I'm trying to reference posts by users.

Models.py

from app import app, db, bcrypt, slugify, flask_whooshalchemy, JWT, jwt_required, current_identity, safe_str_cmp
from sqlalchemy import Column, Integer, DateTime, func
from app import (TimedJSONWebSignatureSerializer
as Serializer, BadSignature, SignatureExpired)

import datetime


class User(db.Model):
id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True)
username = db.Column(db.String(80), unique=True)
password = db.Column(db.String(20), unique=True)
posts = db.relationship('Post', backref='author', lazy='dynamic')

def __init__(self, username, password):
self.username = username
self.password = bcrypt.generate_password_hash(password, 9)

def is_authenticated(self):
return True

def is_active(self):
return True

def is_anonymous(self):
return False

def get_id(self):
return (self.id)

def __repr__(self):
return '<User %r>' % self.username


class Post(db.Model):
__tablename__ = "posts"

id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True)
title = db.Column(db.String(80))
body = db.Column(db.Text)
user_id = db.Column(db.Integer, db.ForeignKey('user.id'))
# slug = db.Column(db.String(80), index=True, nullable=True)

time_created = Column(DateTime(timezone=True), server_default=func.now())
time_updated = Column(DateTime(timezone=True), onupdate=func.now())

def __init__(self, title, body):
self.title = title
self.body = body

# self.slug = slugify(title).lower()


I'm pretty confused, i have been referencing the flask mega tutorial im not really having success, does anyone have any suggestions, im about to go nuts

Answer

Or just add author as a relationship and add author as a parameter to the __init__ method

# inside Post definition
author = db.relationship("User")

def __init__(self,title,body,author):
    self.author = author
