  • YUI 3 CSS in the base template
  • 99% test coverage

What You Don't Get

  • Any express or implied warranties, including, without limitation, the implied warranties of merchantibility and fitness for a particular purpose.


It's easy enough to add the stucco_auth views to your application by calling:

from pyramid.config import Configurator
config = Configurator(...)

Unfortunately, stucco_auth requires many things from a host Pyramid application before it will work properly:

  • A configured authentication and authorization policy. Login and logout views don't make sense otherwise.
  • A transaction-managed SQLAlchemy session made available as request.db
  • stucco_auth's schema instantiated into that database
  • request.session for flash messages
  • Jinja2 templating
  • A stucco_auth.interfaces.IAuthRoot instance in the resource tree. login/ and logout/ are resolved relative to this object.

The demo application, stucco_auth.main(), provides one example of how to set this up.
