Node views

class nodular.view.NodeView(node, user=None, permissions=None)

Base class for node view handlers, to be initialized once per view render. Views are typically constructed like this:

class MyNodeView(NodeView):
    def index(self):
        return u'index view'

    @NodeView.route('/edit', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
    @NodeView.route('/', methods=['PUT'])
    @NodeView.requires_permission('edit', 'siteadmin')
    def edit(self):
        return u'edit view'

    @NodeView.route('/delete', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
    @NodeView.route('/', methods=['DELETE'])
    @NodeView.requires_permission('delete', 'siteadmin')
    def delete(self):
        return u'delete view'
  • node (Node) – Node that we are rendering a view for.
  • user – User that the view is being rendered for.
static requires_permission(permission, *other)

Decorator to enforce a permission requirement on a view.

  • permission (string) – Permission required to access this handler.
  • other – Other permissions, any of which can be used to access this handler.

Available permissions are posted to flask.g.permissions for the lifetime of the request.

static route(rule, endpoint=None, methods=None, defaults=None)

Decorator for view handlers.

  • rule (string) – URL rule. See Werkzeug routing for syntax.
  • endpoint (string) – Endpoint name, defaulting to method name.
  • methods (list) – List of HTTP methods (default GET only).
  • defaults (dict) – Default values to be passed to handler.
