0.13.0 (2020-06-07)

Bug fixes:

  • Fix compatibility with marshmallow-sqlalchemy<0.22.0 (#189). Thanks @PatrickRic for reporting.

  • Remove unused flask_marshmallow.sqla.SchemaOpts.

0.12.0 (2020-04-26)

  • Breaking change: ma.ModelSchema and ma.TableSchema are removed, since these are deprecated upstream.


It is highly recommended that you use the newer ma.SQLAlchemySchema and ma.SQLAlchemyAutoSchema classes instead of ModelSchema and TableSchema. See the release notes for marshmallow-sqlalchemy 0.22.0 for instructions on how to migrate.

If you need to use ModelSchema and TableSchema for the time being, you’ll need to import these directly from marshmallow_sqlalchemy.

from flask import Flask
from flask_sqlalchemy import SQLAlchemy
from flask_marshmallow import Marshmallow

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config["SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI"] = "sqlite:////tmp/test.db"

db = SQLAlchemy(app)
ma = Marshmallow(app)

# flask-marshmallow<0.12.0

class AuthorSchema(ma.ModelSchema):
    class Meta:
        model = Author

# flask-marshmallow>=0.12.0 (recommended)

class AuthorSchema(ma.SQLAlchemyAutoSchema):
    class Meta:
        model = Author
        load_instance = True

# flask-marshmallow>=0.12.0 (not recommended)

from marshmallow_sqlalchemy import ModelSchema

class AuthorSchema(ModelSchema):
    class Meta:
        model = Author
        sql_session = db.session
