Anyblok mainly depends on:

Blok

A blok is a collection of source code files. These files are loaded in the registry only if the blok state is installed.

To declare a blok you have to:

  1. Declare a Python package:

    The name of the module is not really significant
    --> Just create an ``__init__.py`` file
    
  2. Declare a blok class in the __init__.py of the Python package:

    from anyblok.blok import Blok
    
    
    class MyBlok(Blok):
        """ Short description of the blok """
        ...
        version = '1.0.0'
    

Here are the available attributes for the blok:

Attribute Description
__doc__ Short description of the blok (in the docstring)
version the version of the blok (required because no value by default)
autoinstall boolean, if True this blok is automatically installed
priority installation order of the blok to installation
readme Path of the ‘readme’ file of the blok, by default README.rst
required List of the required dependancies for install
optional List of the optional dependencies, their are installed if they are found
conflicting List the blok which are not be installed to install this blok
conditionnal If the bloks of this list ares installed the this blok will be automaticly installed

And the methods that define blok behaviours:

Method Description
import_declaration_module classmethod, call to import all python module which declare object from blok.
reload_declaration_module classmethod, call to reload the import all the python module which declare object
update Action to do when the blok is being install or updated. This method has one argument latest_version (None for install)
uninstall Action to do when the blok is being uninstalled
load Action to do when the server starts
pre_migration Action to do when the blok is being installed or updated to make some specific migration, before auto migration. This method has one argument latest_version (None for install)
post_migration Action to do when the blok is being installed or updated to make some specific migration, after auto migration. This method has one argument latest_version (None for install)

And some facility:

Method Description
import_file facility to import data

Note

The version 0.2.0 change the import and reload of the module python

  1. Declare the entry point in the setup.py:

    from setuptools import setup
    
    
    setup(
        ...
        entry_points={
            'bloks': [
                'web=anyblok_web_server.bloks.web:Web',
            ],
        },
        ...
    )
    

Note

The version 0.4.0, required all the declaration of the bloks on the entry point bloks

Declaration

In AnyBlok, everything is a declaration (Model, Mixin, ...) and you have to import the Declarations class:

from anyblok.declarations import Declarations

The Declarations has two main methods

Method name Description
register

Add the declaration in the registry This method can be used as:

  • A function:

    class Foo:
        pass
    
    register(``Declarations.type``, cls_=Foo)
    
  • A decorator:

    @register(``Declarations.type``)
    class Foo:
        pass
    
unregister

Remove an existing declaration from the registry. This method is only used as a function:

from ... import Foo

unregister(``Declarations.type``, cls_=Foo)

Note

Declarations.type must be replaced by:

  • Model
  • ...

Declarations.type defines the behaviour of the register and unregister methods

Model

A Model is an AnyBlok class referenced in the registry. The registry is hierarchical. The model Foo is accessed by registry.Foo and the model Foo.Bar is accessed by registry.Foo.Bar.

To declare a Model you must use register:

from anyblok.declarations import Declarations


register = Declarations.register
Model = Declarations.Model


@register(Model):
class Foo:
    pass

The name of the model is defined by the name of the class (here Foo). The namespace of Foo is defined by the hierarchy under Model. In this example, Foo is in Model, you can access at Foo by Model.Foo.

Warning

Model.Foo is not the Foo Model. It is an avatar of Foo only used for the declaration.

If you define the Bar model, under the Foo model, you should write:

@register(Model.Foo)
class Bar:
    """ Description of the model """
    pass

Note

The description is used by the model System.Model to describe the model

The declaration name of Bar is Model.Foo.Bar. The namespace of Bar in the registry is Foo.Bar. The namespace of Foo in the registry is Foo:

Foo = registry.Foo
Bar = registry.Foo.Bar

Some models have a table in the database. The name of the table is by default the namespace in lowercase with . replaced with ..

