Set of classes that are reusable across various types of web apps, base user object, auth relationships + structured resource tree

Project description

Framework agnostic set of sqlalchemy classes that make building applications that require permissions an easy task.

ziggurat_foundations supplies a set of sqlalchemy mixins that can be used to extend models in your application built in pyramid/flask/(your-favourite-framework-here). The aim of this project is to supply set of generic models that cover the most common needs in application development when it comes to authorization - using flat and tree like data structures.

DOCUMENTATION: http://readthedocs.org/docs/ziggurat-foundations/en/latest/

BUG TRACKER: https://github.com/ergo/ziggurat_foundations

So far following basics are supplied:

  • User - base for user accounts
  • Group - container for many users
  • Resource - Arbitrary database entity that can represent various object hierarchies - blogs, forums, cms documents, pages etc.

Currently following information and data manipulation is supported:

  • assigning arbitrary permissions directly to users (ie. access admin panel)
  • assigning users to groups
  • assigning arbitrary permissions to groups
  • assigning arbitrary resource permissions to users (ie. only user X can access private forum)
  • assigning arbitrary resource permissions to groups

The sqlalchemy mixins make all the interactions easy to use in your application and save development time.
