Return type:int


Configure OAI-PMH Repo Handler


Get settings and configure application.

Declares application spesific configuration options and some common options declared in kuha_common.cli_setup

Configure application with arguments specified in configuration file, environment variables and command line arguments.

Note:Calling this function multiple times will not initiate new settings to be parsed, but will return previously parsed settings instead.
Parameters:settings – Optional settings to use for configuration. If settings are already loaded this parameter will be silently ignored.
Return type:argparse.Namespace


Load genshi templates.


from genshi_loader import add_template_folder, set_template_writer

Use as decorator:

from genshi_loader import OAITemplate

class Handler:
    async def build_error_message(self):
        return {'msg': 'there was an error'}
kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.genshi_loader.FOLDERS = []

Template folders. There can be multiple.


Add folder to lookup for templates.

Parameters:folder (str) – absolute path to folder containing genshi templates.

Get template folder.

Returns:template folders.
Return type:list
kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.genshi_loader.WRITER = []

Template writer. Function which accepts an iterator as parameter.


Set template writer.

Note:Supports only one template writer.

Get template writer.

Returns:template writer
Return type:function
class kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.genshi_loader.OAITemplate(template_file)[source]

OAITemplate class.

Decorate functions that should write output to genshi-templates. The decorated function must be an asynchronous function and it must return a dictionary.


from genshi_loader import OAITemplate
class Handler:
    async def build_error_message(self):
        return {'msg': 'there was an error'}
  • template_file (str) – filename of the template to use.

Define handlers for responding to HTTP-requests.

class kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.handlers.OAIRouteHandler(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Handle requests to OAI endpoint.

OAIRouteHandler extends kuha_common.server.RequestHandler.

Input and output goes throught this class. It is responsible for accepting requests via HTTP and routing the requests to OAI-protocol and to the correct verb-handler. Verb-handlers are defined in this class.

Verb-handlers are responsible for calling the kuha_common.query.QueryController and again routing the records to OAI-protocol.

Verb-handlers also define the templates used to serialize XML, which is then sent as HTTP-response via template_writer().

The oai protocol is defined in kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.oai.protocol.


Prepare each response.

Initialize response. Load query controller. Set output content type.


Writes the output from genshi template.

Parameters:generator (generator) – generator object containing the XML-serialization.

HTTP-GET handler

Gathers request arguments. Calls router. Finishes the response.

“URLs for GET requests have keyword arguments appended to the base URL”



HTTP-POST handler

Validates request content type. Gathers request arguments. Calls router. Finishes the response.

“Keyword arguments are carried in the message body of the HTTP POST. The Content-Type of the request must be application/x-www-form-urlencoded.”



Run list records sequence on-demand against an OAI-PMH Repo Handler.

Helper script runs through the entire list records sequence with a given metadataPrefix and conditions. Can be used to ensure that all records within a repository are good to serve by catching timeouts from Document Store Client and non-serializable Document Store records.

Logs out the time it takes to complete the full sequence. Prints out all identifiers found by the requested conditions.

If any error conditions are encountered, the best place to look for the cause is the Kuha OAI-PMH Repo Handler log output and Kuha Document Store log output.

exception kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.list_records.InvalidOAIResponse[source]

The response was not expected.

Raised when:

  • HTTP response code is invalid
  • Result cannot be parsed as XML
  • OAI response has error <error> element

Command line interface entry point.

Gather configuration. Setup application. Run sequence and report encountered identifiers.

Returns:0 on success
Return type:int


Defines OAI-PMH protocol.

class kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.oai.protocol.ResumptionToken(cursor=0, from_=None, until=None, complete_list_size=None, metadata_prefix=None, set_=None)[source]

Class representing OAI-PMH Resumption Token.

Holds attributes of the resumption token. Creates a new resumption token with initial values or takes a dictionary of resumption token arguments. Validates the token based on records list size. If the list size has been changed between requests asserts that the token is invalid by raising a kuha_oai_pmh_repo_handler.oai.errors.BadResumptionToken exception.


Since OAIArgument.set_ is not supported by resumption token, changing the requested set may result in falsely valid resumption token. But changing the requested set in the middle of a list request sequence should be seen as bad behaviour by the requester/harvester.

  • cursor (int) – Optional parameter for the current position in list.
  • from (str.) – Optional parameter for from datestamp. Converted to datetime.datetime on init.
  • until (str.) – Optional parameter for until datestamp. Converted to datetime.datetime on init.
