pastedeploy help methods for repoze.what.

Project Description

repoze.what.plugins.config – repoze.what with pasterconfig


repoze.what.plugins.config allows you to configure repoze.who and repoze.what using pastedeploy. repoze.who and repoze.what are WSGI middleware frameworks for authentication and authorization, respectively. paster and pastedeploy allows you to configure your WSGI application via INI files.

Installing repoze.what.plugins.config

You can install repoze.what.plugins.config using git:

git clone git://
cd repoze.what.plugins.config
python install

Using repoze.what.plugins.config

repoze.what.plugins.config offers a config entry point for pastedeploy to instantiate a repoze.who+repoze.what middleware. You can use it as a filter in the paster INI file:

use = egg:repoze.what.plugins.config#config
config_file = %(here)s/what.ini
who_config_file = %(here)s/who.ini

The what.ini file has the same format of a who INI file, with the following additions:

  • You can define what plugins.
  • There is a special section what with group_adapters and permission_adapters entries.

You can combine who.ini and what.ini in one file. If you decide to do this, remember that a repoze.what modprovider will be implicitly added to your repoze.who configuration.

Example of use

Here is a valid what.ini config file:

use = repoze.who.plugins.basicauth:make_plugin
realm = 'zbfg'

use = repoze.who.plugins.htpasswd:make_plugin
check_fn = repoze.who.plugins.htpasswd:plain_check
filename = %(here)s/passwd

use = repoze.what.plugins.ini:INIGroupAdapter
filename = group.ini

use = repoze.what.plugins.ini:INIPermissionsAdapter
filename = permissions.ini

request_classifier = repoze.who.classifiers:default_request_classifier
challenge_decider = repoze.who.classifiers:default_challenge_decider
remote_user_key = REMOTE_USER

plugins = basicauth

plugins = htpasswd

plugins = basicauth

group_adapters = ini_group
permission_adapters = ini_permission