Note

The registry is accessible only in the method of the models:

@register(Model)
class Foo:

    def myMethod(self):
        registry = self.registry
        Foo = registry.Foo

The main goal of AnyBlok is not only to add models in the registry, but also to easily overload these models. The declaration stores the Python class in the registry. If one model already exist then the second declaration of this model overloads the first model:

@register(Model)
class Foo:
    x = 1


@register(Model)
class Foo:
    x = 2


------------------------------------------

Foo = registry.Foo
assert Foo.x == 2

Here are the parameters of the register method for Model:

Param Description
cls_ Define the real class if register is used as a function not as a decorator
name_

Overload the name of the class:

 @register(Model, name_='Bar')
 class Foo:
     pass

Declarations.Bar
tablename

Overload the name of the table:

@register(Model, tablename='my_table')
class Foo:
    pass
is_sql_view Boolean flag, which indicateis if the model is based on a SQL view
tablename

Define the real name of the table. By default the table name is the registry name without the declaration type, and with ‘.’ replaced with ‘_’. This attribute is also used to map an existing table declared by a previous Model. Allowed values:

  • str

    @register(Model, tablename='foo')
    class Bar:
        pass
    
  • declaration

    @register(Model, tablename=Model.Foo)
    class Bar:
        pass
    

Warning

Model can only inherit simple python class, Mixin or Model.

Non SQL Model

This is the default model. This model has no tables. It is used to organize the registry or for specific process.:

#register(Model)
class Foo:
    pass

SQL Model

A SQL Model is a simple Model with Column or RelationShip. For each model, one table will be created.:

@register(Model)
class Foo:
    # SQL Model with mapped with the table ``foo``

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    # id is a column on the table ``foo``

Warning

Each SQL Model have to have got one or more primary key

In the case or you need to add some configuration in the SQLAlchemy class attrinute:

  • __table_args__
  • __mapper_args__

you can use the next class methods

method description
define_table_args

Add options for SQLAlchemy table build:

  • Constraints on multiple columns
  • ...
@classmethod
def define_table_args(cls, table_args, properties):
    # table_args: tuple of the known
    #             __table_args\_\_
    # properties: properties of the assembled model
    #             columns, registry name
    return my_tuple_value
define_mapper_args

Add options for SQLAlchemy mappers build:

  • polymorphisme
  • ...
@classmethod
def define_mapper_args(cls, mapper_args,
                       properties):
    # table_args: dict of the known
    #             __mapper_args\_\_
    # properties: properties of the assembled model
    #             columns, registry name
    return my_dict_value

Note

New in 0.4.0

View Model

A View Model as SQL Model. Need the declaration of Column and / or RelationShip. In the register the param is_sql_view must be True and the View Model must define the sqlalchemy_view_declaration classmethod.:

@register(Model, is_sql_view=True)
class Foo:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    name = String()

    @classmethod
    def sqlalchemy_view_declaration(cls):
        from sqlalchemy.sql import select
        Model = cls.registry.System.Model
        return select([Model.id.label('id'), Model.name.label('name')])

sqlalchemy_view_declaration must return a select query corresponding to the request of the SQL view.

Column

To declare a Column in a model, add a column on the table of the model.:

from anyblok.declarations import Declarations
from anyblok.column import Integer, String


@Declarations.register(Declaration.Model)
class MyModel:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    name = String()

Note

Since the version 0.4.0 the Columns are not Declarations

List of the column type:

  • DateTime: use datetime.datetime, with pytz for the timezone
  • Decimal: use decimal.Decimal
  • Float
  • Time: use datetime.time
  • BigInteger
  • Boolean
  • Date: use datetime.date
  • Integer
  • Interval: use datetime.timedelta
  • LargeBinary
  • SmallInteger
  • String
  • Text
  • uString
  • uText
  • Selection
  • Json
  • Sequence
  • Color: use colour.Color
  • Password: use sqlalchemy_utils.types.password.Password
  • UUID: use uuid
  • URL: use furl.furl

All the columns have the following optional parameters:

Parameter Description
label Label of the column, If None the label is the name of column capitalized
default

define a default value for this column.

..warning:

The default value depends of the column type

..note:

Put the name of a classmethod to call it
index boolean flag to define whether the column is indexed
nullable Defines if the column must be filled or not
primary_key Boolean flag to define if the column is a primary key or not
unique Boolean flag to define if the column value must be unique or not
foreign_key

Define a foreign key on this column to another column of another model:

@register(Model)
class Foo:
    id : Integer(primary_key=True)

@register(Model)
class Bar:
    id : Integer(primary_key=True)
    foo: Integer(foreign_key=Model.Foo.use('id'))

If the Model Declarations doesn’t exist yet, you can use the regisrty name:

foo: Integer(foreign_key='Model.Foo=>id'))
db_column_name String to define the real column name in the table, different from the model attribute name
encrypt_key

Crypt the column in the database. can take the values:

  • a String ex: foo = String(encrypt_key=’SecretKey’)
  • a classmethod name on the model
  • True value, search in the Configuration default_encrypt_key the value, they are no default. if no value exist, an exception is raised

