Hello, how can I use Genie Builder together with Genie authentication? Which steps are required to setup the database connection?

Hello, thanks for the quick reply! Unfortunately, I get an error running SearchLight.Generator.newconfig(). I did the following: I generated a new app using Genie builder called auth_test. Then, I used SearchLight.Generator.newconfig() as stated by you. What can I do to make it running?

@Juliane Müller-Sielaff I'm not familiar with the authentication module yet, but I can try to explain how to use the DB. I'll soon do a tutorial about this; if you need any more help please ask

in this repo 1 we have a demo of an app working with a database. You first have to create a connection.yml file in the db/ folder, and then connect to the db with SearchLight.Configuration.load() |> SearchLight.connect

In createdb.jl you'll find the steps to work with a db as:

  1. connect to a sqlite db
  2. generate the migration and module files for a new resource
  3. edit the migration file with the table schema for the resource
  4. define in the resource module in app/resources/ the resource struct matching the table schema
  5. execute the migration to create the table
  6. seed the table with some initial data

I am currently working on GenieAuthentication. I'll be able to help you on this day after tomorrow

short answer is currently it's not straight forward to use GAuth with GenieBuilder

Hello, I found a solution by myself 🙂

  1. create the Genie Builder App
  2. Create database similar to:
  3. follow the GenieAuthentication instructions:
  4. Remove lines with „output_flash“ from html files in app/resources/authentication/views and AuthenticationController.jl
  5. Add following to app.jl :
    1. @page("/login", "app/resources/authentication/views/login.jl.html")
    2. @page("/register", "app/resources/authentication/views/register.jl.html")
    3. @page("/success", "app/resources/authentication/views/success.jl.html")

Then, it works 🙂

@Juliane Müller-Sielaff question. How are you authenticating a route? You didn't post that logic

route("/protected_route", MyController.index)
module MyController

function index
