Turn URL variables into models.

Project Description

Dart turns URL variables into database models with a decorator.

That means you can do something like this:

@app.route('/user/<user_id>/tracks', methods=['GET'])
@dart.inject(User, 'user', from_var='user_id')
def user_tracks(user=None):
    return jsonify(user.tracks)

If you’re smart, you might have a decorator that checks user authorization, something like @login_required. You can compose Dart with other decorators to simplify logic, while still keeping your code readable and concise:

def login_required(view):
    @functools.wraps(view)
    @dart.inject(User, 'user', from_var='user_id')
    @dart.inject(User, 'current_user', from_val=lambda: session['user_id'])
    def decorated_view(user=None, current_user=None, *args, **kwargs):
        if current_user != user:
            abort(403)
        else:
            return view(user=user, *args, **kwargs)
    return decorated_view

@login_required
def view(user=None):
    return '{} did it!'.format(user.name)

Of course, Dart isn’t just a Flask. It’s literally just a decorator that takes a keyword arg or lambda expression and queries the model class using it as the primary key. That means you can use the Dart decorator with any function.
