While integrating mailman with our website, I am trying to integrate in our browse mode. When browsing lists, we generally try to show users the following pieces of data:
Mailing List Subscriptions Postings Publicity Access (listname) (moderated/open) (moderated/open) (advertised/not) (person's access to the list)
The only way I can see to pull this data is by using config_list. I've actually recoded this (my_config) to drop the comment fields since all I need is the variables and the values. But really, I only need very specific variables and values.
Has anyone come up with a simple way to either (a) directly access the configuration files for a given list from PHP or (b) used withlist (I'm not a Python programmer, so I'm hitting my brain against a wall right now... for anything advanced) to pull specific variables?
Is there a patch or some little piece of open source code somewhere that can help me with this problem?
Config_list seems to work ok but it is taking a lot of compute cycles to run it against 20 lists in a row on a browse screen...
You could try using
instead of config_list. That should be a little quicker; possibly quicker even than a withlist script.
Although, if you were to use bin/withlist -a rather than invoking bin/dumpdb separately for each list, that might be better.
Consider get_data.py as follows:
def get_data(mlist, user): print "Mailing List: %s" % mlist.real_name print "Subscribe Policy: %d" % mlist.subscribe_policy print "Default Moderation: %s" % mlist.default_member_moderation print "Advertised: %s" % mlist.advertised print "%s is member: %s" % (user, mlist.isMember(user))
and run by
bin/withlist -a -r get_data -- firstname.lastname@example.org
That's probably not really what you want as I had to guess what you meant by "Postings" and "Access" and my guesses gave some things that aren't available from config_list.
