Session and cache for Pyramid

Project description


.. image::

Some Key Value Store basics for pyramid:

Two KVS are implemented:
- memcache
- redis

Here are the provides features:

- An application cache, shared by every request.
- A session manager
- A rate limit per session holder
- A perl session reader (except you are migrating a perl website,
you probably don't want to use it).

Every of this components are optional, they exists if they are set in the
configuration like below.
Component settings are written in json.


The application cache is a new attribute of the session. ``request.cache`` if
the settings ``kvs.cache`` exists.
Here are an example of configuration


kvs.cache = {"kvs": "redis",
"codec": "pickle",
"kvs_kwargs": {},
"ttl": 300,
"key_prefix": "cache::"}

Every kvs, except the type are optional.
The example contains every key with their default values for a redis instance.
The ``kvs_kwargs`` key is passed to the driver to build the client connection.


The session is accessible via "request.session", it's in every pyramid
This is just an implementation for Key Value Store users.


kvs.session = {"kvs": "redis",
"key_name": "session_id",
"session_type": "cookie",
"ttl": 300,
"key_prefix": "session::"}

Every kvs, except the type are optional.
The example contains every key with their default values for a redis instance.

You can also create a session for an http header like authentication token,
it's help to create a cache per user in an API. API don't use cookies.


kvs.session = {"kvs": "redis",
"key_name": "X-Auth-Token",
"session_type": "header",
"ttl": 300,
"key_prefix": "session::"}


The ratelimit works only if the kvs.session is used!
Ratelimit is per session hold and limit number of http queries in a defined


kvs.ratelimit = {"window": 1, "limit": 15}

All keys are optional.
The example contains every key with their default values for a redis instance.

If the ratelimit is enabled, every response will be decorated with the
following http headers:
- ``X-RateLimit-Limit``: max queries in the period.
- ``X-RateLimit-Remaining``: current remaining queries in that period.


This permit to read a session from a perl that use `storable`_ session.


Here is an example.


# declare the perlsess
kvs.perlsess = {"type": "memcached"}


Declare the addons in the ``pyramid.includes`` in your config, then
tweak the settings like above.


# development.ini
pyramid.includes =

# declare the application cache
# except type, every keys are optional
# kvs_kwargs for redis is the parameters of the redis.Redis class
# see:
# for memcache, parameters of the memcache.Client class
kvs.cache = {"type": "redis"}

# declare the session
kvs.session = {"type": "redis"}

# Authorize a session holder to do 20 http queries max in 2 seconds.
kvs.ratelimit = {"window": 2, "limit": 20}


pyramid_kvs have also a 'mock' implementation of a `kvs` used for testing
purpose, register it using the pyramid plugins in your tests:::

pyramid.includes =


0.3.0 (2018-03-15)

* Don't freeze pyramid version
* Remove support of python 2.6

0.2.3 (2015-09-14)

* Add get keys for Redis

0.2.2 (2015-05-29)

* Bump version for PyPI upload problems
A file named "pyramid-kvs-0.2.1.tar.gz" already exists for pyramid-kvs-0.2.1.
To fix problems with that file you should create a new release.


* Improve testing


* Add python 3 support


* Fix package, files are missing


* Initial version
