This package contains Django's CBVs adapted to use with Tornado framework.

Project description

Django’s CBVs adapted to be used with Tornado along with SQLAlchemy and WTForms. It’s highly recomended to read the docs here first:


0.2: new handler - DeleteHandler
0.2.5: fixed missing context in ProcessFormHandler


The only requirement is SQLAlchemy’s session stored in application’s db attribute.

from sqlalchemy.orm import scoped_session, sessionmaker

class Application(tornado.web.Application):
    def __init__(self):
        self.db = scoped_session(sessionmaker(bind=engine))

Basic usage

from torgen.base import TemplateHandler
from torgen.list import ListHandler
from torgen.detail import DetailHandler
from torgen.edit import FormHandler, DeleteHandler
from my_alchemy_models import Post
from my_wtforms import LoginForm

class HomeHandler(TemplateHandler):
    template_name = 'home.html'

class BlogHandler(ListHandler):
    template_name = 'blog.html'
    paginate_by = 10
    context_object_name = 'post_list'
    model = Post

class PostHandler(DetailHandler):
    template_name = 'post.html'
    model = Post
    context_object_name = 'post'

class LoginHandler(FormHandler):
    template_name = 'login.html'
    form_class = LoginForm
    success_url = '/'

    def form_valid(self, form):
        return super(LoginHandler, self).form_valid(form)

class DeletePostHandler(DeleteHandler):
    template_name = 'confirm_delete.html'
    model = Post
    success_url = '/blog/'
