pyramid_persona let you quickly set up authentication using persona
on your pyramid project. It provides a way to conveniently replace
the login form and all the processing and security concerns that comes
with it. It aims at giving as much as possible with as little
configuration as possible, while still letting you customize if you
want. If you want to see some screenshots of the demo app, take a look
at this blog post.
Very basic usage
First of all, include
pyramid_persona. Add this in your project configuration
Then, we need two little lines in your config files : a secret used to sign cookies, and the audience, the hostname and port of your website (this is needed for security reasons):
persona.secret = This is some secret string persona.audiences = http://localhost:6543
There, we’re done. We now have a nice forbidden view with a persona login button.
Less basic usage
pyramid_persona also provides you a way to easily put a login or logout button on your pages. To do so, you need to

protection, and is why we need a secret). Defaults are
UnencryptedCookieSessionFactoryConfig. You can override it if you prefer.
- it adds a
- it adds a
persona_buttonrequest attribute containing html code for quickly putting a login button.
- it defines the
/logoutviews to handle the persona workflow.
- it defines a basic forbidden view with a login button.
You can replace any part you like if the default behaviour doesn’t work for you and the configuration isn’t enough.
