@https decorator crashes outside of root

Reported by: seedifferently Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1b2
Component: TurboGears Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


The pylons.decorators.secure @https decorator throws an error if it is used anywhere other than root.py (i.e., in a "sub-controller"):

AttributeError: 'SecureController' object has no attribute '_py_object'

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a brand new quickstart project
  2. Add the decorator import to a sub-controller method (i.e. "some_where" method in controllers/secure.py)
  3. Try to load /secc/some_where/ in a browser

I have tested this in both TG 2.0.3 and 2.1 alpha

As a workaround, I have been able to get this working by adding:

_py_object = request.environ['pylons.pylons']

Right below the class definition.

I don't think we tried to make this work....

Your solution is fine, though I might make a SubController? class in lib.py and put that in the subcontroller, and just inherit from that in all your actual subcontrollers.

Other than changing the pylons decorator, I'm not sure what else we can do about this...

  • Milestone changed from __unclassified__ to 2.1b1

The problem here seems to be that pylons.decorators.secure wants a "Pylons controller" (see  http://bitbucket.org/bbangert/pylons/src/tip/pylons/decorators/util.py#cl-5) since TG controllers are not pylons controllers I think we shouldn't be setting that attribute. But I may be wrong.

I suggest you open a bug with the pylons team (or get them to comment here) to see if we should be setting that attribute in non-routes controllers.

I should mention that this is fixed by adding our own @https decorator in tg.decorators that works with TurboGears decorators, not by fixing pylons.
