Combining blueprints with resourceful routing

Now, we will create the resources that compose our main building blocks for the RESTful API. First, we will create a few instances that we will use in the different resources. Then, we will create a MessageResource class, that we will use to represent the message resource. Create a new file within the api folder and add the following lines. The code file for the sample is included in the restful_python_chapter_06_01 folder, as shown:

from flask import Blueprint, request, jsonify, make_response from flask_restful import Api, Resource from models import db, Category, CategorySchema, Message, MessageSchema from sqlalchemy.exc import SQLAlchemyError import status api_bp = Blueprint('api', __name__) ...
