Bragi

Build Status

This is the backend API for APM's cross-site user audio playlist feature. It is designed as a Rails engine for easier integration into other sites.

Usage

The REST API follows the JSON::API specification. If discrepancies are found, please file a bug report.

Authentication

The method of authentication is defined by the authorization class as described below. When access is denied, the response will be a 403 Forbidden status code.

Document format

{
    "data": {
        "attributes": {
            "after": "279323",
            "audio-description": "A description",
            "audio-hosts": "A list of host names",
            "audio-identifier": "01/01/01/blah",
            "audio-program": "The name of the program",
            "audio-title": "The title of the audio",
            "audio-url": "https://example.com/audio/myaudio.mp3",
            "finished": null,
            "origin-url": "https://example.com/stories/my_story",
            "playtime": 123,
            "source": "example.com",
            "status": "unplayed"
        },
        "id": "27932",
        "type": "bragi-items"
    }
}

Notes on attributes

after

The ID of another item with a status of unplayed or playing and which is also owned by the user. Similar to a linked list.

If you want an item to be the first, explicitly pass null as the value.

audio-url

The URL to the audio. The API doesn't actually care about the format, but the consuming application will need to be able to handle it.

finished

Should be set to an ISO 8601 datetime when the audio has a status of played. If not provided when the status of the audio changes to played, it will be set to the current datetime.

origin-url

The URL of the page from which this audio came. Also the page to which the user will be sent if they click on the audio.

playtime

The last played audio position in whole seconds.

source

An arbitrary ID defining the broad category source of this audio item. We use it to distinguish various sites, e.g. marketplace, mpr-news, classical-mpr, et cetera.

status

One of played, unplayed, and playing.

GET /users/:uid

Shows information about the user. It takes the same UID returned by your authentication class as defined below.

GET /items

Provides a list of items for the authenticated user in sort order.

Available GET parameters

  • page[size] The total number of entries to be returned. Maximum is 100.
  • page[number] The page to be returned.
  • filter[source] The source(s) to be returned. Multiple sources can be defined using the GET param array syntax: filter[source][].
  • filter[status] The status(s) to be returned. This also accepts array syntax.

POST /items

Creates a new item. Post body should be in the standard format shown above with the following exceptions:

  • ID should be omitted. This will be assigned on save and returned in the response.

In case of success, the response will be the same object with any omitted fields filled in with their defaults and a 200 status code. In case of error, the response will be a 400 status code with a JSON::API errors object.

PATCH|PUT /items/:id

Updates an existing item. Body should be in the standard format shown above with the following exceptions:

  • Any field which is omitted will be unmodified.
  • If status is changed to played, but finished is omitted, it will be set to the current time.
  • If status is played, after is ignored.
  • audio-identifier is always ignored in update and cannot be changed.

The response will be a 204 status code if successful or a 400 status code with a JSON::API errors object if invalid.

DELETE /items/:id

Removes the specified item from the database.

Response will be a 204 status code if successful.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'bragi'

And then execute:

bundle exec

Or install it yourself as:

gem install bragi

After installing, mount the engine at the root of your app.

Note: Mounting at another endpoint will probably work, but is untested.

config/routes.rb

Rails.application.routes.draw do
  mount Bragi::Engine => '/'
end

Run the following to copy the migrations for this engine to your project:

bin/rake bragi:install:migrations
bin/rake db:migrate

Authentication

In order to implement authentication, create an authentication class, and inject it in an initializer:

config/initializers/bragi.rb

# frozen_string_literal: true

class StaticAuthPlugin
  def fetch_uid(_request)
    # This would mean that every request is assumed to belong to user 1234.
    '1234'
  end
end

Bragi.config do |c|
  c.auth_plugin = StaticAuthPlugin.new
end

The authentication class must have a #fetch_uid method which accepts a request object. It must return a string UID of some kind if authenticated or nil if not.
