I am using venv, and I develop using eclipse . I want to add a contact page .
I did :
$ . bin/activate $ pip install flask-wtf
And I import some modules in the forms.py :
I used this :
from flask.ext.wtf import Form, TextField, TextAreaField, SubmitField
and then this :
from flask.ext.wtf import Form from wtforms.fields import TextField, BooleanField
No one of them worked because I had this error :
from flask.ext.wtf import Form File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/flask/exthook.py", line 87, in load_module raise ImportError('No module named %s' % fullname) ImportError: No module named flask.ext.wtf
What version of flask-wtf did you install? Since version 9 you do all of the field imports from WTForms not from Flask-WTF.
So your imports will be (note that according to docs import statement was changed):
from flask_wtf import Form from wtforms import TextField, BooleanField
I solved this by using venv/bin/pip install flask-wtf instead of pip install flask-wtf (even if I activated venv before the second command . bin/activate )
I had to use
from flask_wtf import Form
from flask.ext.wtf import Form
Even after changing different import styles and re-installing flask, flask-wtf, if it still does not works : then in the config.py( "config.py may be of different name eg app_config.py etc)
insert the line
sys.path.insert(0, os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'venv/Lib/site-packages'))
set the lib path of your own app , in my case it was "venv/Lib/site-packages"
