Python OAUTH 2.0 Client used for Backend Application strategy login against European XFEL Web Applications

Project description

Small Python library responsible for managing users authentication using OAUTH 2.0 Client Backend Application strategy (from non web software to web Oauth2 providers)




Python project

  1. Install requirements, if never done before

1.1. For OS X distributions:

sudo port install python35
sudo port

sudo port select --set python3 python35

sudo port install py35-pip
sudo port select --set pip pip35

sudo port install py35-nose
sudo port select --set nosetests nosetests-3.5

1.2. For Linux distributions:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python3.5
  1. Make oauth2_xfel_client library available in your python environment

2.1. Install it via pip:

# Install dependencies from local wheels files
pip install --no-index --upgrade --find-links ./external_dependencies/*

# Install dependencies from the pypi
pip install -r requirements.txt

Or as a normal python project (via .egg file):

python install

Running this command the “compiled” oauth2_xfel_client-5.1.1-py3.4.egg file is generated under the current Python installation site-packages folder.

2.2. Install it as a normal python project (via Wheel):

python bdist_wheel

Running this command 2 folders are generated under the current Python installation site-packages folder:

  • oauth2_xfel_client with the sources;
  • oauth2_xfel_client-5.1.1.dist-info/ with Wheels configuration files.
  1. To identify your Python site-packages folder run:

    python -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print(get_python_lib())"


To use this project you need to import it.

If you want interact directly with this Library you should import Oauth2ClientBackend class:

from oauth2_xfel_client.oauth2_client_backend import Oauth2ClientBackend

Or import everything:

import oauth2_xfel_client
  1. Connection to the Oauth2Client:

    from oauth2_xfel_client.oauth2_client_backend import \
    Oauth2ClientBackend as Oauth2Client
    # Necessary configuration variables to establish a connection
    # Go to to make a token for
    # the metadata catalogue.
    user_id = '201ed15ff071a63e76cb0b91a1ab17b36d5f92d24b6df4497aa646e39c46a324'
    user_secret = 'a8ae80f5e96531f19bf2d2b6102f5a537196aca44a673ad36533310e07529757'
    user_email = ''
    # URLs for the metadata catalogue
    token_url = ''
    refresh_url = ''
    auth_url = ''
    scope = ''
    # Generate the connection
    oauth_client_valid = Oauth2Client(client_id=user_id,
  2. Interaction with the oauth2Client:

2.1 Example data_group_types:

current_token = oauth_client_valid.get_session_token()

Development & Testing

When developing, and before commit changes, please validate that:

  1. All tests continue passing successfully (to validate that run nosetests):

    # Go to the source code directory
    cd oauth2_xfel_client
    # Run all tests
    nosetests .
    # Run all tests and get information about coverage for all files inside oauth2_xfel_client package
    pip install nose-cov
    nosetests --with-cov --cover-erase --cover-inclusive --cov-report term-missing --cov oauth2_xfel_client
    # Run all tests with xunit
    nosetests --where=./oauth2_xfel_client/ --with-xunit --xunit-file=pythonTest.xml
    # If you don't want use nosetests you can simply run the test class
    python oauth2_xfel_client/tests/
  2. Code keeps respecting pycodestyle code conventions (to validate that run pycodestyle):

    pycodestyle .
  3. To generate all the wheels files for the dependencies, execute:

    # Generate Wheels to its dependencies
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies -r requirements.txt
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies --find-links=./external_dependencies -r requirements.txt
    # Generate Wheels to itself and dependencies
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies .
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies --find-links=./external_dependencies .

Guarantee that you have the desired versions in requirements.txt and files.
