handle errors that can be reported to the web client

Project description



Flask-ReportableError is a Flask extension for handling errors that can
be reported to the web client.


In order to use Flask-ReportableError, you must include the following
statement in you application start script::

from flask import Flask
import flask_reportable_error

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config.from_envvar('FLASK_SETTINGS', silent=True)


- ``flask_reportable_error.init()``:
context initializer, it must receive the application as parameter.

- ``flask_reportable_error.mixin``:
class decorator that declares the decorated class as mixin with
reportable exceptions.

- ``flask_reportable_error.reportable()``:
factory to create reportable exception classes. For example::

raise reportable(ValueError)('invalid data received')

- ``flask_reportable_error.ReportableErrorMixin``:
mixin for reportable exception classes.

- ``report()``:
method that returns the reportable string – can be overridden.

- ``status_code``:
property representing the numeric status code – can be set at
instance level.

- ``template``:
attribute refering to custom template name.

- ``headers``:
attribute refering to custom headers.

- ``type_name``:
attribute set by ``reportable()`` on inheritance, with the name of
the original exception class.


The Flask settings may contain the key ``REPORTABLE_ERROR``, that’s a
dictionary with the following keys:

the logging level. If not supplied, Flask-ReportableError uses

the default numeric status code for reportable exception classes. By
default it’s 500.

the name of a template to be used instead of none. The context of the
template will contain the exception as value of the ``exc`` key.

- ``HEADERS``:
a dictionary to be used as default headers instead of ``{}``.
