[PATCH] Allow custom REST-like methods in RestController

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


This allows to have a consistent API in case you have custom methods in your RestController, exposing them the same way as the default REST verbs.

For example you can define get_archive() and post_archive() in your "movies" controller from the moviedemo example:

    custom_actions = ['archive']

    def get_archive(self, movie_id, **kwargs):
        """Display a ARCHIVE confirmation form."""

    def post_archive(self, movie_id):
        """Archive a movie"""

or just

    custom_actions = ['archive']

    def archive(self, movie_id):
        """Archive a project"""

and use them like this:

GET /movies/1/archive

POST /movies/1?_method=ARCHIVE

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

implemented in  http://bitbucket.org/turbogears/tg-dev/changeset/39da27c2c339/ (2.1b2 release) uses _custom_actions instead of custom_actions for the attribute. Needs to be documented. Tests have been added for the use case.