..warning:

The python package cryptography must be installed

Other attribute for String and uString:

Param Description
size Column size in the table

Other attribute for Selection:

Param Description
size column size in the table
selections dict or dict.items to give the available key with the associate label

Other attribute for Sequence:

Param Description
size column size in the table
code code of the sequence
formater formater of the sequence

Other attribute for Color:

Param Description
size column max size in the table

Other attribute for Password:

Param Description
size password max size in the table
crypt_context see the option for the python lib passlib

..warning:

The Password column can be found with the query meth:

Other attribute for UUID:

Param Description
binary Stores a UUID in the database natively when it can and falls back to a BINARY(16) or a CHAR(32)

Other attribute for DateTime:

Param Description
auto_update Boolean (default: False) if True the value will be update when the session is flushed

RelationShip

To declare a RelationShip in a model, add a RelationShip on the table of the model.:

from anyblok.declarations import Declarations
from anyblok.column import Integer
from anyblok.relationship import Many2One


@Declarations.register(Declaration.Model)
class MyModel:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)


@Declarations.register(Declaration.Model)
class MyModel2:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    mymodel = Many2One(model=Declaration.Model.MyModel)

Note

Since the version 0.4.0 the RelationShip don’t come from Declarations

List of the RelationShip type:

  • One2One
  • Many2One
  • One2Many
  • Many2Many

Parameters of a RelationShip:

Param Description
label The label of the column
model The remote model
remote_columns The column name on the remote model, if no remote columns are defined the remote column will be the primary column of the remote model

Parameters of the One2One field:

Param Description
column_names Name of the local column. If the column doesn’t exist then this column will be created. If no column name then the name will be ‘tablename’ + ‘_’ + name of the relationships
nullable Indicates if the column name is nullable or not
backref Remote One2One link with the column name

Parameters of the Many2One field:

Parameter Description
column_names Name of the local column. If the column doesn’t exist then this column will be created. If no column name then the name will be ‘tablename’ + ‘_’ + name of the relationships
nullable Indicate if the column name is nullable or not
unique Add unique information in created collumn
one2many Opposite One2Many link with this Many2one
foreign_key_options take a dict with the option for create the foreign key
Many2One(model=The.Model, nullable=True,
         foreign_key_options={'ondelete': cascade})

Parameters of the One2Many field:

Parameter Description
primaryjoin Join condition between the relationship and the remote column
many2one Opposite Many2One link with this One2Many

Parameters of the Many2Many field:

Parameter Description
join_table many2many intermediate table between both models
m2m_remote_columns Column name in the join table which have got the foreign key to the remote model
local_columns Name of the local column which holds the foreign key to the join table. If the column does not exist then this column will be created. If no column name then the name will be ‘tablename’ + ‘_’ + name of the relationship
m2m_local_columns Column name in the join table which holds the foreign key to the model
many2many Opposite Many2Many link with this relationship

Note

Since 0.4.0, when the relationnal table is created by AnyBlok, the m2m_columns becomme foreign keys

Field

To declare a Field in a model, add a Field on the Model, this is not a SQL column.:

from anyblok.declarations import Declarations
from anyblok.field import Function
from anyblok.column import Integer


@Declarations.register(Declaration.Model)
class MyModel:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    first_name = String()
    last_name = String()
    name = Function(fget='fget', fset='fset', fdel='fdel', fexpr='fexpr')

    def fget(self):
        return '{0} {1}'.format(self.first_name, self.last_name)

    def fset(self, value):
        self.first_name, self.last_name = value.split(' ', 1)

    def fdel(self):
        self.first_name = self.last_name = None

    @classmethod
    def fexpr(cls):
        return func.concat(cls.first_name, ' ', cls.last_name)

List of the Field type:

  • Function

Parameters for Field.Function

Parameter Description
fget

name of the method to call to get the value of field:

def fget(self):
    return '{0} {1}'.format(self.first_name,
                            self.last_name)
fset

name of the method to call to set the value of field:

def fset(self):
    self.first_name, self.last_name = value.split(' ',
                                                  1)
fdel

name of the method to call to del the value of field:

def fdel(self):
    self.first_name = self.last_name = None
fexp

name of the class method to call to filter on the field:

@classmethod
def fexp(self):
    return func.concat(cls.first_name, ' ',
                       cls.last_name)

Mixin

A Mixin looks like a Model, but has no tables. A Mixin adds behaviour to a Model with Python inheritance:

@register(Mixin)
class MyMixin:

    def foo():
        pass

@register(Model)
class MyModel(Mixin.MyMixin):
    pass

----------------------------------

assert hasattr(registry.MyModel, 'foo')

If you inherit a mixin, all the models previously using the base mixin also benefit from the overload:

@register(Mixin)
class MyMixin:
    pass

@register(Model)
class MyModel(Mixin.MyMixin):
    pass

@register(Mixin)
class MyMixin:

    def foo():
        pass

----------------------------------

assert hasattr(registry.MyModel, 'foo')

SQL View

An SQL view is a model, with the argument is_sql_view=True in the register. and the classmethod sqlalchemy_view_declaration:

@register(Model)
class T1:
    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    code = String()
    val = Integer()

@register(Model)
class T2:
    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    code = String()
    val = Integer()

@register(Model, is_sql_view=True)
class TestView:
    code = String(primary_key=True)
    val1 = Integer()
    val2 = Integer()

    @classmethod
    def sqlalchemy_view_declaration(cls):
        """ This method must return the query of the view """
        T1 = cls.registry.T1
        T2 = cls.registry.T2
        query = select([T1.code.label('code'),
                        T1.val.label('val1'),
                        T2.val.label('val2')])
        return query.where(T1.code == T2.code)

Core

Core is a low level set of declarations for all the Models of AnyBlok. Core adds general behaviour to the application.

Warning

Core can not inherit Model, Mixin, Core, or other declaration type.

Base

Add a behaviour in all the Models, Each Model inherits Base. For instance, the fire method of the event come from Core.Base.

from anyblok import Declarations


@Declarations.register(Declarations.Core)
class Base:
    pass

SqlBase

Only the Models with Field, Column, RelationShip inherits Core.SqlBase. For instance, the insert method only makes sense for the Model with a table.

from anyblok import Declarations


@Declarations.register(Declarations.Core)
class SqlBase:
    pass

SqlViewBase

Like SqlBase, only the SqlView inherits this Core class.

from anyblok import Declarations


@Declarations.register(Declarations.Core)
class SqlViewBase:
    pass

Query

Overloads the SQLAlchemy Query class.

from anyblok import Declarations


@Declarations.register(Declarations.Core)
class Query
    pass

Session

Overloads the SQLAlchemy Session class.

from anyblok import Declarations


@Declarations.register(Declarations.Core)
class Session
    pass

InstrumentedList

from anyblok import Declarations


@Declarations.register(Declarations.Core)
class InstrumentedList
    pass

InstrumentedList is the class returned by the Query for all the list result like:

  • query.all()
  • relationship list (Many2Many, One2Many)

Adds some features like getting a specific property or calling a method on all the elements of the list:

MyModel.query().all().foo(bar)

Sharing a table between more than one model

SQLAlchemy allows two methods to share a table between two or more mapping class:

  • Inherit an SQL Model in a non-SQL Model:

    @register(Model)
    class Test:
        id = Integer(primary_key=True)
        name = String()
    
    @register(Model)
    class Test2(Model.Test):
        pass
    
    ----------------------------------------
    
    t1 = Test1.insert(name='foo')
    assert Test2.query().filter(Test2.id == t1.id,
                                Test2.name == t1.name).count() == 1
    
  • Share the __table__.

    AnyBlok cannot give the table at the declaration, because the table does not exist yet. But during the assembly, if the table exists and the model has the name of this table, AnyBlok directly links the table. To define the table you must use the named argument tablename in the register

    @register(Model)
    class Test:
        id = Integer(primary_key=True)
        name = String()
    
    @register(Model, tablename=Model.Test)
    class Test2:
        id = Integer(primary_key=True)
        name = String()
    
    ----------------------------------------
    
    t1 = Test1.insert(name='foo')
    assert Test2.query().filter(Test2.id == t1.id,
                                Test2.name == t1.name).count() == 1
    

    Warning

    There are no checks on the existing columns.

Sharing a view between more than one model

Sharing a view between two Models is the merge between:

  • Creating a View Model
  • Sharing the same table between more than one model.

