Interfaces

Container-related interfaces

exception zope.container.interfaces.ContainerError[source]

Bases: exceptions.Exception

An error of a container with one of its components.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IBTreeContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IContainer

Container that supports BTree semantics for some methods.

keys(key=None)

Return an iterator over the keys in the container.

If None is passed as key, this method behaves as if no argument were passed; exactly as required for IContainer.keys().

If key is in the container, the first key provided by the iterator will be that key. Otherwise, the first key will be the one that would come next if key were in the container.

items(key=None)

Return an iterator over the key-value pairs in the container.

If None is passed as key, this method behaves as if no argument were passed; exactly as required for IContainer.items().

If key is in the container, the first item provided by the iterator will correspond to that key. Otherwise, the first item will be for the key that would come next if key were in the container.

values(key=None)

Return an iterator over the values in the container.

If None is passed as key, this method behaves as if no argument were passed; exactly as required for IContainer.values().

If key is in the container, the first value provided by the iterator will correspond to that key. Otherwise, the first value will be for the key that would come next if key were in the container.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IReadContainer, zope.container.interfaces.IWriteContainer

Readable and writable content container.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IContainerModifiedEvent[source]

Extends: zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces.IObjectModifiedEvent

The container has been modified.

This event is specific to “containerness” modifications, which means addition, removal or reordering of sub-objects.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IContainerNamesContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IContainer

Containers that always choose names for their items.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IContentContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IContainer

A container that is to be used as a content type.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IFind[source]

Find support for containers.

find(id_filters=None, object_filters=None)

Find object that matches all filters in all sub-objects.

This container itself is not included.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IItemContainer[source]

Extends: zope.interface.common.mapping.IItemMapping

Minimal readable container.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IItemWriteContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IWriteContainer, zope.container.interfaces.IItemContainer

A write container that also supports minimal reads.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IOrdered[source]

Objects whose contents are maintained in order.

updateOrder(order)

Revise the order of keys, replacing the current ordering.

order is a list or a tuple containing the set of existing keys in the new order. order must contain len(keys()) items and cannot contain duplicate keys.

Raises TypeError if order is not a tuple or a list.

Raises ValueError if order contains an invalid set of keys.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IOrderedContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IOrdered, zope.container.interfaces.IContainer

Containers whose contents are maintained in order.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IReadContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.ISimpleReadContainer, zope.interface.common.mapping.IEnumerableMapping

Readable containers that can be enumerated.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IReservedNames[source]

A sequence of names that are reserved for that container

reservedNames

Reserved Names

Names that are not allowed for addable content

interface zope.container.interfaces.ISimpleReadContainer[source]

Extends: zope.container.interfaces.IItemContainer, zope.interface.common.mapping.IReadMapping

Readable content containers.

interface zope.container.interfaces.IWriteContainer[source]

An interface for the write aspects of a container.

__setitem__(name, object)

Add the given object to the container under the given name.

Raises a TypeError if the key is not a unicode or ascii string.

Raises a ValueError if the key is empty, or if the key contains a character which is not allowed in an object name.

Raises a KeyError if the key violates a uniqueness constraint.

The container might choose to add a different object than the one passed to this method.

If the object doesn’t implement IContained, then one of two things must be done:

  1. If the object implements ILocation, then the IContained interface must be declared for the object.
  2. Otherwise, a ContainedProxy is created for the object and stored.

The object’s __parent__ and __name__ attributes are set to the container and the given name.

If the old parent was None, then an IObjectAddedEvent is generated, otherwise, an IObjectMovedEvent is generated. An IContainerModifiedEvent is generated for the container.

If the object replaces another object, then the old object is deleted before the new object is added, unless the container vetos the replacement by raising an exception.

If the object’s __parent__ and __name__ were already set to the container and the name, then no events are generated and no hooks. This allows advanced clients to take over event generation.

__delitem__(name)

Delete the named object from the container.

Raises a KeyError if the object is not found.

