circuits.web.exceptions module


This module implements a set of standard HTTP Errors as Python Exceptions.

Note: This code is mostly borrowed from werkzeug and adapted for circuits.web

exception circuits.web.exceptions.Redirect(urls, status=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

code = 303
exception circuits.web.exceptions.RequestTimeout(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

408 Request Timeout

Raise to signalize a timeout.

code = 408
description = "<p>The server closed the network connection because the browser didn't finish the request within the specified time.</p>"
exception circuits.web.exceptions.RequestEntityTooLarge(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

413 Request Entity Too Large

The status code one should return if the data submitted exceeded a given limit.

code = 413
description = '<p>The data value transmitted exceeds the capacity limit.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.ServiceUnavailable(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

503 Service Unavailable

Status code you should return if a service is temporarily unavailable.

code = 503
description = '<p>The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.UnsupportedMediaType(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

415 Unsupported Media Type

The status code returned if the server is unable to handle the media type the client transmitted.

code = 415
description = '<p>The server does not support the media type transmitted in the request.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.RequestURITooLarge(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

414 Request URI Too Large

Like 413 but for too long URLs.

code = 414
description = '<p>The length of the requested URL exceeds the capacity limit for this server. The request cannot be processed.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.BadGateway(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

502 Bad Gateway

If you do proxying in your application you should return this status code if you received an invalid response from the upstream server it accessed in attempting to fulfill the request.

code = 502
description = '<p>The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: exceptions.Exception

Baseclass for all HTTP exceptions. This exception can be called by WSGI applications to render a default error page or you can catch the subclasses of it independently and render nicer error messages.

code = None
description = None

The status name.

traceback = True
exception circuits.web.exceptions.UnicodeError(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

raised by the request functions if they were unable to decode the incoming data properly.

exception circuits.web.exceptions.NotAcceptable(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

406 Not Acceptable

Raise if the server can’t return any content conforming to the Accept headers of the client.

code = 406
description = '<p>The resource identified by the request is only capable of generating response entities which have content characteristics not acceptable according to the accept headers sent in the request.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.BadRequest(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

400 Bad Request

Raise if the browser sends something to the application the application or server cannot handle.

code = 400
description = '<p>The browser (or proxy) sent a request that this server could not understand.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.RangeUnsatisfiable(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

416 Range Unsatisfiable

The status code returned if the server is unable to satisfy the request range

code = 416
description = '<p>The server cannot satisfy the request range(s).</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.Unauthorized(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

401 Unauthorized

Raise if the user is not authorized. Also used if you want to use HTTP basic auth.

code = 401
description = "<p>The server could not verify that you are authorized to access the URL requested. You either supplied the wrong credentials (e.g. a bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.</p><p>In case you are allowed to request the document, please check your user-id and password and try again.</p>"
exception circuits.web.exceptions.Gone(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

410 Gone

Raise if a resource existed previously and went away without new location.

code = 410
description = '<p>The requested URL is no longer available on this server and there is no forwarding address.</p><p>If you followed a link from a foreign page, please contact the author of this page.'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.PreconditionFailed(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

412 Precondition Failed

Status code used in combination with If-Match, If-None-Match, or If-Unmodified-Since.

code = 412
description = '<p>The precondition on the request for the URL failed positive evaluation.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.InternalServerError(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

500 Internal Server Error

Raise if an internal server error occurred. This is a good fallback if an unknown error occurred in the dispatcher.

code = 500
description = '<p>The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.MethodNotAllowed(method, description=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

405 Method Not Allowed

Raise if the server used a method the resource does not handle. For example POST if the resource is view only. Especially useful for REST.

The first argument for this exception should be a list of allowed methods. Strictly speaking the response would be invalid if you don’t provide valid methods in the header which you can do with that list.

code = 405
exception circuits.web.exceptions.NotFound(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

404 Not Found

Raise if a resource does not exist and never existed.

code = 404
description = '<p>The requested URL was not found on the server.</p><p>If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.LengthRequired(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

411 Length Required

Raise if the browser submitted data but no Content-Length header which is required for the kind of processing the server does.

code = 411
description = '<p>A request with this method requires a valid <code>Content-Length</code> header.</p>'
exception circuits.web.exceptions.Forbidden(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

403 Forbidden

Raise if the user doesn’t have the permission for the requested resource but was authenticated.

code = 403
description = "<p>You don't have the permission to access the requested resource. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.</p>"
exception circuits.web.exceptions.NotImplemented(description=None, traceback=None)

Bases: circuits.web.exceptions.HTTPException

501 Not Implemented

Raise if the application does not support the action requested by the browser.

code = 501
description = '<p>The server does not support the action requested by the browser.</p>'
