Is It possible to add a google Authentication layer to Bokeh?

I believe R-Shiny has this option. I also believe older versions of Bokeh had authentication, and now it appears this is no more.

Hi Jordan,

Support for built-in Bokeh server auth was removed because for the most part, people trying to make "real world" deployments want to integrate directly with their existing AAA services, and not use anything canned or built-in to Bokeh. And people just using it locally want it to "just work". There is simply no way we can support all the different systems people might want to work with (and we must acknowledge as well that we are not experts in this area), so the decision was taken to delegate to other facilities. So as of 0.11.1 to add Google auth in front of a Bokeh server app, you would need to run behind Nginx, or Apache, or something else that can do the authentication. There are other benefits to this configuration as well, namely scale-out behind a load balancer is possible.

That said, with recent capabilities for user-extensible models, as well as upcoming support for custom Jinja templates and static resources, I think it would be easy to demonstrate a single page app that performs auth of whatever sort around embedded bokeh plots and widgets. It might also be more appropriate now to imagine a path for optional server extensions for things like auth. Proposals (or PRs) for that sort of optional and clearly separated feature could certainly be entertained.

Thanks,

Bryan

Big thanks for the reply. I believe I am in a minority group where I have built a large scale single page app in Bokeh, and now I am trying to add a few new features, such as data export to .csv, Authentication, etc, and I am trying to avoid rewriting the app in Flask and incorporating bokeh that way. Overall I find the process of creating single page dashboard apps with Bokeh to be incredibly fun and easy, minus these few missing features.

However, I do think an “export to excel” Tool for DataTable would be quite useful, is this worth opening a github Issues/Feature Request for?

Jordan,

I am actually *really* excited about the custom templates and static asset serving that will enable easy single page apps from a Bokeh server. There are definitely times when a more sophisticated embedding in Flask, Django, etc. is the way to go but I think making SPAs with custom templates and styling trivial to create will be a huge feature that many users will find useful!

Saving data to .csv is definitely something app code could do, if there are users/auth to contend with that obviously complicates matters a little bit. Please let us know if we can help make an example like that, it would be good to demonstrate for other users.

Thanks,

Bryan

Bryan,
I would like to hear more about saving to .csv. I currently cant figure out a way to get that to work. Since there is no export tool. Ive created a button, with a callback associated to on_click. I think the primary issue is writing the callback. an example would be insanely helpful.

Will this entail a python bokeh templating DSL or will one be required to learn/use jinja?

Templ,

My current work centers around Jinja2, since that is what is already in use internally by Bokeh. Also it seems better to utilize an existing and popular tool than to invent something new without a good reason. But if there is enough interest in other options for templating, we could consider adding support for other libraries.
