#242 Need API to get descriptions of the options and providers
Closed: Fixed None Opened 11 years ago by tmraz.

To make the API presentable in the authconfig UI we need an API to get descriptions of the options and provider types and subtypes.

For example:

get_provider_description(type)
get_subtype_description(subtype)
get_option_description(optionname)

These descriptions would be presented in the authconfig UI instead of displaying just the short names directly. The exception might be the provider type where the description of the provider would be probably displayed only as a tooltip.

The descriptions should be localized in the config API so an already localized string should be returned.


Splitting this into two bugs. Bug #244 will address localization.

I have extended the list_options() functions so that the returned tuple will also include a description field. See the pydoc for details.
