Writing a service

The idea behind this package is to make it easier to add new service providers to Flash. Each new service should subclass Service (or one of its more specific children, where appropriate) from the core.py file. The mix-in classes in auth.py can be used to implement authentication to the service API endpoint as needed (currently both header and query parameter token validation are supported).

  • Create a new Service subclass, or use one of the pre-provided subclasses for continuous integration or version control systems;
  • Use the mix-ins from auth.py and core.py to add any required authentication, custom root setting and/or health thresholds;
  • Define the ROOT service URL (used for all requests) and ENDPOINT URL template (which will be filled in with attributes defined on the service instance) - for many cases, the default update implementation will do what you need it to based on these;
  • Define any additional REQUIRED configuration parameters on the class (note that __init__ keyword arguments without default values and any required parameters defined in superclasses will be added automatically);
  • Define any PROVIDED configuration parameters (i.e. those that other classes require that your class provides - see BasicAuthHeaderMixin for an example);
  • Set the appropriate TEMPLATE for it (if not a standard template, add it to templates/partials - use the Jinja2 templating language), and note that the service data will be exposed to the template as service_data for the initial load data binding and for clients without JavaScript;
  • Set the FRIENDLY_NAME, for display in the top-left of each pane, if not the same as the class name;
  • Register the service in both SERVICES objects, using the same key:
    • in Python (__init__.py); and
    • in JavaScript (static/scripts/services.js, where any service-specific client-side behaviour should also be placed).