If the deleted object’s __parent__ and __name__ match the container and given name, then an IObjectRemovedEvent is generated and the attributes are set to None. If the object can be adapted to IObjectMovedEvent, then the adapter’s moveNotify method is called with the event.

Unless the object’s __parent__ and __name__ attributes were initially None, generate an IContainerModifiedEvent for the container.

If the object’s __parent__ and __name__ were already set to None, then no events are generated. This allows advanced clients to take over event generation.

Implementations

Bases and Events

Classes to support implementing IContained

class zope.container.contained.Contained[source]

Bases: object

Stupid mix-in that defines __parent__ and __name__ attributes

class zope.container.contained.ContainedProxyClassProvides(cls, metacls, *interfaces)[source]

Bases: zope.interface.declarations.ClassProvides

Delegates __provides__ to the instance.

>>> class D1(ContainedProxy):
...    pass
>>> class Base(object):
...    pass
>>> base = Base()
>>> d = D1(base)
>>> d.__provides__ = 42
>>> base.__provides__
42
>>> del d.__provides__
>>> hasattr(base, '__provides__')
False
class zope.container.contained.ContainerModifiedEvent(object, *descriptions)[source]

Bases: zope.lifecycleevent.ObjectModifiedEvent

The container has been modified.

Init with a list of modification descriptions.

class zope.container.contained.ContainerSublocations(container)[source]

Bases: object

Get the sublocations for a container

Obviously, this is the container values:

>>> class MyContainer(object):
...     def __init__(self, **data):
...         self.data = data
...     def __iter__(self):
...         return iter(self.data)
...     def __getitem__(self, key):
...         return self.data[key]
>>> container = MyContainer(x=1, y=2, z=42)
>>> adapter = ContainerSublocations(container)
>>> sublocations = list(adapter.sublocations())
>>> sublocations.sort()
>>> sublocations
[1, 2, 42]
class zope.container.contained.DecoratedSecurityCheckerDescriptor[source]

Bases: object

Descriptor for a Decorator that provides a decorated security checker.

>>> class WithChecker(object):
...     __Security_checker__ = object()
>>> class D1(ContainedProxy):
...    pass
>>> d = D1(object())
>>> d.__Security_checker__ 
<...Checker...>

An existing checker is added to this one:

>>> d = D1(WithChecker())
>>> d.__Security_checker__ 
<...CombinedChecker...>
class zope.container.contained.DecoratorSpecificationDescriptor[source]

Bases: _interface_coptimizations.ObjectSpecificationDescriptor

Support for interface declarations on decorators

>>> from zope.interface import *
>>> class I1(Interface):
...     pass
>>> class I2(Interface):
...     pass
>>> class I3(Interface):
...     pass
>>> class I4(Interface):
...     pass
>>> @implementer(I1)
... class D1(ContainedProxy):
...   pass
>>> @implementer(I2)
... class D2(ContainedProxy):
...   pass
>>> @implementer(I3)
... class X:
...   pass
>>> x = X()
>>> directlyProvides(x, I4)

Interfaces of X are ordered with the directly-provided interfaces first

>>> [interface.getName() for interface in list(providedBy(x))]
['I4', 'I3']

When we decorate objects, what order should the interfaces come in? One could argue that decorators are less specific, so they should come last.

>>> [interface.getName() for interface in list(providedBy(D1(x)))]
['I4', 'I3', 'I1', 'IContained', 'IPersistent']
>>> [interface.getName() for interface in list(providedBy(D2(D1(x))))]
['I4', 'I3', 'I1', 'IContained', 'IPersistent', 'I2']
zope.container.contained.contained(object, container, name=None)[source]

Establish the containment of the object in the container

Just return the contained object without an event. This is a convenience “macro” for:

containedEvent(object, container, name)[0]

This function is only used for tests.

zope.container.contained.containedEvent(object, container, name=None)[source]

Establish the containment of the object in the container

The object and necessary event are returned. The object may be a ContainedProxy around the original object. The event is an added event, a moved event, or None.

