def load_role(role_name):
    Function that has to be defined to be able to retrieve the actual role
    object from the user.role attribute. In this simple case, we could
    actually assign the role object directly to user.role, in which this
    function would simply be the identity function (lambda x: x). This extra
    step becomes needed however in case the role object is more complex
    and it can't be simply pickled anymore.

def init_users():
    Initializing users by hardcoding password. Another use case is to read
    usernames from an external file (like /etc/passwd).

    user.set_and_encrypt_password('password', salt='123')

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
