I am trying to return a list of items modified with each item also
showing like the number of modifications.
Returning a list of user modified items was done easily but I would
also like to display the item modified by the user and the
modifications of that particular item.
Typical way it coould be displayed like is,
Modified item: No of modifications to it
E.g. sl33k: 3
Some background of the base class methods used:
list_revisions() - gets the list of ints of the all modification of a
get_revision() - given the modification int, it gets the specific
item.name gives the name of the item
The method takes for argument the list of items.
I start by declaring a set() of the total modified items. Using for
loop in the items and in the for loop for particular `int`
modification of it, I collect the modified item.
But, I get stuck around when I have to collect the no of modifications
for one. The set is returned as a list to a template engine for the
So, I would like to collect for each item, its no of modifications.
How would I go about doing this? How would i return it with list of
modified items tp display the above shown example?
Any pointers will be much appreciated.
modified_items = set()
rev_count = 
for item in items:
item_name = item.name
revnos = item.list_revisions()
for revno in revnos:
revision = item.get_revision(revno)
if modications userid == loggedin users userid:
# How do i collect revisions here
