cannot use genshi template with a widget

Reported by: max Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.5
Component: TG Widgets Version: 1.0b1
Severity: normal Keywords: genshi widget template plugin


I've declared a widget that uses Genshi for templating:

class SimpleDataGrid(widgets.DataGrid):
    template = 'genshi:spaca.templates.simplegrid'
    javascript = [widgets.mochikit, widgets.JSLink('spaca', 'spa_summary.js')]

At render time TurboGears produces an exception:

File 'D:\\Projects\\Spaca\\spaca\\templates\\related_something.py', line 86 in _pull
File 'c:\\python24\\lib\\site-packages\\TurboGears-1.0b1-py2.4.egg\\turbogears\\widgets\\meta.py', line 107 in lockwidget
  output = self.__class__.display(self, *args, **kw)

This is a feature targeted at 1.1. It's currently only implemented in trunk, not in 1.0b1.

If you're using trunk already please reopen.

A note to our Trac admins: A new version category for trunk would eb a good idea :)

  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Component changed from unassigned to genshi
  • Version changed from 1.0b1 to trunk
  • Milestone set to 1.1
  • Keywords genshi added
  • Resolution wontfix deleted

(reopening, retargeting version per request, ready to use genshi templates with widgets against trunk)

Using a quickstarted identity app 'tgtest', quickstarted with TurboGears trunk, I'd like to start with a simple user widget, with tests.

Added files:




Added file contents:


from widgets import *


from turbogears.widgets import Widget

class UserWidget(Widget):
    template        = 'genshi:tgtest.widgets.templates.user'
    params          = ['user']

user_widget = UserWidget()

tgtest\widgets\widgets\templates\__init__.py: (blank)


<li xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"


from turbogears import testutil, database
from tgtest.model import User
from tgtest.widgets import UserWidget

class TestUserWidget(testutil.DBTest):
    def get_model(self):
        return User

    def setUp(self):
        "Intialise test database with one User"
        User(user_name = 'testuser',
             email_address = 'test.user@acme.com',
             display_name = 'Test User',
             password = 'wordpass')

    def test_creation(self):
        "setUp should create user"
        user = User.get(1)
        assert user.display_name == 'Test User'
        widget = UserWidget(user)

    def test_render(self):
        "render widget using setUp created user"
        user = User.get(1)
        assert user.display_name == 'Test User'
        widget = UserWidget(user)
        rendered = widget.render()
        print rendered
        assert 'Test User</li>' in rendered

As the project was quickstarted against trunk, genshi templates are already the default.

$ egrep -r --include=*.cfg 'genshi|kid|widgets' .
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:tg.defaultview = "genshi"
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:# The following genshi settings determine the settings used by the genshi serializer.
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:# genshi.outputformat="html"
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:# referenced by the templates?  Note that genshi's default is "ascii".
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:# genshi.assume_encoding="utf-8"
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:# genshi.encoding="utf-8"
./tgtest/config/app.cfg:# tg.include_widgets = []

The following AttributeError? is raised:

$ nosetests
ERROR: render widget using setUp created user
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/software/tgtest/tgtest/tests/test_widgets.py", line 29, in test_render

    template = self.template_c,

    divider = classname.rfind(".")
AttributeError: 'MarkupTemplate' object has no attribute 'rfind'

Ran 14 tests in 3.799s

FAILED (errors=1)

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by alberto

The widgets' support for genshi in the trunk is probably broken in other parts too because it was an experiment which later lead to ToscaWidgets?. I'll probably revert changes on the trunk widgets to sync them with 1.0's. TW are going to replace 1.0 widgets in 2.0 so you're probably better off using them instead if you need genshi widgets.

I'll probably tag the trunk as 1.1 because it is going to suffer major overhaul soon when work on 2.0 begins. It'll probably remain in a unusable state for a while until major functionality is ported from 1.1.

1.1 Should remain fully compatible with 1.0 and serve as a stepping stone to 2.0.

I wouldn't recommend running off the trunk ATM.

  • Milestone changed from 1.1 to __unclassified__

Batch moved into unclassified from 1.1 to properly track progress on the later

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by Chris Arndt

  • Status changed from reopened to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Version changed from trunk to 1.0b1
  • Component changed from genshi to Widgets

TG widgets only support Kid templates. ToscaWidgets supports multiple template engines.

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by chrisz

  • Milestone changed from __unclassified__ to 1.5

TG 1.5 widgets now also support Genshi templates. If it's not working there, please reopen.
