A simple class based permission backend for django

Project description

Really simple permission backend for django

Class based, No database

Inspired by django-permission

Tested with Django 1.10 - python 3.5

Introduction

The app autodiscover perms.py module in your project’s apps.

This modules should register PermissionLogic based class.

When calling django’s has_perm method, it will run the corresponding method name in your PermissionLogic class.

See usage section below for comprehensive example.

Usage

settings.py

INSTALLED_APPS = (
  # ...
  'simple_perms',  # Add simple_perms app to your INSTALLED_APPS
  # ...
)

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
    'simple_perms.PermissionBackend',  # Add permission backend before django's one
    'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend',
)

project_app/perms.py

from simple_perms import register, PermissionLogic


class ProjectLogic(PermissionLogic):

    def add_project(self, user, project, perm):
        return True

    def change_project(self, user, project, perm):
        return user.is_admin() or project.owner == user

    delete_project = change_project

    def default_permission(self, user, project, perm):
      # Optional, default to global default permission, which default to False
      return user.is_admin()


register('project_app', ProjectLogic)
user1.has_perm('project_app.add_project')  # True
user1.has_perm('project_app.change_project', user1_project)  # True
user1.has_perm('project_app.delete_project', user1_project)  # True
user2.has_perm('project_app.change_project', user1_project)  # False
admin.has_perm('project_app.change_project', user1_project)  # True

Default permission

If a checked permission doesn’t exists in registered PermissionLogic based classe, the backend will run the default_permission method of this class. If no default_permission defined, it default to the global default permission which default to False.

Change global default permission

settings.py

SIMPLE_PERMS_GLOBAL_DEFAULT_PERMISSION = 'path.to.custom_global_default_permission'

path/to.py

def custom_global_default_permission(user, obj, perm):
    return user.is_admin()

global_default_permission and default_permission have the same arguments as others permissions : (user, obj, perm)

Change autodiscovered module name

simple_perms autodiscover perms.py modules in every django’s apps. You can change the module name to autodiscover using the SIMPLE_PERMS_MODULE_NAME setting :

SIMPLE_PERMS_MODULE_NAME = 'permission'

Run tests

python runtests.py
