add_resource(node: liara.nodes.ResourceNode) None

Add a resource to this site.

add_static(node: liara.nodes.StaticNode) None

Add a static node to this site.

create_collections(collections)

Create collections.

create_indices(indices)

Create indices.

This creates links between parents/children.

This is a separate step so it can be executed after merging nodes from multiple sources, for instance themes. It is safe to call this function multiple times to create new links; nodes which already have a parent are automatically skipped.

create_thumbnails(thumbnail_definition)

Create thumbnails.

Based on the thumbnail definition – which is assumed to be a dictionary containing the suffix and the desired size – this function iterates over all static nodes that contain images, and creates new thumbnail nodes as required.

class liara.site.StatusFilter

liara.template module

class liara.template.Jinja2Template(template)

Bases: liara.template.Template

render(**kwargs) str
class liara.template.Jinja2TemplateRepository(paths: Dict[str, str], path: pathlib.Path, cache: Optional[liara.cache.Cache] = None, *, options: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None)

Bases: liara.template.TemplateRepository

Jinja2 based template repository.

find_template(url, site: liara.site.Site) liara.template.Template
class liara.template.MakoTemplate(template)

Bases: liara.template.Template

render(**kwargs) str
class liara.template.MakoTemplateRepository(paths: Dict[str, str], path: pathlib.Path)

Bases: liara.template.TemplateRepository

find_template(url, site: liara.site.Site) liara.template.Template
class liara.template.Page(node)

Bases: object

A wrapper around DocumentNode and IndexNode for use inside templates.

Templates only get applied to those node types, and the Page class provides convenience accessors while hiding the underlying node from template code.

property content: str

Provides the content of this page.

property meta: Dict[str, Any]

Provides the metadata associated with this page.

Deprecated since version 2.1.2: Use metadata instead.

property metadata: Dict[str, Any]

Provides the metadata associated with this page.

New in version 2.1.2.

property references: query.Query

Provides the list of referenced nodes by this page.

This can be only used if the current page is an IndexNode, in all other cases this will fail. For index nodes, this will return the list of references as a Query instance.

property url: str

Provides the current path of this page.

class liara.template.SiteTemplateProxy(site: liara.site.Site)

Bases: object

A wrapper around Site for use inside templates.

property data: Dict[str, Any]

Get the union of all liara.nodes.DataNode instances in this site.

get_collection(collection: str) liara.query.Query

Get a collection in form of a liara.query.Query for further filtering/sorting.

get_next_in_collection(collection: str, page: liara.template.Page) Optional[liara.template.Page]

Given a collection and a page, return the next page in this collection or None if this is the last page.

get_page_by_url(url) Optional[liara.template.Page]

Return a page by URL. If the page cannot be found, return None.

get_previous_in_collection(collection: str, page: liara.template.Page) Optional[liara.template.Page]

Given a collection and a page, return the previous page in this collection or None if this is the first page.

property metadata: Dict[str, Any]

Provide access to the metadata of this site.

select(query) liara.query.Query

Run a query on this site.

class liara.template.Template

Bases: object

render(**kwargs)
class liara.template.TemplateRepository(paths: Dict[str, str])

Bases: object

find_template(url: pathlib.PurePosixPath) liara.template.Template
update_paths(paths: Dict[str, str])

liara.util module

class liara.util.FilesystemWalker(ignore_files: Optional[List[str]] = None)

Bases: object

walk(path: pathlib.Path)

Walk a directory recursively.

This is quite similar to os.walk, but with two major differences: * Files matching the ignore_files pattern are ignored. * The dirnames part of the tuple is omitted

liara.util.add_suffix(path: pathlib.Path, suffix)

Add a suffix to a path.

This differs from with_suffix by adding a suffix without changing the extension, i.e. adding en to foo.baz will produce foo.en.baz.

liara.util.create_slug(s: str) str

Convert a plain string into a slug.

A slug is suitable for use as a URL. For instance, passing A new world to this function will return a-new-world.

liara.util.flatten_dictionary(d, sep='.', parent_key=None, *, ignore_keys: Optional[set] = None)

Flatten a nested dictionary. This uses the separator to combine keys together, so a dictionary access like ['a']['b'] with a separator '.' turns into 'a.b'.

If ignore_keys is set, it must be a list of fully flattened key names at which the flattening should stop. For instance, if a dictionary {'a': {'b': {'c': 1}}} is provided, and ignore_keys is {'a.b'}, then a.b will not get flattened further, so a.b will contain a dictionary with {'c': 1}.

liara.util.local_now() datetime.datetime

Get a timezone aware timestamp.

This is equivalent to datetime.datetime.now(), except it returns a timestamp which has tzinfo set to the local timezone.

liara.util.pairwise(iterable)

For a list s, return pairs for consecutive entries. For example, a list s0, s1, etc. will produce (s0,s1), (s1,s2), ... and so on.

See: https://docs.python.org/3/library/itertools.html#recipes.

liara.util.readtime(wordcount: int, words_per_minute=300)

Given a number of words, estimate the time it would take to read them.

Returns

The time in minutes if it’s more than 1, otherwise 1.

liara.yaml module

liara.yaml.dump_yaml(data, stream: Optional[IO] = None)

Dump an object to Yaml.

This is a helper function which tries to use the fast CDumper implementation and falls back to the native Python version on failure.

liara.yaml.load_yaml(s: Union[bytes, IO, IO[bytes], str, IO[str]])

Load a Yaml document.

This is a helper function which tries to use the fast CLoader implementation and falls back to the native Python version on failure.
