Pyramid TODOs
Must-Have (before 1.0)
- Test on GAE, Jython, PyPy, IronPython.
- Add docs for httpexceptions module for each webob.exc class that inherits
from WSGIHTTPException.
- Add a ``handler`` ZCML directive. This implies some slightly dicey
refactoring of the configurator to allow it to generate ZCML
"discriminators" for views and routes.
- Provide a .flash API on session object.
- Make default renderer work (renderer registered with no name, which is
active for every view unless the view names a specific renderer).
- Use ``@register_view`` instead of ``@view_config`` and change view docs to
use "view registration" instead of "view configuration".
- Remove calls to config.begin()/config.end() from startup config code in
tutorials and paster templates (no longer required).
- SQLAlchemy idiomatics:
<RaFromBRC> mcdonc: those paster templates all look pretty good... the
only thing i'd consider is adjusting your config variable names to match
exactly what sqlalchemy uses as parameter names, see here:
<RaFromBRC> mcdonc: especially in the pylons_sqla ini file, where the db
initialization is mixed in w/ the app config...
<RaFromBRC> ... i'd use "sqlalchemy.PARAMETER" for all of the sqla
settings, so it could easily be handed to engine_from_config w/o any need
to parse by hand
<RaFromBRC> mcdonc: in the other ini files, where sqlalchemy is given its
own part, the "sqlalchemy." prefix probably isn't necessary, but matching
the parameter names (e.g. 'url' instead of 'db_string') is still probably
a good idea
- Non-bwcompat use of threadlocals that need to be documented or ameliorated:
resource.OverrideProvider._get_overrides: can't credibly be removed,
because it stores an overrideprovider as a module-scope global.
traversal.traverse: this API is a stepchild, and needs to be changed.
Configurator.add_translation_dirs: not passed any context but a message,
can't credibly be removed.
- Better ``config.add_handler`` documentation.
- Create a ``docs`` directory for each paster template.
- Remove "BFG" from Pyramid-specific environ variables.
- translationdir ZCML directive use of ``path_spec`` should maybe die.
- Add CRSF token creation/checking machinery (only "should have" vs. "must
have" because I'm not sure it belongs in Pyramid.. it definitely must exist
in formgen libraries, and *might* belong in Pyramid).
- Change "Cleaning up After a Request" in the urldispatch chapter to
use ``request.add_response_callback``.
- Supply ``X-Vhm-Host`` support.
- Basic WSGI documentation (pipeline / app / server).
- Fix message catalog extraction / compilation documentation.
- Change docs about creating a venusian decorator to not use ZCA.
- ``decorator=`` parameter to bfg_view.
- Try to better explain the relationship between a renderer and a
template in the templates chapter and elsewhere. Scan the
documentation for reference to a renderer as *only* view
configuration (it's a larger concept now).
- Create a ``render_view`` that works by using config.derive_view
against an existing view instead of querying the registry.
- Create a function which performs a recursive request.
- Debug option to print route matching decision.
- Debug option to print view matching decision.
- Script or paster command that prints, for a given URL, the views
that might match. Underneath each potentially matching route, list
the predicates required. Underneath each route+predicate set, print
each view that might match and its predicates. E.g. with the input
URL ``/foo``::
'/foo' (foo_xhr)
xhr = True
(no view predicates)
'/{action}' (action_route)
request_method = 'POST'
action = '^foo$'
request_method = 'GET'
action = '^foo$'
- Provide a response_cookies attribute on the request for rendered
responses that can be used as input to response.set_cookie.
- Raise an exception when a value in response_headerlist is not a
string or decide to encode.
- Update App engine chapter with less creaky directions.
- Add functionality that mocks the behavior of ``repoze.browserid``.
