For #1275 I did my first steps with Python Social Auth.

The configuration section was easy. I created a new plugin lino.modlib.social_auth. But how to connect this to Lino at the web interface level?

I got lost in the Beginner’s Guide. It seems that I ignore something which seems so evident to the author that they don’t even talk about it.

Okay let’s try using the Google backend. Either “OAuth2” or “Google+ Sign-In”. Let’s start with OAuth2.

Using OAuth 2.0 to Access Google APIs

I went to the Google API Console.

It says “You have 12 projects remaining in your quota.”

I created my first project, named “Lino team”. Now it says:

No APIs or services are enabled
Browse the Library to find and use hundreds of available APIs and services

I added Google Calendar and Google People (what’s the difference between People and Contacts?)

It says “To use this API, you may need credentials. Click ‘Create credentials’ to get started.”

I created a “credential” for web clients. This gave me a “client id” string of type:

1234567890-a1b2c3d4e5.apps.googleusercontent.com

I also downloaded a client_id.json file with this content:

{"web":{
  "client_id":"1234567890-a1b2c3d4e5.apps.googleusercontent.com",
  "project_id":"lino-team",
  "auth_uri":"https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth",
  "token_uri":"https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token",
  "auth_provider_x509_cert_url":"https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/certs",
  "client_secret":"SH6da...",
  "redirect_uris":["https://jane.saffre-rumma.net/login"],
  "javascript_origins":["https://jane.saffre-rumma.net"]
}}

I added this info to the local settings.py on Jane

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS.insert(
  0, 'social_core.backends.google.GoogleOAuth2')
SOCIAL_AUTH_GOOGLE_OAUTH2_KEY = \
  '1234567890-a1b2c3d4e5.apps.googleusercontent.com'
SOCIAL_AUTH_GOOGLE_OAUTH2_SECRET = 'SH6da...'

Now I must obtain an access token from the Google Authorization Server.

Side effect: Until now the value of AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS was a tuple, which made the above code fail. Now it is a list.

UpdateAllGuests

For #2115 they want a button per course which updates the guest list of all planned calendar entries. (Teilnehmerliste aktualisieren für alle Termine. Es ​wäre praktisch, wenn das „Liste füllen“ bei den einzelnen Terminen automatisch ginge)
