Session

The session of a registered User.

Module Contents

class superduper.session.Session(user)

The session of a registered User.

Represents a gateway user logged in to the legacy network and performing actions.

Will be instantiated automatically on slidge startup for each registered user, or upon registration for new (validated) users.

Must be subclassed for a functional Legacy Module.

Parameters:

user (slidge.GatewayUser)

async login()

Logs in the gateway user to the legacy network.

Triggered when the gateway start and on user registration. It is recommended that this function returns once the user is logged in, so if you need to await forever (for instance to listen to incoming events), it’s a good idea to wrap your listener in an asyncio.Task.

Returns:

Optionally, a text to use as the gateway status, e.g., “Connected as ‘dude@legacy.network’”

async on_text(chat, text, *, reply_to_msg_id=None, reply_to_fallback_text=None, reply_to=None, thread=None, link_previews=(), mentions=None)

Triggered when the user sends a text message from XMPP to a bridged entity, e.g. to translated_user_name@slidge.example.com, or translated_group_name@slidge.example.com

Override this and implement sending a message to the legacy network in this method.

Parameters:
  • text (str) – Content of the message

  • chat (Recipient) – Recipient of the message. LegacyContact instance for 1:1 chat, MUC instance for groups.

  • reply_to_msg_id (Optional[str]) – A legacy message ID if the message references (quotes) another message (XEP-0461)

  • reply_to_fallback_text (Optional[str]) – Content of the quoted text. Not necessarily set by XMPP clients

  • reply_to (Optional[Sender]) – Author of the quoted message. LegacyContact instance for 1:1 chat, LegacyParticipant instance for groups. If None, should be interpreted as a self-reply if reply_to_msg_id is not None.

  • link_previews (Iterable[slidge.util.types.LinkPreview]) – A list of sender-generated link previews. At the time of writing, only Cheogram supports it.

  • mentions (Optional[list[slidge.util.types.Mention]]) – (only for groups) A list of Contacts mentioned by their nicknames.

  • thread (Optional[str])

Returns:

An ID of some sort that can be used later to ack and mark the message as read by the user

Return type:

Optional[str]

xmpp: slidge.core.gateway.BaseGateway

The gateway instance singleton. Use it for low-level XMPP calls or custom methods that are not session-specific.

MESSAGE_IDS_ARE_THREAD_IDS = False

Set this to True if the legacy service uses message IDs as thread IDs, eg Mattermost, where you can only ‘create a thread’ by replying to the message, in which case the message ID is also a thread ID (and all messages are potential threads).

SPECIAL_MSG_ID_PREFIX: str | None = None

If you set this, XMPP message IDs starting with this won’t be converted to legacy ID, but passed as is to on_react(), and usual checks for emoji restriction won’t be applied. This can be used to implement voting in polls in a hacky way.

Async:

Parameters:
  • muc (slidge.group.room.LegacyMUC)

  • legacy_msg_id (slidge.util.types.LegacyMessageType)

  • reason (Optional[str])

Triggered when the user attempts to retract a message that was sent in a MUC using XEP-0425.

If retraction is not possible, this should raise the appropriate XMPPError with a human-readable message.

NB: the legacy module is responsible for calling :method:`LegacyParticipant.moderate` when this is successful, because slidge will acknowledge the moderation IQ, but will not send the moderation message from the MUC automatically.

Parameters:
  • muc (slidge.group.room.LegacyMUC) – The MUC in which the message was sent

  • legacy_msg_id (slidge.util.types.LegacyMessageType) – The legacy ID of the message to be retracted

  • reason (Optional[str]) – Optionally, a reason for the moderation, given by the user-moderator.

abstract on_create_group(name, contacts)
Async:

Parameters:
Return type:

slidge.util.types.LegacyGroupIdType

Triggered when the user request the creation of a group via the dedicated Command.

Parameters:
Return type:

slidge.util.types.LegacyGroupIdType

async on_invitation(contact, muc, reason)

Triggered when the user invites a Contact to a legacy MUC via XEP-0249.

The default implementation calls LegacyMUC.on_set_affiliation() with the ‘member’ affiliation. Override if you want to customize this behaviour.

Parameters:
abstract on_leave_group(muc)
Async:

Parameters:

muc (slidge.group.room.LegacyMUC)

Triggered when the user leaves a group via the dedicated slidge command or the XEP-0077 <remove /> mechanism.

This should be interpreted as definitely leaving the group.

Parameters:

muc (slidge.group.room.LegacyMUC) – The group to leave

static legacy_to_xmpp_msg_id(legacy_msg_id)

Convert a legacy msg ID to a valid XMPP msg ID. Needed for read marks, retractions and message corrections.

The default implementation just converts the legacy ID to a str, but this should be overridden in case some characters needs to be escaped, or to add some additional, legacy network <Legacy Network>-specific logic.

Parameters:

legacy_msg_id (slidge.util.types.LegacyMessageType)

Returns:

A string that is usable as an XMPP stanza ID

Return type:

str

static xmpp_to_legacy_msg_id(i)

Convert a legacy XMPP ID to a valid XMPP msg ID. Needed for read marks and message corrections.

The default implementation just converts the legacy ID to a str, but this should be overridden in case some characters needs to be escaped, or to add some additional, legacy network <Legacy Network>-specific logic.

The default implementation is an identity function.

Parameters:

i (str) – The XMPP stanza ID

Returns:

An ID that can be used to identify a message on the legacy network

Return type:

slidge.util.types.LegacyMessageType

send_gateway_status(status=None, show=Optional[PresenceShows], **kwargs)

Send a presence from the gateway to the user.

Can be used to indicate the user session status, ie “SMS code required”, “connected”, …

Parameters:

  • show – Presence stanza ‘show’ element. I suggest using “dnd” to show that the gateway is not fully functional

send_gateway_message(text, **msg_kwargs)

Send a message from the gateway component to the user.

Can be used to indicate the user session status, ie “SMS code required”, “connected”, …

Parameters:

text (str) – A text

Send an invitation to join a MUC, emanating from the gateway component.

Parameters:
  • muc (slidge.group.room.LegacyMUC)

  • reason (Optional[str])

  • password (Optional[str])

async input(text, **msg_kwargs)

Request user input via direct messages from the gateway component.

Wraps call to BaseSession.input()

Parameters:
  • text (str) – The prompt to send to the user

  • msg_kwargs – Extra attributes

Returns:

async send_qr(text)