If the object implements IContained, simply set its __parent__ and __name__ attributes:

>>> container = {}
>>> item = Contained()
>>> x, event = containedEvent(item, container, u'foo')
>>> x is item
True
>>> item.__parent__ is container
True
>>> item.__name__
u'foo'

We have an added event:

>>> event.__class__.__name__
'ObjectAddedEvent'
>>> event.object is item
True
>>> event.newParent is container
True
>>> event.newName
u'foo'
>>> event.oldParent
>>> event.oldName

Now if we call contained again:

>>> x2, event = containedEvent(item, container, u'foo')
>>> x2 is item
True
>>> item.__parent__ is container
True
>>> item.__name__
u'foo'

We don’t get a new added event:

>>> event

If the object already had a parent but the parent or name was different, we get a moved event:

>>> x, event = containedEvent(item, container, u'foo2')
>>> event.__class__.__name__
'ObjectMovedEvent'
>>> event.object is item
True
>>> event.newParent is container
True
>>> event.newName
u'foo2'
>>> event.oldParent is container
True
>>> event.oldName
u'foo'

If the object implements ILocation, but not IContained, set its __parent__ and __name__ attributes and declare that it implements IContained:

>>> from zope.location import Location
>>> item = Location()
>>> IContained.providedBy(item)
False
>>> x, event = containedEvent(item, container, 'foo')
>>> x is item
True
>>> item.__parent__ is container
True
>>> item.__name__
'foo'
>>> IContained.providedBy(item)
True

If the object doesn’t even implement ILocation, put a ContainedProxy around it:

>>> item = []
>>> x, event = containedEvent(item, container, 'foo')
>>> x is item
False
>>> x.__parent__ is container
True
>>> x.__name__
'foo'

Make sure we don’t lose existing directly provided interfaces.

>>> from zope.interface import Interface, directlyProvides
>>> class IOther(Interface):
...     pass
>>> from zope.location import Location
>>> item = Location()
>>> directlyProvides(item, IOther)
>>> IOther.providedBy(item)
True
>>> x, event = containedEvent(item, container, 'foo')
>>> IOther.providedBy(item)
True
zope.container.contained.dispatchToSublocations(object, event)[source]

Dispatch an event to sublocations of a given object

When a move event happens for an object, it’s important to notify subobjects as well.

We do this based on locations.

Suppose, for example, that we define some location objects.

>>> @zope.interface.implementer(ILocation)
... class L(object):
...     def __init__(self, name):
...         self.__name__ = name
...         self.__parent__ = None
...     def __repr__(self):
...         return '%s(%s)' % (
...                 self.__class__.__name__, str(self.__name__))
>>> @zope.interface.implementer(ISublocations)
... class C(L):
...     def __init__(self, name, *subs):
...         L.__init__(self, name)
...         self.subs = subs
...         for sub in subs:
...             sub.__parent__ = self
...     def sublocations(self):
...         return self.subs
>>> c = C(1,
...       C(11,
...         L(111),
...         L(112),
...         ),
...       C(12,
...         L(121),
...         L(122),
...         L(123),
...         L(124),
...         ),
...       L(13),
...       )

Now, if we call the dispatcher, it should call event handlers for all of the objects.

Lets create an event handler that records the objects it sees:

>>> seen = []
>>> def handler(ob, event):
...     seen.append((ob, event.object))

Note that we record the the object the handler is called on as well as the event object:

Now we’ll register it:

>>> from zope import component
>>> from zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces import IObjectMovedEvent
>>> component.provideHandler(handler, [None, IObjectMovedEvent])

We also register our dispatcher:

>>> component.provideHandler(dispatchToSublocations,
...   [None, IObjectMovedEvent])

We can then call the dispatcher for the root object:

>>> event = ObjectRemovedEvent(c)
>>> dispatchToSublocations(c, event)

Now, we should have seen all of the subobjects:

>>> seenreprs = sorted(map(repr, seen))
>>> seenreprs
['(C(11), C(1))', '(C(12), C(1))', '(L(111), C(1))', '(L(112), C(1))', '(L(121), C(1))', '(L(122), C(1))', '(L(123), C(1))', '(L(124), C(1))', '(L(13), C(1))']

We see that we get entries for each of the subobjects and that,for each entry, the event object is top object.

