Social connectivitiy as a library

Project Description

Barebones social connection library. Tries to not do everything so you can do anything. Only OAuth1 and OAuth2 currently. Python 3 compatible.

Usage

Dendrite doesn’t give you any models, URLS or finished views. It’s up to you to define the behaviour, URLs and models. An example using Instagram follows.

``models.py``

We copy the full Instagram profile. If you don’t want the full profile, you can change the behaviour of OAuth2CallbackView.create_profile in your views.

class InstagramProfile(models.Model):
    id              = models.CharField(max_length=255, primary_key=True)
    username        = models.CharField(max_length=255, blank=True)
    full_name       = models.CharField(max_length=255, blank=True)
    profile_picture = models.URLField(blank=True)
    bio             = models.TextField(blank=True)
    website         = models.URLField(blank=True)
    user            = models.ForeignKey(settings.AUTH_USER_MODEL, related_name='instagram_profiles')
    access_token    = models.CharField(max_length=255, blank=True)

    def __unicode__(self):
        return self.full_name

``views.py``

Create views to handle connection. You can customize the views to behave differently.

from dendrite.views import OAuth2Mixin, OAuth2ConnectView, OAuth2CallbackView

from .models import InstagramProfile

class InstagramMixin(OAuth2Mixin):
    client_id         = settings.INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_ID
    client_secret     = settings.INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_SECRET
    site              = 'https://api.instagram.com'
    authorization_url = 'https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize/'
    token_url         = 'https://api.instagram.com/oauth/access_token'
    redirect_uri      = 'callback' # Name or full URL

    profile_class     = InstagramProfile
    scope             = "basic"


class InstagramConnectView(InstagramMixin, OAuth2ConnectView):
    pass

class InstagramCallbackView(InstagramMixin, OAuth2CallbackView):
    def get_remote_profile(self, request, token):
        return token["user"]

``urls.py``

Include your social views into your urls.

urlpatterns = patterns(
    '',
    url('^social/instagram/connect/$', InstagramConnectView.as_view(), name='connect'),
    url('^social/instagram/callback/$', InstagramCallbackView.as_view(), name='callback'),
)

``backends.py``

Create an additional authentication backend that uses InstagramProfile.

DendriteBackend objects receive the profile class and the full profile information returned by InstagramCallbackView.get_remote_profile.

from dendrite.backends import DendriteBackend

from .models import InstagramProfile

class InstagramBackend(DendriteBackend):
    profile_class = InstagramProfile

``settings.py``

Adding API keys and authentication backend.

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
    'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend',
    'app.InstagramBackend',

)

INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_ID = os.environ.get('INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_ID', '')
INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_SECRET = os.environ.get('INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_SECRET, '')
