This contains the class which defines the generic interface for metadata. Basically, it provides an interface for how data is extracted from the provider for widget generation.

Classes

class sprox.metadata.Metadata(provider, entity=None)

Bases: dict

Base Metadata class

Metadatas are dictionary-like. They map attributes of the entity they wrap, so that attributes of the entity can be examined without being explicitly set. Elements of a metadata can be set if they are not already part of the wrapped entity. This allows for customization of the metadata without modification to the wrapped metadata.

clear() → None. Remove all items from D.
copy() → a shallow copy of D
static fromkeys(S[, v]) → New dict with keys from S and values equal to v.

v defaults to None.

get(k[, d]) → D[k] if k in D, else d. d defaults to None.
has_key(k) → True if D has a key k, else False
items() → list of D's (key, value) pairs, as 2-tuples
iteritems() → an iterator over the (key, value) items of D
iterkeys() → an iterator over the keys of D
itervalues() → an iterator over the values of D
keys()
pop(k[, d]) → v, remove specified key and return the corresponding value.

If key is not found, d is returned if given, otherwise KeyError is raised

popitem() → (k, v), remove and return some (key, value) pair as a

2-tuple; but raise KeyError if D is empty.

setdefault(k[, d]) → D.get(k,d), also set D[k]=d if k not in D
update(E, **F) → None. Update D from dict/iterable E and F.

If E has a .keys() method, does: for k in E: D[k] = E[k] If E lacks .keys() method, does: for (k, v) in E: D[k] = v In either case, this is followed by: for k in F: D[k] = F[k]

values() → list of D's values
viewitems() → a set-like object providing a view on D's items
viewkeys() → a set-like object providing a view on D's keys
viewvalues() → an object providing a view on D's values
class sprox.metadata.EntitiesMetadata(provider, entity=None)

values() → list of D's values
viewitems() → a set-like object providing a view on D's items
viewkeys() → a set-like object providing a view on D's keys
viewvalues() → an object providing a view on D's values
