An API for interacting with the Tahrir database
API for interacting with the Tahrir database. Based on the Tahrir database model written by Ralph Bean. There are two classes that can be used in this module. The first is the TahrirDatabase class located in tahrir_api.dbapi and the second is the database model located in tahrir_api.model. The TahrirDatabase class is a high level way to interact with the database. The model is used for a slightly more low level way of interacting with the database. It allows for custom interactions with the database without having to use the TahrirDatabase class.
Creating a Badge
This is an example of creating a badge via Tahrir-API:
from tahrir_api.dbapi import TahrirDatabase db = TahrirDatabase('backend://badges:badgesareawesome@localhost/badges') origin = 'http://foss.rit.edu/badges' issuer_name = 'FOSS@RIT' org = 'http://foss.rit.edu' contact = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' issuer_id = db.add_issuer(origin, issuer_name, org, contact) badge_name = 'fossbox' image = 'http://foss.rit.edu/files/fossboxbadge.png' desc = 'Welcome to the FOSSBox. A member is you!' criteria = 'http://foss.rit.edu' db.add_badge(badge_name, image, desc, criteria, issuer_id)
Awarding a Badge
This is an example of awarding a badge via Tahrir-API:
from tahrir_api.dbapi import TahrirDatabase db = TahrirDatabase('backend://badges:badgesareawesome@localhost/badges') badge_id = 'fossbox' person_email = 'email@example.com' issued_on = None db.add_person(person_email) db.add_assertion(badge_id, person_email, issued_on)
