  1. Get inside the environment $ pipenv shell

  2. Install all dependencies $ pipenv install

  3. Generate de diagram as many times as you need $ python src/models.py

  4. Open the file diagram.png to check out your UML diagram!

📝Instructions

Your Job is to update the src/models.py file with the code needed to replicate the StarWars data model.

The project is using the SQLAlchemy Python library to generate the database.

  • Your project must have a table User that will represent your blog users.
  • Your blog users will be able to login and save their favorite planets and characters.
  • The database should store the user favorites.
  • The database should store characters and planets.
  • What other tables do you think a blog like this might have?
  • What properties should go inside the user? or inside the Character or Favorite table?
  • What are the relationships between those tables?
  • Please add at least 4 models with all of its properties.
  • Generate the diagram.png file at the end by running $ python3 models.py on the console.