Warning

For the view you must redined the column in the Model corresponding to the view with inheritance or simple Share by tablename

Specific behaviour

AnyBlok implements some facilities to help developers

Column encryption

You can encrypt some columns to protect them. The python package cryptography must be installed:

pip install cryptography

Use the encrypt_key attribute on the column to define the key of cryptography:

@register(Model)
class MyModel:

    # define the specific encrypt_key
    encrypt_column_1 = String(encrypt_key='SecretKey')

    # Use the default encrypt_key
    encrypt_column_2 = String(encrypt_key=Configuration.get('default_encrypt_key')
    encrypt_column_3 = String(encrypt_key=True)

    # Use the class method to get encrypt_key
    encrypt_column_1 = String(encrypt_key='get_encrypt_key')

    @classmethod
    def get_encrypt_key(cls):
        return 'SecretKey'

The encryption works for any Columns.

Cache

The cache allows to call a method more than once without having any difference in the result. But the cache must also depend on the registry database and the model. The cache of anyblok can be put on a Model, a Core or a Mixin method. If the cache is on a Core or a Mixin then the usecase depends on the registry name of the assembled model.

Use cache or classmethod_cache to apply a cache on a method:

from anyblok.declarations import cache, classmethod_cache

Warning

cache depend of the instance, if you want add a cache for any instance you must use classmethod_cache

Cache the method of a Model:

@register(Model)
class Foo:

    @classmethod_cache()
    def bar(cls):
        import random
        return random.random()


-----------------------------------------

assert Foo.bar() == Foo.bar()

Cache the method coming from a Mixin:

@register(Mixin)
class MFoo:

    @classmethod_cache()
    def bar(cls):
        import random
        return random.random()

@register(Model)
class Foo(Mixin.MFoo):
    pass

@register(Model)
class Foo2(Mixin.MFoo):
    pass


-----------------------------------------

assert Foo.bar() == Foo.bar()
assert Foo2.bar() == Foo2.bar()
assert Foo.bar() != Foo2.bar()

Cache the method coming from a Mixin:

@register(Core)
class Base

    @classmethod_cache()
    def bar(cls):
        import random
        return random.random()

@register(Model)
class Foo:
    pass

@register(Model)
class Foo2:
    pass


-----------------------------------------

assert Foo.bar() == Foo.bar()
assert Foo2.bar() == Foo2.bar()
assert Foo.bar() != Foo2.bar()

Event

Simple implementation of a synchronous event for AnyBlok or SQLAlchemy:

@register(Model)
class Event:
    pass

@register(Model)
class Test:

        x = 0

        @listen(Model.Event, 'fireevent')
        def my_event(cls, a=1, b=1):
            cls.x = a * b

---------------------------------------------

registry.Event.fire('fireevent', a=2)
assert registry.Test.x == 2

Note

The decorated method is seen as a classmethod

This API gives:

  • a decorator listen which binds the decorated method to the event.
  • fire method with the following parameters (Only for AnyBlok event):
    • event: string name of the event
    • *args: positionnal arguments to pass att the decorated method
    • **kwargs: named argument to pass at the decorated method

It is possible to overload an existing event listener, just by overloading the decorated method:

@register(Model)
class Test:

    @classmethod
    def my_event(cls, **kwarg):
        res = super(Test, cls).my_event(**kwargs)
        return res * 2

---------------------------------------------

registry.Event.fire('fireevent', a=2)
assert registry.Test.x == 4

Warning

The overload does not take the listen decorator but the classmethod decorator, because the method name is already seen as an event listener

Some of the Attribute events of the Mapper events are implemented. See the SQLAlchemy ORM Events http://docs.sqlalchemy.org/en/latest/orm/events.html#orm-events

You may also add a classmethod with the name event type + '_orm_event'. The event will be automaticly create with on the Model and the event type without arguments:

@register(Model)
class Test:

        x = 0

        @classmethod
        def after_insert_orm_event(cls, mapper, connection, target):
            # call when a new instance of Test is added in the session
            pass

        @listen('Model.Test', 'after_insert')
        def another_orm_event(cls, mapper, connection, target):
            # it is the same effect as ``after_insert_orm_event``,
            # it is call after the add of a new instance in the session

Hybrid method

Facility to create an SQLAlchemy hybrid method. See this page: http://docs.sqlalchemy.org/en/latest/orm/extensions/hybrid.html#module-sqlalchemy.ext.hybrid

AnyBlok allows to define a hybrid_method which can be overloaded, because the real sqlalchemy decorator is applied after assembling in the last overload of the decorated method:

from anyblok.declarations import hybrid_method

@register(Model)
class Test:

    @hybrid_method
    def my_hybrid_method(self):
        return ...

