assembl.models.path_utils module

Utilities for traversing the set of content related to an idea and vice-versa.

class assembl.models.path_utils.DiscussionGlobalData(db, discussion_id, user_id=None, discussion=None)[source]

Bases: object

Cache for global discussion data, lasts as long as the pyramid request object.


generator of ids of ancestor ideas


dictionary ->

TODO: Make it dict(id->id[]) for multiparenting

class assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathCombiner(discussion)[source]

Bases: assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathGlobalCollection, assembl.models.idea.IdeaVisitor

A traversal that will combine the PostPathLocalCollections of an idea with those of the idea’s ancestors. The result is that the as_clause of each PostPathLocalCollections in self.paths is globally complete

class assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathCounter(discussion, user_id=None, calc_subset=None)[source]

Bases: assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathCombiner

Adds the ability to do post counts to PostPathCombiner.

class assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathData(post_path, positive)[source]

Bases: object

Data about a single post_path.

class assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathGlobalCollection(discussion=None)[source]

Bases: object

Collects PostPathLocalCollections for each idea in the discussion Maintains paths, a dictionary of PostPathLocalCollections by idea_id

class assembl.models.path_utils.PostPathLocalCollection[source]

Bases: object

Data about all PostPaths local to an Idea.

as_clause_base(db, discussion_id, include_breakpoints=False, include_deleted=False)[source]

Express collection as a SQLAlchemy query clause.

  • include_breakpoints (bool) – Include posts where a threadbreak happens

  • include_deleted – Include posts in deleted_publication_states. True means only deleted posts, None means all posts, False means only live posts or deleted posts with live descendants.


Combine the paths from two collections (different ideas).


Is this post (given as path) included in this collection?


Reduce overlapping paths. For example, <1,+>,<1,2,+> becomes <1,+> But <1,+>,<1,2,->,<1,2,3,+> remains as-is And <1,+>,<1,2,->,<1,3,4,+> becomes <1,+>,<1,2,->
