Storage

Different frameworks support different ORMs, Storage solves the different interfaces moving the common API to mixins classes. These mixins are used on apps when defining the different models used by python-social-auth.

Social User

This model associates a social account data with a user in the system, it contains the provider name and user ID (uid) which should identify the social account in the remote provider, plus some extra data (extra_data) which is JSON encoded field with extra information from the provider (usually avatars and similar).

When implementing this model, it must inherits from UserMixin and extend the needed methods:

  • Username:

    @classmethod
    def get_username(cls, user):
        """Return the username for given user"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def username_max_length(cls):
        """Return the max length for username"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
  • User model:

    @classmethod
    def user_model(cls):
        """Return the user model"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def changed(cls, user):
        """The given user instance is ready to be saved"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def user_exists(cls, username):
        """
        Return True/False if a User instance exists with the given arguments.
        Arguments are directly passed to filter() manager method.
        """
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def create_user(cls, username, email=None):
        """Create a user with given username and (optional) email"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def get_user(cls, pk):
        """Return user instance for given id"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
  • Social user:

    @classmethod
    def get_social_auth(cls, provider, uid):
        """Return UserSocialAuth for given provider and uid"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def get_social_auth_for_user(cls, user):
        """Return all the UserSocialAuth instances for given user"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def create_social_auth(cls, user, uid, provider):
        """Create a UserSocialAuth instance for given user"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
  • Social disconnection:

    @classmethod
    def allowed_to_disconnect(cls, user, backend_name, association_id=None):
        """Return if it's safe to disconnect the social account for the
        given user"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    
    @classmethod
    def disconnect(cls, name, user, association_id=None):
        """Disconnect the social account for the given user"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')
    

Nonce

This is a helper class for OpenId mechanism, it stores a one-use number, shouldn’t be used by the project since it’s for internal use only.

When implementing this model, it must inherits from NonceMixin, and override the needed method:

@classmethod
def use(cls, server_url, timestamp, salt):
    """Create a Nonce instance"""
    raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')

Association

Another OpenId helper class, it stores basic data to keep the OpenId association. Like Nonce this is for internal use only.

When implementing this model, it must inherits from AssociationMixin, and override the needed methods:

@classmethod
def store(cls, server_url, association):
    """Create an Association instance"""
    raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')

@classmethod
def get(cls, *args, **kwargs):
    """Get an Association instance"""
    raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')

@classmethod
def remove(cls, ids_to_delete):
    """Remove an Association instance"""
    raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')

Validation code

This class is used to keep track of email validations codes following the usual email validation mechanism of sending an email to the user with a unique code. This model is used by the partial pipeline social_core.pipeline.mail.mail_validation. Check the docs at Email validation in pipeline docs.

When implementing the model for your framework only one method needs to be overridden:

@classmethod
def get_code(cls, code):
    """Return the Code instance with the given code value"""
    raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')

Storage interface

There’s a helper class used by strategies to hide the real models names under a common API, an instance of this class is used by strategies to access the storage modules.

When implementing this class it must inherits from BaseStorage, add the needed models references and implement the needed method:

class StorageImplementation(BaseStorage):
    user = UserModel
    nonce = NonceModel
    association = AssociationModel
    code = CodeModel

    @classmethod
    def is_integrity_error(cls, exception):
        """Check if given exception flags an integrity error in the DB"""
        raise NotImplementedError('Implement in subclass')

SQLAlchemy and Django mixins

Currently there are partial implementations of mixins for SQLAlchemy ORM and Django ORM with common code used later on current implemented applications.

Note

When using SQLAlchemy ORM and ZopeTransactionExtension, it’s recommended to use the transaction application to handle them.

Models Examples

Check for current implementations for Django App, Flask App, Pyramid App, and Webpy App for examples of implementations.
