AXANT ToscaWidget2 Widgets collection

AXF is a collection of ToscaWidgets2 widgets with resources loading based on the AXEL Loader to perform resources loading so that it is possible to replace resources and load widgets from ajax requests.

Installing

axf can be installed from pypi:

easy_install axf

or:

pip install axf

should just work for most of the users

Using Widgets

To start using AXF widgets you must add axel to your pages so that widgets can load their resources:

<script src="https://raw.github.com/amol-/axel/master/src/axel.js"></script>

The AXEL loader is used instead of standard ToscaWidgets2 resources injection to make possible to load the forms where they are used through jQuery.load, as resources loading and injection is performed by AXEL not response manipulation to append the resources to head or body is required.

If you want to load and submit forms through ajax requests in TurboGears consider using tgext.ajaxforms

Replacing resources required by the widgets can be performed using the AXEL loader. Most widgets will depend on jQuery and will load it from the jquery cdn, if your website uses jQuery and you want to use a different version of it you can easily replace it using:

axel.register('jquery', 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js');

Just place your register before displaying the widget and your version of the library will be used.

Each widget will list its resources with the name used to register them in AXEL, so that you can replace them.

AjaxAutoCompleteField

axf.widgets.ajax_autocomplete_field.AjaxAutocompleteField is field that provides autocompletion based on select2 backed by a json based api. Each entry has to provide a text which is displayed to the user and an id which is submitted with the form. text and id can coincide for plain text autocompletion.

The field requires two parameters datasource and inverse_datasource are respectively the api to retrieve list of data available for the text written by the user and to retrieve the text corresponding to an already selected entry (for example in case of validation error or editing existing data)

EXAMPLE:

city    = AjaxAutocompleteField(label=l_('City'), validator=validators.Validator(required=True),
                                placeholder=l_('Select City'),
                                datasource=lurl('/ajax/get_cities'),
                                inverse_datasource=lurl('/ajax/city_from_id'))

  • select2-style - select2 stylesheet

datasource api

The API is required to accept a term to search as input, to return a list of {text: "value", id: "id"} entries and a marker to indicate if more data is available:

@expose('json')
def get_cities(self, term='', **kw):
    return dict(more=False, results=[dict(text=c[1], id=c[0]) for c in cities_dict.items()])

datasource_inverse api

The API is required to accept an id as argument in the form /apiname/ID and return the text and id of the corresponding entry:

@expose('json')
def city_from_id(self, city_id=None, **kw):
    return dict(text=cities_dict.get(city_id), id=city_id)

AjaxSingleSelectField

axf.widgets.ajax_single_select.AjaxSingleSelectField is a field that loads its data from a datasource api whenever another field changes. This can be used to implement cascading single select fields, where options available depend on another selection.

The field requires two parameters datasource which is the api to call to request for the data available on the value of the other field and onevent which is a tuple with a selector and a javascript event (currently ignored) which specifies which field should trigger data update. Whenever the field specified by the selector changes the single select field is reloaded asking to the datasource for the data.

EXAMPLE:

category = forms.SingleSelectField(label=l_('Category'), options=Deferred(get_categories),
                                   validator=validators.Validator(required=True))
subcategory = AjaxSingleSelectField(label=l_('Sub Category'), onevent=('#category', 'change'), prompt_text=None,
                                    validator=validators.Validator(required=True),
                                    datasource=lurl('/ajax/get_subcategories'))

resources

  • jquery - jquery library

datasource api

The API is required to accept the current value of the field linked by onevent option and return a list of options for the AjaxSingleSelectField in the form {name: "name", value: "value"}:

@expose('json')
def get_subcategories(self, selected=None, **kw):
    if not selected:
        return dict(options=[])
    return dict(options=[dict(name=c['name'], value=c['id']) for c in subcategories.get(selected, [])])

AjaxCascadingField

axf.widgets.ajax_cascading_field.AjaxCascadingField is a field that loads its data from a datasource api whenever another field changes. This can be used to implement input fields, where value depend on another selection.

The field requires three parameters datasource which is the api to call to request for the data available on the value of the other field, onevent which is a tuple with a selector and a javascript event (currently ignored) which specifies which field should trigger data update and type which is the type of the input. Whenever the field specified by the selector changes the input field is reloaded asking to the datasourcefor the data.

EXAMPLE:

category = forms.SingleSelectField(label=l_('Category'), options=Deferred(get_categories),
                                   validator=validators.Validator(required=True))
category_description = AjaxCascadingField(label=l_('Category Description'),
                                          onevent=('#category', 'change'),
                                          prompt_text=None,
                                          validator=validators.Validator(required=True),
                                          datasource=lurl('/ajax/get_category_description'),
                                          type='textarea')

resources

  • jquery - jquery library

datasource api

The API is required to accept the current value of the field linked by onevent option and return the value for the AjaxCascadingField in the form {value: "value"}:

@expose('json')
def get_category_description(self, selected=None, **kw):
    if not selected:
        return dict(value='')
    return dict(value=category[selected].get('description'))

WysiHtml5TextArea

axf.widgets.wysihtml5_text_area.WysiHtml5TextArea is a Text Area with wysiwyg editor

WysiHtml5TextArea requires the same parameter of tw2 TextArea, when you render the result html you must declare CSS rules for alignment:

.wysiwyg-text-align-right {
  text-align: right;
}

.wysiwyg-text-align-center {
  text-align: center;
}

.wysiwyg-text-align-left {
  text-align: left;
}
