Flask - ImportError: No module named migrate.versioning


Question

I'm working through a flask tutorial and am trying to run a script that creates a database instead of doing it through the command line. It uses the SQLAlchemy-migrate package, but when I try to run the script, it gives an ImportError.

This is the terminal output:

Sean:app seanpatterson$ python ./db_create.py 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./db_create.py", line 2, in <module>
    from migrate.versioning import api
ImportError: No module named migrate.versioning

This is the db_create.py script:

#!flask/bin/python
from migrate.versioning import api
from config import SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI
from config import SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO
from app import db
import os.path
db.create_all()
if not os.path.exists(SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO):
    api.create(SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO, 'database repository')
    api.version_control(SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI, SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO)
else:
    api.version_control(SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI, SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO,     api.version(SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO))

This is the config file it references:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import os
basedir = os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(__file__))

SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'sqlite:///' + os.path.join(basedir, 'app.db')
SQLALCHEMY_MIGRATE_REPO = os.path.join(basedir, 'db_repository')

This application is being run with a virtual environment. This are the module that relates to it that I have installed in the environment:

sqlalchemy_migrate-0.7.2-py2.7.egg-info

Any help appreciated

Accepted Answer

ImportError: No module named migrate.versioning probably means the module is not installed. Make sure it has been installed in the correct virtual environment, it is activated (you ran the activate script in that environment) and the selected Python binary is actually making use of that environment (i.e. you are using Python2 and not Python3).

pip install sqlalchemy==0.7.9 

and

pip install sqlalchemy-migrate==0.7.2 

and

optionally this flask-whooshalchemy==0.55a should solve the problem
