Python :: Flex Application - Custom User Authentication?

Jul 27, 2010

I'm using Google Engine App with Python. I want to add custom user authentication. How is it done, with the best practices? I want custom authentication because the app is built in Flex and I don't want to redirect to an HTML page.

The user value object is like this:
class User(db.Model):
email = db.EmailProperty(required = True, indexed = True)
masked_password = db.StringProperty(required = True)
# maybe more things here

I would like to mask the password, is there some built in function in GAE? Then, how I will remember the current user? Through sessions and cookies? Or what else?

Python :: Flex - "embed" A Python Back-end In An AIR Application?

Sep 21, 2009

I'm trying to find out if there is a way I could embed a Python back-end into an AIR application? I'm looking to employ an approach similar to the one outlined here to implement the business logic for my application, but additionally, I would like to provide the user with a single binary which they can load. I don't want the user to have to fire up a seperate server process to make this work.

Php :: Php Authentication (2) Launch A Flex App Which Knows The User Has Already Been Authenticated

May 30, 2009

Almost everything is in the title : Here's what I'd like to do :A nice html page with a php authentication process (http first then http**s** & so on) Launch a flex app which knows (I don't know how (this is the actual question !)) the user has already been authenticated and display his/her stuff he/she has to do for the day (or whatever...).

Of course if someone try to call directly the flex app I would display an "authentication error" message and then redirect to the authentication page.I'm sorry for my English which is perfectible.I was thinking about the session cookie : first authenticate then ass a variable on the server side, something like :

Python :: Make A Flex Application Where It Gets Data From A Telnet Connection?

Feb 7, 2010

I am trying to make a flex application where it gets data from a telnet connection and I am running into a weird problem.To give a brief introduction, i want to read data from a process that exposes it through a socket. So if in the shell i type telnet localhost 8651i receive the xml and then the connection is closed (I get the following Connection closed by foreign host.)

Anyway i found a simple tutorial online for flex that essentially is a telnet client and one would expect it to work but everything follows Murphy's laws and nothing ever works.Now i have messages being printed in every event handler and all places that i can think off. When i connect to the socket nothing happens, no event handler is triggered even the connect or close handler and if i do the following the socket.connected returns false! I get no errors, try catch raises no exception. I am at a loss as to whats going wrong?

socket.connect(serverURL, portNumber);

Is there something about telnet that i do not know and its causing this to not work. Whats more interesting is why none of the events get fired.The following is the python code that works!

def getStats(host, port):
sock = socket.socket()
sock.connect((host, port))[code]....

ActionScript 2.0 :: User Authentication Using PHP

Oct 30, 2009

I'm building a site that is placed behind a client login tool. I simply need my site to verify the users "authentication level" so they are forwarded to the correct "label/frame" on my time line.

I.E. Owners go to the "Owners" label on the time line, Managers go to the "Managers" label on the time line and Employees go to the "Employees" label on the time line.

I know Flash is accessing the PHP file as when I change the name of the PHP file, Flash provides an error. Therefore, I'm assuming it's reaching the file as I'm not getting any compiler/output errors.

My Actionscript

loadVariablesNum("newlogin.php", 0, "POST");
if(_root.checkLog = 100)


This PHP file is stored in the same folder as the FLASH SOURCE files and is pointed to it through it's local address ("newlogin.php", 0, "POST);

ActionScript 1/2 :: User Authentication Not Working On Site

Oct 29, 2009

Got a site almost complete however the user authentication isn't working. Simply put, I wish my website to reference a PHP file, which is echoing a users authentication level. Via the Actionscript, Flash pushes the user to the frame on the timeline they have the authority to view.