This suggests that location event handlers need to be aware that the objects they are called on and the event objects could be different.

zope.container.contained.notifyContainerModified(object, *descriptions)[source]

Notify that the container was modified.

zope.container.contained.setitem(container, setitemf, name, object)[source]

Helper function to set an item and generate needed events

This helper is needed, in part, because the events need to get published after the object has been added to the container.

If the item implements IContained, simply set its __parent__ and __name__ attributes:

>>> class IItem(zope.interface.Interface):
...     pass
>>> @zope.interface.implementer(IItem)
... class Item(Contained):
...     def setAdded(self, event):
...         self.added = event
...     def setMoved(self, event):
...         self.moved = event
>>> from zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces import IObjectAddedEvent
>>> from zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces import IObjectMovedEvent
>>> from zope import component
>>> component.provideHandler(lambda obj, event: obj.setAdded(event),
...   [IItem, IObjectAddedEvent])
>>> component.provideHandler(lambda obj, event: obj.setMoved(event),
...   [IItem, IObjectMovedEvent])
>>> item = Item()
>>> container = {}
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'c', item)
>>> container[u'c'] is item
1
>>> item.__parent__ is container
1
>>> item.__name__
u'c'

If we run this using the testing framework, we’ll use getEvents to track the events generated:

>>> from zope.component.eventtesting import getEvents
>>> from zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces import IObjectModifiedEvent

We have an added event:

>>> len(getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent))
1
>>> event = getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent)[-1]
>>> event.object is item
1
>>> event.newParent is container
1
>>> event.newName
u'c'
>>> event.oldParent
>>> event.oldName

As well as a modification event for the container:

>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
1
>>> getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent)[-1].object is container
1

The item’s hooks have been called:

>>> item.added is event
1
>>> item.moved is event
1

We can suppress events and hooks by setting the __parent__ and __name__ first:

>>> item = Item()
>>> item.__parent__, item.__name__ = container, 'c2'
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'c2', item)
>>> len(container)
2
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent))
1
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
1
>>> getattr(item, 'added', None)
>>> getattr(item, 'moved', None)

If the item had a parent or name (as in a move or rename), we generate a move event, rather than an add event:

>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'c3', item)
>>> len(container)
3
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent))
1
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
2
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectMovedEvent))
2

(Note that we have 2 move events because add are move events.)

We also get the move hook called, but not the add hook:

>>> event = getEvents(IObjectMovedEvent)[-1]
>>> getattr(item, 'added', None)
>>> item.moved is event
1

If we try to replace an item without deleting it first, we’ll get an error:

>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'c', [])
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
KeyError: u'c'
>>> del container[u'c']
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'c', [])
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent))
2
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
3

If the object implements ILocation, but not IContained, set it’s __parent__ and __name__ attributes and declare that it implements IContained:

>>> from zope.location import Location
>>> item = Location()
>>> IContained.providedBy(item)
0
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'l', item)
>>> container[u'l'] is item
1
>>> item.__parent__ is container
1
>>> item.__name__
u'l'
>>> IContained.providedBy(item)
1

We get new added and modification events:

>>> len(getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent))
3
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
4

If the object doesn’t even implement ILocation, put a ContainedProxy around it:

>>> item = []
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'i', item)
>>> container[u'i']
[]
>>> container[u'i'] is item
0
>>> item = container[u'i']
>>> item.__parent__ is container
1
>>> item.__name__
u'i'
>>> IContained.providedBy(item)
1
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectAddedEvent))
4
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
5

We’ll get type errors if we give keys that aren’t unicode or ascii keys:

>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, 42, item)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
TypeError: name not unicode or ascii string
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, None, item)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
TypeError: name not unicode or ascii string
>>> c = bytes([200]) if PY3 else chr(200)
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, b'hello ' + c, item)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
TypeError: name not unicode or ascii string

and we’ll get a value error of we give an empty string or unicode:

>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, '', item)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: empty names are not allowed
>>> setitem(container, container.__setitem__, u'', item)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
ValueError: empty names are not allowed
zope.container.contained.uncontained(object, container, name=None)[source]

Clear the containment relationship between the object and the container.

