Import loop with MongoEngine

Sorry if this is something that is a little more simple to Flask or
Python, I?m still a little bit of a noob with Python. I?m using
flask-mongoengine to interact with my database, which I define in my
In that file, I also require my views.py file
which in turn requires stuff from my models.py file
which tries to import db from __init__.py. I?m basically creating a
loop of imports, so whenever I try to run the server straight from
command line, I get the following error http://pastebin.com/G5u9KX2F.
Not really sure where to go from here, I haven?t had a whole lot of
Flask/Python experience, so any help and advice would be appreciated.

I didn't look at your code but it sounds like you're doing a circular
import. Try moving the import that's causing the problem to:
1. the bottom of the file
2. inside the first function it gets used from
There is a little description here of the problem:
