Passing values from the view to the form.

Passing values from the view to the form it is really popular. Ex: form should be different for different kind of the user. Unfortunately I have not seen a documentation how to do this with class based view.

This task is separated in the two parts:
1) Prepare values in the view

class Myview():
""" This is only example view """
# set form
form_class = myformwithadditionallogic
# our function which pass some values to the form
def get_initial(self):
""" Passing initial values to the form"""
# default initial should be saved
super(Myview, self).get_initial()
self.initial = {"ourvalue":1}
return self.initial

That all for view.
Second part is retreive this data in the form:

class myformwithadditionallogic():
""" the example form . has no field only constructor
def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
""" Constructor """
myvalues = kwargs.pop( 'initial', None)
# Save default values
super(myformwithadditionallogic, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
# print our values or do something else
print myvalues['ourvalue']

That all !

I'm using virtual server based on Debian Linux for some my free projects.  One of them is based on Postgres with PostGIS extension.   This windy rainy day is a good time for executing some upgrade. Also I would like to add partman extension for partituoning.

Postfix can not start via systemd (simple fix)

Solving problem related to systemd process I like postfix.   This is really smart and secure mail server. I'm helping above  dozen clients around the world and  tunning  postfix is really fun task. This morning I was downgrading postfix  to the stable version for one of the my friends and come across interesting issue.

Small python script for monitoring MySQL performance

I have few services which use MySQL as database server. I would like to have information about load in PNG  image  or  in Cacti app.
MySQL   has  performance information at 'SHOW STATUS' command.

Values  which  are monitored : 
 threads_running, threads_connected, thread_cached, slow_queries
 Of course,  it is really easy to add more variables.

Connection to MySQL is accomplished by MySQLdb  module. Typical example of usage is below :
import MySQLdb mydb = MySQLdb.connect(host = 'hostname', user = 'username', password = 'secret', database = 'mysatabase' ) mycursor = mydb.cursor() mycursor.execute('SQL command') sqlresult = cur.fetchall()
