SQLAlchemy.

Sample Code


<!DOCTYPE html>  
      <h3>Add new Employee</h3>  
      {%- for category, message in get_flashed_messages(with_categories = true) %}  
         <div class = "alert alert-danger">  
            {{ message }}  
      {%- endfor %}  
      <form action = "{{ request.path }}" method = "post">  
         <label for = "name">Name</label><br>  
         <input type = "text" name = "name" placeholder = "Name" /><br>  
         <label for = "salary">Salary</label><br>  
         <input type = "text" name = "salary" placeholder = "salary" /><br>  
         <label for = "age">Age</label><br>  
         <textarea name = "age" placeholder = "age"></textarea><br>  
         <label for = "PIN">Pin</label><br>  
         <input type = "text" name = "pin" placeholder = "pin" /><br>  
         <input type = "submit" value = "Submit" />
