Example App =========== An example is worth a thousand words. Here is an example `Pyramid `_ application demonstrating how one might use :mod:`deform` to render a form. For it to work, you will need to have ``deform``, ``pyramid``, and ``pyramid_chameleon`` installed in your Python environment. .. note:: :mod:`deform` is not dependent on :mod:`pyramid` at all. We use Pyramid in the examples below only to facilitate demonstration of an actual end-to-end working application that uses Deform. Here is the Python code: .. code-block:: python :linenos: import os from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server from pyramid.config import Configurator from colander import ( Boolean, Integer, Length, MappingSchema, OneOf, SchemaNode, SequenceSchema, String ) from deform import ( Form, ValidationFailure, widget ) here = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__)) colors = (('red', 'Red'), ('green', 'Green'), ('blue', 'Blue')) class DateSchema(MappingSchema): month = SchemaNode(Integer()) year = SchemaNode(Integer()) day = SchemaNode(Integer()) class DatesSchema(SequenceSchema): date = DateSchema() class MySchema(MappingSchema): name = SchemaNode(String(), description = 'The name of this thing') title = SchemaNode(String(), widget = widget.TextInputWidget(size=40), validator = Length(max=20), description = 'A very short title') password = SchemaNode(String(), widget = widget.CheckedPasswordWidget(), validator = Length(min=5)) is_cool = SchemaNode(Boolean(), default = True) dates = DatesSchema() color = SchemaNode(String(), widget = widget.RadioChoiceWidget(values=colors), validator = OneOf(('red', 'blue'))) def form_view(request): schema = MySchema() myform = Form(schema, buttons=('submit',)) template_values = {} template_values.update(myform.get_widget_resources()) if 'submit' in request.POST: controls = request.POST.items() try: myform.validate(controls) except ValidationFailure as e: template_values['form'] = e.render() else: template_values['form'] = 'OK' return template_values template_values['form'] = myform.render() return template_values if __name__ == '__main__': settings = dict(reload_templates=True) config = Configurator(settings=settings) config.include('pyramid_chameleon') config.add_view(form_view, renderer=os.path.join(here, 'form.pt')) config.add_static_view('static', 'deform:static') app = config.make_wsgi_app() server = make_server('', 8080, app) server.serve_forever() Here is the Chameleon ZPT template named ``form.pt``, placed in the same directory: .. code-block:: html :linenos: Deform Sample Form App
