You can look at AuthAPI tests https://github.com/web2py/web2py/blob/master/gluon/tests/test_authapi.py
But a login controller could be as simple as this: Model: from gluon.authapi import AuthAPI auth = AuthAPI(db) controller def login(): return response.json(auth.login(**request.vars)) Using jwt like Richard's link does is a good option as well. -- Resources: - http://web2py.com - http://web2py.com/book (Documentation) - http://github.com/web2py/web2py (Source code) - https://code.google.com/p/web2py/issues/list (Report Issues) --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "web2py-users" group.
