pyramid_twitterauth 0.2.1

Twitter OAuth for Pyramid
pyramid_twitterauth is a plugin that extends pyramid_simpleauth to allow a Pyramid application's users to authenticate via Twitter and / or connect their Twitter account.

Once they've done so, you get an authenticated Tweepy client as request.twitter.client and flags for has_read_access & has_write_access::

# e.g.: in a view callable
if request.twitter.has_write_access:
 request.twitter.client.update_status('OMG #lolcats')


Install

Install the package as you would any other Python egg, e.g.:

easy_install pyramid_twitterauth

Then include it along with a session factory, pyramid_tm, pyramid_basemodel and pyramid_simpleauth in the configuration portion of your Pyramid app:

# Configure a session factory, here, we're using `pyramid_beaker`.
config.include('pyramid_beaker')
config.set_session_factory(session_factory_from_settings(settings))

# Include the packages. The order is significant if you want
# `pyramid_basemodel` to "just work".
config.include('pyramid_simpleauth')
config.include('pyramid_twitterauth')
config.include('pyramid_basemodel')

# Either include `pyramid_tm` or deal with committing transactions yourself.
config.include('pyramid_tm')


Note that you must provide an sqlalchemy.url in your .ini settings, or bind the SQLAlchemy models and scoped Session to a database engine yourself.

Mode

In default mode, the package allows users to authenticate via Twitter. This is done by exposing the following views::

- /oauth/twitter/authenticate
- /oauth/twitter/authenticate_callback
- /oauth/twitter/failed
- an HTTPForbidden view that redirects to /oauth/twitter/authenticate

In "connect" mode, the package allows existing authenticated users to connect their Twitter accounts. This is done by exposing views at::

- /oauth/twitter/authorize
- /oauth/twitter/authorize_callback

These two modes are currently mutually exclusive. To enable "connect" mode, set twitterauth.mode in your .ini settings::

twitterauth.mode = connect

Settings

Specify your Twitter app's OAuth consumer info in your ::

twitterauth.oauth_consumer_key = < key >
twitterauth.oauth_consumer_secret = < secret >


Views are exposed by default at /oauth/twitter/.... To use a different path:

twitterauth.url_prefix = 'somewhere'

Tests

I've only tested the package under Python 2.6 and 2.7 atm. You'll need nose, coverage, mock and WebTest. Then, e.g.:

$ nosetests --cover-package=pyramid_twitterauth --cover-tests --with-doctest --with-coverage pyramid_twitterauth
