Interface to authorization logic in the backend of Amsterdam’s (Netherlands) open data distribution platform, [Datapunt](http://data.amsterdam.nl).
In Datapunt authorization levels associated with users are stored in a central database. When a user accesses a resource she needs to provide a cryptographically secure token. That token contains the user’s authorization level. The resource in turn uses that information to decide what information the user can access.
$ pip install datapunt-authorization
In order to use this library you need to have access to a Postgress database.
import authorization import authorization_levels # pip install datapunt-authorization-levels authzmap = authorization.AuthzMap(**psycopgconf) if authzmap['myuser'] == authorization_levels.LEVEL_EMPLOYEE: ... # do some eployee-e things
Activate your virtualenv, install the egg in editable mode, and start coding:
$ source env/bin/activate $ pip install -e .