My PHP Code
<?phpecho 'checkLog=999';?>

My AS2 Code - This code is pasted in the first frame of the timeline
appname="mikesapp"loadVariablesNum("newlogin.php", 0, "POST");
//This verifies the users status and forwards them to the portion of the website they are authorized to access.////Auth Level 100 = Regional Access, Auth Level 200 = Franchise Access, Auth Level 300 = Employee Access, Auth Level 400 = Denied Access and Back Button as they do not have the privileges to move forward from there.//

this.onEnterFrame = function () {
if(_root.checkLog == 100){
} if(_root.checkLog == 200){
} if(_root.checkLog == 300){
} if(_root.checkLog == 999){
_root.gotoAndStop("denied"); }}

Because the "checkLog" value is 999, the user should be forwarded to the "denied" label in the timeline however it is not as the site simply loops over and over. I'm sure Flash is accessing the "newlogin.php" file as when I rename it, flash errors stating it cannot locate the file. I have changed it back to the correct name since.

Media :: FMS Application With Server Side Authentication

Feb 21, 2012

I am working on creating an FMS application which does an authentication on server side too. I hvae gone through a number of tutorials and the developer guide but not able to find a correct way to start working on this. I have been able to create a sample application which authenticates few parameters on the server side using the main.asc file with code for authentication on onConnect method. My main doubt right now is how do I set up an application which streams videos depending on this authentication. I am confused on how to setup a new application, how to setup the application.XML, which folder to store the files etc. Can some one guide me on this or give me reference to an application which actually does. A sample/tutorial which actually setups a custom FMS application for simple video streaming from scratch step-by-step would also do.

Python :: Including Flash Content Inline In A Custom Weblog?

Aug 1, 2010

I'm trying to think of a way to place Flash content into a blog post so that it appears inline between paragraphs. I'm writing a custom weblog application in Django (still learning) and I'll be using SWFObject for the embedding.The blog is for me only so the back-end isn't too fancy. I'm simply using Django's built in admin interface. No TinyMCE rich text editor (like Wordpress), rather I've implemented Markdown.I'd like to add Flash content into the body of a post, between paragraphs, in a way that is not coupled to any third party script. Meaning, I would prefer not to include javascript within the body of the blog post as it introduces a dependency on SWFObject. For example, I could quite easily add the following to an entry via the back-end to embed a SWF inline:[code]As you can see this is quite wordy and a lot to remember but it also refers to SWFObject directly. This WILL work, however I would prefer to write it in a "cleaner" more abstract way. What I was thinking of doing is creating my own parser which would translate a custom string into the above just before rendering a template.

IDE :: Flex Application As Custom UI Component

Dec 22, 2009

I'm making a UI for a component in Flash. I wanted to use Flex and have had no luck getting the onUpdate exernalInterface call to fire properly. I'm referencing the functionality described here: [URL]. First off, I can't embed the SWF in the FLA. It just won't start the Flex SWF. Even using the external swf, it seems that the onUpdate function is either called too early or not at all. Here's what I've tried:

Tying the externalInterfce declaration to the initialize, preinitialize, applicationComplete, and creationComplete events. Sub-classing my application and putting the externalInterface in the constructor. Neither of these options work. When I create a basic AS3 project in Eclipse and put the externalInferface in the constructor, it works as expected.

Actionscript :: Making Sure User Is Still Active In A Flex Application

Feb 18, 2011

I need to implement some sort of data locking in a Flex application I'm developing. A user clicks a specific button to "check out" the data set, and other users must wait until they are finished before they can make edits. After a period of inactivity, the application will release the lock to someone else.What I'm after is an easy way to determine if the user is still interacting with the application so they don't have to manually keep clicking "yes I want to continue editing". For example, I could handle all mouse clicks for the entire application and add 5 minutes to the timeout every time they click something. Are there any better options for doing something like this? Is there something built in to check for last interaction time?

Flex :: Load A Local File Without Having To Ask The User To Browse To It First In An AIR Application?

Jul 22, 2011

I'm writing a small application for myself and instead of using a database I'd like to just use Excel to store the small amount of data I have on my local file system. I want to be able to load that data without having to use the typical FileReference browse() method as it would just be annoying to do every time I use the application.

The code below seems to find the file fine as the file.exists method below and most of the other attributes seem to be correct but the is always null.I'm guessing this is a security issue and that's why I'm running into this problem but I thought I'd ask and see if there is in fact a way around this problem.

var file:File = new File(fullPath + "\" + currentFolder + ".txt");
if(file.exists) {
