Iliad Framework, a status widget for displaying the current user

In the previous post we completed the users registration form. Now we can use the login form.

To show the current user in the next pages we will implement a current user heading as a widget:

ILWidget subclass: #PnCurrentUserHeading
    instanceVariableNames: ''
    classVariableNames: ''
    poolDictionaries: ''
    category: 'LeonardoBlog'

In the contents of this widget we will use the application method of the ILWidget class to access the current application and the current user:

!PnCurrentUserHeading methodsFor: 'building'!
contents
    ^ [ :e | 
    e div
        cssClass: 'navbar navbar-static-top bs-docs-nav';
        build: [ :header | 
                    header div
                        class: 'navbar-brand';
                        text: 'Project Notes for ' , self application currentuser email.
                    (header ul
                        cssClass: 'nav navbar-nav';
                        li)
                        build: [ :logout | 
                            logout a
                                text: 'Logout';
                                action: [ self logout ] ] ] ]

We also included a logout action that reset the current user and redirect the application to the login page:

!PnCurrentUserHeading methodsFor: 'actions'!
logout
    self application currentuser:nil.
    self redirectToLocal: 'login'.

We include this widget in the application class like we have done before with the login and the registration page:

ILApplication subclass: #LcBlogProjectNotes
    instanceVariableNames: 'loginWidget registrationWidget currentuser currentUserWidget'
    classVariableNames: ''
    poolDictionaries: ''
    category: 'LeonardoBlog'

!LcBlogProjectNotes methodsFor: 'accessing'!
currentUserWidget
    ^ currentUserWidget ifNil: [ currentUserWidget := PnCurrentUserHeading new ]

Now we create a new notes controller:

!LcBlogProjectNotes methodsFor: 'controllers'!
notes
    ^ [ :e | e build:(self currentUserWidget). ]
