$ cd horus
$ pip install -e .

If you would like to run the tests you should run:

$ pip install -e .[testing]

Design Decisions

Views

A view will be the utility functions needed to interface with Pyramid. They will be extremely light weight, they should validate and parse JSON/form data, then create any services and facades required and should contain no business logic.

Service

A service is a class that will represent all the business logic required to do a certain responsibility like creating authenticating a user.

The facade should not have any access to Pyramid or a persistence store. So there should be no DBSession or Request available, if the facade needs database access it should be done through a service.

Backend

A backend is an abstraction around the data access. There should be as little business logic in a repository as possible, it should be for connecting to a data store (postgres, zodb, mongodb) and returning the result set.

Mapping functions from database rows to model classes should be done here.

Flows

Flows represent a type of authentication that will include a specific set of services.

local The local flow represents that standard form workflow where you present a username/password form that authenticates the user from a database.

The local flow includes things like registration and e-mail verification.

ldap The ldap flow will authenticate against an LDAP server, no registration or activation is required.

Example Configuration

pyramid.includes = horus

horus.backend = horus.backends.sqla
horus.backend.sqlalchemy_url = postgresql://

horus.flows =
  local
  fb

local.impl = horus.flows.local
local.

fb.impl = horus.flows.facebook
fb.access_token =
fb.
config.override_assets(
  to_override='horus.flows.local:templates/',
  override_with='myapp.templates/')
