Flashbag (flash messages) support for aiohttp.web

Project description

The library provides flashbag for aiohttp.web.


The library allows us to share some data between requests inside session.

Basic usage example:

import aiohttp_flashbag
from aiohttp import web
from aiohttp_session import setup as setup_session
from aiohttp_session import SimpleCookieStorage

async def handler_get(request):
    validation_error = aiohttp_flashbag.flashbag_get(request, 'error')

    error_html = ''

    if validation_error is not None:
        error_html = '<span>{validation_error}</span>'.format(

    body = '''
            <head><title>aiohttp_flashbag demo</title></head>
                <form method="POST" action="/">
                    <input type="text" name="name" />
                    <input type="submit" value="Say hello">
    body = body.format(error_html=error_html)

    return web.Response(body=body.encode('utf-8'), content_type='text/html')

async def handler_post(request):
    post = await

    if len(post['name']) == 0:
        aiohttp_flashbag.flashbag_set(request, 'error', 'Name is required')

        return web.HTTPSeeOther('/')

    body = 'Hello, {name}'.format(name=post['name'])

    return web.Response(body=body.encode('utf-8'), content_type='text/html')

def make_app():
    session_storage = SimpleCookieStorage()

    app = web.Application()

    setup_session(app, session_storage)




    return app


First of all, you have to register aiohttp_flashbag.flashbag_middleware in aiohttp.web.Application.

You can get some data from the previous request with aiohttp_flashbag.flashbag_get method. Parameters:

  • request. Instance of aiohttp.web_request.Request.

  • key. Name of “variable” that you want to get

  • default. The default value that should be returned, if the key doesn’t exist in session flashbag.

To set one “variable” in flashbag you should use aiohttp_flashbag.flashbag_set. Parameters:

  • request. Instance of aiohttp.web_request.Request.

  • key. Name of “variable” that you want to specify.

  • value. Data that you want to specify.

If you need to replace all “variables” in flashbag you should use aiohttp_flashbag.flashbag_replace_all. Parameters:

  • request. Instance of aiohttp.web_request.Request.

  • value. Dict with values that you want to add into flashbag.
