Micro service API toolkit

Project description


pypi travis Coverage Documentation Status

Cliquet is a toolkit to ease the implementation of HTTP microservices, such as data-driven REST APIs.


This document describes changes between each past release.

3.1.5 (2016-05-17)

Bug fixes

  • Prevent the browser to cache server responses between two sessions. (#593)

3.1.4 (2016-05-10)

Bug fixes

  • Redirects version prefix to hello page when trailing_slash_redirect is enabled. (#700)

  • Fix crash when setting empty permission list with PostgreSQL permission backend (fixes Kinto/kinto#575)

  • Fix crash when type of values in querystring for exclude/include is wrong (fixes Kinto/kinto#587)

  • Fix crash when providing duplicated principals in permissions with PostgreSQL permission backend (fixes #702)

3.1.3 (2016-04-29)

Bug fixes

  • Fix migration of triggers in PostgreSQL storage backend when upgrading from <3.0.0. Running the migrate command will basically re-create them (fixes Kinto/kinto#559)


  • Fix some typos in documentation (#696)

  • Update links to readthedocs (#697)

3.1.2 (2016-04-19)

Bug fixes

  • Fix safe creation (If-None-Match: *) if a record used to exist with the same id (Kinto/kinto#512)

New features

  • A cache_prefix setting was added for cache backends. (#680)

3.1.1 (2016-04-05)

Bug fixes

  • Allow numeric comparison and sorting with the PostgreSQL backend. (#690)

3.1.0 (2016-03-07)


  • Add the __lbheartbeat__ endpoint, for load balancer membership test.

New features

  • Default console log renderer now has colours (#671)

Bug fixes

  • Do not always return 412 errors when request header If-None-Match: * is sent on POST /collection (fixes #673)

Internal changes

  • Remove some imports at initialization to speed startup (#674)

3.0.0 (2016-02-26)

Breaking changes

  • Errors are not swallowed anymore during the execution of ResourceChanged events subscribers.

    Subscribers are still executed within the transaction like before.

    Subscribers are still executed even if transaction is eventually rolledback. Every subscriber execution succeeds, or none.

    Thus, subscribers of these events should only perform operations that are reversed on transaction rollback: most likely database storage operations.

    For irreversible operations see the new AfterResourceChanged event.


  • Clients are redirected to URLs without trailing slash only if the current URL does not exist (#656)

  • Partial responses can now be specified for nested objects (#660, Kinto/kinto#445) For example, /records?_fields=address.street.

  • List responses are now sorted by to last_modified descending by default (#662, thanks @ayusharma)

New features

  • Resource events are now merged in batch requests. One event per resource and per action is emitted when a transaction is committed (#634)

  • Monitor time of events listeners execution (fixes #503)

  • Add method to remove a principal from every user

  • Validate that the client can accept JSON response. (#667)

  • Validate that the client can only send JSON request body. (#667)

  • Added a new AfterResourceChanged event, that is sent only when the commit in database is done and successful.

    Subscribers of this event can fail, errors are swallowed and logged. The final transaction result (or response) cannot be altered.

    Since commit occured successfully and operations will not be rolledback, subcribers running irreversible actions should subscribe to this event (like sending messages, deleting files, or run asynchronous tasks).

  • Track execution time on StatsD for each authentication sub-policy (#639)

  • Output the cliquet version with –version (#636)

Bug fixes

  • ResourceChanged events are not emitted if a batch subrequest fails (#634) There are still emitted if the whole batch transaction is eventually rolledback.

  • Fix a migration of PostgreSQL schema introduced in #604 that was never executed

  • Fix PostgreSQL backend timestamps when collection is empty (ref Kinto/kinto#433)

  • Fix statsd initialization on storage (#637)

  • Providing bad last modified values on delete now returns 400 (#665)

  • Providing last modified in the past for delete now follows behaviour create/update (#665)

Internal changes

  • Optimized (and cleaned) usage of (un)authenticated_userid (#641)

2.15.0 (2016-01-27)


  • Forward slashes (/) are not escaped anymore in JSON responses (#537)

  • The API capabilities can be exposed in a capabilities attribute in the root URL (#628). Clients can rely on this to detect optional features on the server (e.g. enabled plugins).

Bug fixes

  • Batch now relies on custom views responses (@viewconfig(context=Error)) (fixes mozilla-services/syncto#78, rel #629)

  • Fix listener name logging during startup (#626)

New features

  • The policy name used to configure authentication in settings is now used for the user id prefix and StatsD authn_type counters.

2.14.0 (2016-01-15)


  • Fields can be filtered in GET requests using _fields=f1,f2 in querystring (fixes #384)

  • Fixed docs building under Python 3 (#591)

2.11.0 (2015-11-17)

New features

  • A transaction now covers the whole request/response cycle (#510, Kinto/kinto#194). If an error occurs during the request processing, every operation performed is rolled back. Note: This is only enabled with PostgreSQL backends. In other words, the rollback has no effect on backends like Redis or Memory.
