Aio web server

Project description

Web server for the aio asyncio framework

Build status

https://travis-ci.org/phlax/aio.web.server.svg?branch=master

Installation

Requires python >= 3.4 to work

Install with:

pip install aio.web.server

Quick start - Hello world web server

Create a web server that says hello

Save the following into a file “hello.conf”

[aio]
modules = aio.web.server

[server/my_server]
factory = aio.web.server.factory
port = 8080

[web/my_server/my_route]
match = /
route = my_example.handler

And save the following into a file named my_example.py

import aiohttp
import aio.web.server

@aio.web.server.route
def handler(request, config):
    return aiohttp.web.Response(body=b"Hello, web world")

Run with the aio run command

aio run -c hello.conf

aio.web.server usage

Configuration

To set up the web server, we need to:

  • add “aio.web.server” to aio:modules initialize the web server
  • add a “server/SERVERNAME” section to create the http server
  • add a “web/SERVERNAME/ROUTENAME” to create a route

Lets create a basic web server configuration

>>> web_server_config = """
... [aio]
... log_level = ERROR
... modules = aio.web.server
...
... [server/server_name]
... factory = aio.web.server.factory
... port = 7070
...
... [web/server_name/route_name]
... match = /
... route = aio.web.server.tests._example_handler
... """

Now lets create a route and make it importable

>>> import aiohttp
>>> import aio.web.server
>>> @aio.web.server.route
... def route_handler(request, config):
...     return aiohttp.web.Response(body=b"Hello, web world")
>>> aio.web.server.tests._example_handler = route_handler

Lets set up a test to run the server and request a web page

>>> from aio.app.runner import runner
>>> import aio.testing
>>> @aio.testing.run_forever(sleep=1)
... def run_web_server(config, request_page="http://localhost:7070"):
...     yield from runner(['run'], config_string=config)
...
...     def call_web_server():
...         result = yield from (
...             yield from aiohttp.request(
...                "GET", request_page)).read()
...
...         print(result.decode())
...
...     return call_web_server

And run the test

>>> run_web_server(web_server_config)
Hello, web world

We can access the aiohttp web app by name

>>> import aio.web.server
>>> web_app = aio.web.server.apps['server_name']
>>> web_app
<Application>
>>> web_app['name']
'server_name'

And we can access the jinja environment for the web app

>>> import aiohttp_jinja2
>>> jinja_env = aiohttp_jinja2.get_env(web_app)
>>> jinja_env
<jinja2.environment.Environment object ...>

We dont have any templates registered yet

>>> jinja_env.list_templates()
[]

Let’s clear the web apps, this will also call aio.app.clear()

>>> aio.web.server.clear()
>>> aio.web.server.apps
{}
>>> print(aio.app.config, aio.app.signals)
None None

Web app modules

By default template resources are registered for any modules listed in aio:modules

>>> config = """
... [aio]
... modules = aio.web.server
...          aio.web.server.tests
...
... [server/server_name]
... factory = aio.web.server.factory
... port = 7070
... """

Lets create a test to run the server and print the list of installed jinja templates

>>> @aio.testing.run_forever(sleep=1)
... def run_server_print_templates(config_string):
...     yield from runner(['run'], config_string=config_string)
...
...     def print_templates():
...         web_app = aio.web.server.apps['server_name']
...         print(
...             [x for x in
...              aiohttp_jinja2.get_env(
...                  web_app).list_templates(extensions=["html"])])
...         aio.web.server.clear()
...
...     return print_templates

The aio.web.server.tests module has 2 html templates

>>> run_server_print_templates(config)
['fragments/test_fragment.html', 'test_template.html']

We can set the modules for all web apps in the aio/web:modules option

This will override the setting in aio:modules

>>> config = """
... [aio]
... modules = aio.web.server
...       aio.web.server.tests
...
... [aio/web]
... modules = aio.web.server
...
... [server/server_name]
... factory = aio.web.server.factory
... port = 7070
... """
>>> run_server_print_templates(config)
[]

Or you can set the modules in the web/SERVER_NAME:modules option.

This will override the setting in both aio/web:modules and aio:modules

>>> config = """
... [aio]
... modules = aio.web.server
...          aio.web.server.tests
...
... [aio/web]
... modules = aio.web.server
...
... [web/server_name]
... modules = aio.web.server.tests
...
... [server/server_name]
... factory = aio.web.server.factory
... port = 7070
... """
>>> run_server_print_templates(config)
['fragments/test_fragment.html', 'test_template.html']

Routes

>>> config_template = """
... [aio]
... modules = aio.web.server
...        aio.web.server.tests
... log_level: ERROR
...
... [server/server_name]
... factory: aio.web.server.factory
... port: 7070
...
... [web/server_name/route_name]
... match = /
... route = aio.web.server.tests._example_route_handler
... """

While you can use any coroutine as a route handler, doing so would bypass logging and request/response handling.

Functions decorated with @aio.web.server.route receive 2 parameters, request and config

The config corresponds to the relevant web/SERVER_NAME/ROUTE_NAME section that the route was created in

>>> @aio.web.server.route("test_template.html")
... def route_handler(request, config):
...     return {
...         'message': 'Hello, world at %s from match(%s) handled by: %s' % (
...             request.path, config['match'], config['route'])}
>>> aio.web.server.tests._example_route_handler = route_handler
>>> run_web_server(config_template)
<html>
  <body>
    Hello, world at / from match(/) handled by: aio.web.server.tests._example_route_handler
  </body>
</html>
>>> aio.web.server.clear()

Static directory

The web/SERVER_NAME section takes a static_url and a static_dir option for hosting static files

>>> config_static = """
... [aio]
... log_level: ERROR
... modules = aio.web.server
...
... [server/test]
... factory: aio.web.server.factory
... port: 7070
...
... [web/test]
... static_url: /static
... static_dir: %s
... """
>>> import os
>>> import tempfile

Lets create a temporary directory and add a css file to it

>>> with tempfile.TemporaryDirectory() as tmp:
...     with open(os.path.join(tmp, "test.css"), 'w') as cssfile:
...         res = cssfile.write("body {background: black}")
...
...     run_web_server(
...         config_static % tmp,
...         request_page="http://localhost:7070/static/test.css")
body {background: black}
>>> aio.web.server.clear()

Template filters

You can configure jinja filters by adding them to the web/SERVER_NAME:filters option

>>> config = """
... [aio]
... log_level: ERROR
... modules = aio.web.server
...
... [server/server_name]
... factory: aio.web.server.factory
... port: 7070
...
... [web/server_name]
... filters = example_filter aio.web.server.tests._example_filter
... """
>>> def filter(value, *la):
...     return value
>>> aio.web.server.tests._example_filter = filter
>>> @aio.testing.run_forever(sleep=1)
... def run_server_check_filter(config_string):
...     yield from runner(['run'], config_string=config_string)
...
...     def check_filter():
...         web_app = aio.web.server.apps['server_name']
...         env = aiohttp_jinja2.get_env(web_app)
...
...         print("example_filter" in env.filters.keys())
...
...     return check_filter
>>> run_server_check_filter(config)
True

You can also add them in the aio/web:filters option to configure filters for all web apps