Pre-commit hook

It is possible to call specific classmethods just before the commit of the session:

@register(Model)
class Test:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    val = Integer(default=0)

    @classmethod
    def method2call_just_before_the_commit(cls, *a, **kw):
        pass

-----------------------------------------------------

registry.Test.precommit_hook('method2call_just_before_the_commit', *a, **kw)

Post-commit hook

It is possible to call specific classmethods just after the commit of the session:

@register(Model)
class Test:

    id = Integer(primary_key=True)
    val = Integer(default=0)

    @classmethod
    def method2call_just_after_the_commit(cls, *a, **kw):
        pass

-----------------------------------------------------

registry.Test.postcommit_hook('method2call_just_after_the_commit', *a, **kw)

Aliased

Facility to create an SQL alias for the SQL query by the ORM:

select * from my_table the_table_alias.

This facility is given by SQLAlchemy, and anyblok adds this functionnality directly in the Model:

BlokAliased = registry.System.Blok.aliased()

Note

See this page: http://docs.sqlalchemy.org/en/latest/orm/query.html#sqlalchemy.orm.aliased to know the parameters of the aliased method

Warning

The first arg is already passed by AnyBlok

Get the registry

You can get a Model by the registry in any method of Models:

Model = self.registry.System.Model
assert Model.__registry_name__ == 'Model.System.Model'

Get the current environment

The current environment is saved in the main thread. You can add a value to the current Environment:

self.Env.set('My var', 'one value')

You can get a value from the current Environment:

myvalue = self.Env.get('My var', defaul="My default value")

Note

The environment is as a dict the value can be an instance of any type

Initialize some data by entry point

the entry point anyblok.init allow to define function, ìnit_function in this example:

setup(
    ...
    entry_points={
        'anyblok.init': [
            'my_function=path:init_function',
        ],
    },
)

In the path the init_function must be defined:

def init_function(unittest=False):
    ...

..warning:

Use unittest parameter to defined if the function must be call
or not

Make easily ReadOnly model

In somme case you want that your model is:

  • readonly: No modification, No deletion:

    @register(...)
    class MyModel(Mixin.ReadOnly):
      ...
    
  • forbid modification: No modification but can delete:

    @register(...)
    class MyModel(Mixin.ForbidUpdate):
      ...
    
  • forbid deletion: No deletion but can modify:

    @register(...)
    class MyModel(Mixin.ForbidDelete):
      ...
    

Plugin

Plugin is used for the low level, it is not use in the bloks, because the model can be overload by the declaration.

Define a new plugin

A plugin can be a class or a function:

class MyPlugin:
    pass

Add the plugin definition in the configuration:

@Configuration.add('plugins')
def add_plugins(self, group)
    group.add_argument('--my-option', dest='plugin_name',
                       type=AnyBlokPlugin,
                       default='path:MyPlugin')

Use the plugin:

plugin = Configuration.get('plugin_name')

anyblok.model.plugin

This a hook to add new feature in Model, this is already use for:

  • hybrid_method
  • table and mapper args
  • event
  • Sqlalchemy event
  • cache / classmethod_cache

Start by implement the plugin:

from anyblok.model.plugins import

class MyPlugin(ModelPluginBase):
    ...
class anyblok.model.plugins.ModelPluginBase(registry)

Bases: object

after_model_construction(base, namespace, transformation_properties)

Do some action with the constructed Model

Parameters:
  • base – the Model class
  • namespace – the namespace of the model
  • transformation_properties – the properties of the model
declare_field(name, field, namespace, properties, transformation_properties)

Declare a field in the model

Parameters:
  • name – field name
  • field – field instance
  • namespace – the namespace of the model
  • properties – the properties of the model
  • transformation_properties – the transformation properties
initialisation_tranformation_properties(properties, transformation_properties)

Initialise the transform properties

Parameters:
  • properties – the properties declared in the model
  • new_type_properties – param to add in a new base if need
insert_in_bases(new_base, namespace, properties, transformation_properties)

Insert in a base the overload

Parameters:
  • new_base – the base to be put on front of all bases
  • namespace – the namespace of the model
  • properties – the properties declared in the model
  • transformation_properties – the properties of the model
transform_base(namespace, base, transformation_properties, new_type_properties)

transform the base for the final Model

Parameters:
  • namespace – the namespace of the model
  • base – One of the base of the model

setup(
    ...
    entry_points={
        ...
        'anyblok.model.plugin': [
            'myplugin=path:MyPlugin',
        ],
        ...
    },
    ...
)
