tg.ext.repoze.who are repoze.who plugins for TurboGears 2

Project Description
Sample repoze.who middleware config and plugins for TG2. This package
depends on repoze.who 0.8 or better.

Trying it Out

- Install TG2 into a virtualenv.

- Install this package into the same virtualenv via "setup.py
install".

- Create a TG2 quickstart project using the virtualenv's python.

- In the development.ini of you project...

- In the config.middleware module of your project, add the following
just under "CUSTOM MIDDLEWARE HERE"::

# CUSTOM MIDDLEWARE HERE (filtered by error handling middlewares)

from tgrepozewho.middleware import make_who_middleware
app = make_who_middleware(app, config, User, user_criterion, user_id_col,
DBSession)

- Add the following definitions in you model.__init__::

groups_table = Table('tg_group', metadata,
Column('group_id', Integer, primary_key=True),
Column('group_name', Unicode(16), unique=True),
Column('display_name', Unicode(255)),
Column('created', DateTime, default=datetime.datetime.now)
)

users_table = Table('tg_user', metadata,
Column('user_id', Integer, primary_key=True),
Column('user_name', Unicode(16), unique=True),
Column('email_address', Unicode(255), unique=True),
Column('display_name', Unicode(255)),
Column('password', Unicode(40)),
Column('created', DateTime, default=datetime.datetime.now)
)

permissions_table = Table('tg_permission', metadata,
Column('permission_id', Integer, primary_key=True),
Column('permission_name', Unicode(16), unique=True),
Column('description', Unicode(255))

- Add the following import in you controllers.root file::

from tgrepozewho import authorize

- Add the following methods to your controllers.root:RootController
class::

@expose('whotg.templates.about')
@authorize.require(authorize.has_permission('manage'))
def manage_permission_only(self, **kw):
return dict(now=now, page='about')

@expose('whotg.templates.about')

def editor_user_only(self, **kw):
return dict(now=now, page='about')

@expose('whotg.templates.login')
def login(self, **kw):
came_from = kw.get('came_from', '/')
return dict(now=now, page='login', header=lambda *arg: None,
footer=lambda *arg: None, came_from=came_from)



- Add the following template as "login.html" into your project's
'templates' directory::

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

- Setup you database config in the normal way by tweaking the development.ini file

- Create the necessary tables by using::

paster setup-app development.ini

- Create a user manually in your database

- Create a group (any name), and a permission named "manage", link this permission
to the group you just created and also add a user to your group.

- Create another user which is in no group but is named "editor"

- Start the project's server via paster serve::

paster server --reload development.ini

- Visit http://localhost:8080/editor_user_only in your browser. You
will be presented with the login form. The "right"
username/password combination is "editor/editpass" (this user has the
username 'editor'). Submitting this set of credentials will show
the about page. Any other username/password combination will
result in the user being presented the login form again. Note that
once you've obtained the credentials for the first time, if you
visit the /editor_user_only page again, you are not asked to
reauthenticate. Log out forcibly by visiting
http://localhost:8080/logout_handler.

- Visit http://localhost:8080/manage_permission_only in your browser.
You will be presented with the login form. The "right"
username/password combination is "manager/managepass" (this user
possesses the manage permission). Submitting this set of
credentials will show the about page. Any other username/password
combination will result in the user being presented the login form
again. Note that if you've authenticated as the 'editor' user, and
you visit the /manage_permission_only page, you will be logged out
and asked for credentials (editors cannot see this page). Note
that once you've obtained the credentials for the first time, if
you visit the /manage_permission_only page again, you are not asked
to reauthenticate. Log out forcibly by visiting
http://localhost:8080/logout_handler.

Misc

If you start "paster serve" in a shell with the WHO_LOG environment
variable set to "1", you will see repoze.who logging output on the
console.

Not yet finished

You can run the unit tests by using "python setup.py test" in the
source package.