If we run this using the testing framework, we’ll use getEvents to track the events generated:

>>> from zope.component.eventtesting import getEvents
>>> from zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces import IObjectModifiedEvent
>>> from zope.lifecycleevent.interfaces import IObjectRemovedEvent

We’ll start by creating a container with an item:

>>> class Item(Contained):
...     pass
>>> item = Item()
>>> container = {u'foo': item}
>>> x, event = containedEvent(item, container, u'foo')
>>> item.__parent__ is container
1
>>> item.__name__
u'foo'

Now we’ll remove the item. It’s parent and name are cleared:

>>> uncontained(item, container, u'foo')
>>> item.__parent__
>>> item.__name__

We now have a new removed event:

>>> len(getEvents(IObjectRemovedEvent))
1
>>> event = getEvents(IObjectRemovedEvent)[-1]
>>> event.object is item
1
>>> event.oldParent is container
1
>>> event.oldName
u'foo'
>>> event.newParent
>>> event.newName

As well as a modification event for the container:

>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
1
>>> getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent)[-1].object is container
1

Now if we call uncontained again:

>>> uncontained(item, container, u'foo')

We won’t get any new events, because __parent__ and __name__ are None:

>>> len(getEvents(IObjectRemovedEvent))
1
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
1

But, if either the name or parent are not None and they are not the container and the old name, we’ll get a modified event but not a removed event.

>>> item.__parent__, item.__name__ = container, None
>>> uncontained(item, container, u'foo')
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectRemovedEvent))
1
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
2
>>> item.__parent__, item.__name__ = None, u'bar'
>>> uncontained(item, container, u'foo')
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectRemovedEvent))
1
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectModifiedEvent))
3

If one tries to delete a Broken object, we allow them to do just that.

>>> class Broken(object):
...     __Broken_state__ = {}
>>> broken = Broken()
>>> broken.__Broken_state__['__name__'] = u'bar'
>>> broken.__Broken_state__['__parent__'] = container
>>> container[u'bar'] = broken
>>> uncontained(broken, container, u'bar')
>>> len(getEvents(IObjectRemovedEvent))
2

Directory

File-system representation adapters for containers

This module includes two adapters (adapter factories, really) for providing a file-system representation for containers:

noop
Factory that “adapts” IContainer to IWriteDirectory. This is a lie, since it just returns the original object.
Cloner
An IDirectoryFactory adapter that just clones the original object.
class zope.container.directory.Cloner(context)[source]

Bases: object

IContainer to zope.filerepresentation.interfaces.IDirectoryFactory adapter that clones.

This adapter provides a factory that creates a new empty container of the same class as it’s context.

class zope.container.directory.ReadDirectory(context)[source]

Bases: object

Adapter to provide a file-system rendition of folders.

zope.container.directory.noop(container)[source]

Adapt an IContainer to an IWriteDirectory by just returning it

This “works” because IContainer and IWriteDirectory have the same methods, however, the output doesn’t actually implement IWriteDirectory.

Folders

Sample

Sample container implementation.

This is primarily for testing purposes.

It might be useful as a mix-in for some classes, but many classes will need a very different implementation.

class zope.container.sample.SampleContainer[source]

Bases: zope.container.contained.Contained

Sample container implementation suitable for testing.

It is not suitable, directly as a base class unless the subclass overrides _newContainerData to return a persistent mapping object.

get(key, default=None)[source]

Size

Adapters that give the size of an object.

class zope.container.size.ContainerSized(container)[source]

Bases: object

Implements zope.size.interfaces.ISize for zope.container.interfaces.IReadContainer

Traversal

Traversal components for containers

class zope.container.traversal.ContainerTraversable(container)[source]

Bases: object

Traverses containers via getattr and get.

class zope.container.traversal.ContainerTraverser(container, request)[source]

Bases: object

A traverser that knows how to look up objects by name in a container.
