This is an opt-in feature: set ENABLE_RESTRICTED_APP_ACCESS to True in portal_config.yml to use this feature.
Apps now have an access permission that can be used to grant access to specific users or groups.
When a users does not have access to an app it will be hidden in the apps library.
If a user without permission to access an app enters one of the app URLs, they will see a 404 page.
Configure access to apps by creating a permission Group with access to the App and then assign any number of users to that group.
The access permission is automatically enforced for all views of apps.

See: install command
collectstaticcommand changed to copy the static directory instead of link it to be more consistent with how other static files are handled.
Alleviates a workaround that was necessary in SE Linux environments (the links couldn't be followed).
Old linking behavior still available via the
See: manage command

Use this presentation in workshops and training courses to provide an overview of the latest features in Tethys Platform 3.0: Tethys Platform 3.0 Overview Presentation.
Django was updated to version 2.2, the next LTS version of Django.
It will be supported until April 2022.
Includes the latest security updates.
Tethys Platform no longer supports Python 2.
This is in large part because Django no longer supports Python 2 as of version 2.0.
Python 2 is also reaching its end of life in 2020 (supposedly).
Tethys has been Conda packaged
It can be installed from our Conda channel.
The JQuery and Bootstrap libraries that Tethys provides were upgraded to address known security vulnerabilities (see: https://snyk.io/test/npm/bootstrap/3.2.0 and https://snyk.io/test/npm/jquery/1.11.1).
Bootstrap has been upgraded to version 3.4.1 (not 4 yet, sorry).
Coincidentally, JQuery was also upgraded to version 3.4.1.
Tethys comes with Django Channels
Django Channels wraps the synchronous Django process in an asynchronous process, allowing developers to use modern web protocols like WebSockets.
WebSockets allow for a bidirectional, long-lived connections between the server and client.
See: WebSockets Concepts
See: Bokeh Integration
Documentation for Tethys
UrlMaphas been added. This includes a description of the newly added
Tethys comes with Django Analytical installed to enable support form a number of analytics and tracking services.
You can now enable analytics tracking (e.g. Google Analytics) to every page of your apps and portal with a few settings in the settings file.
Tethys Quotas allow portal administrators to have better control over the resources being used by users and apps (e.g. disk storage).
Tethys ships with quotas for workspace storage implemented, but it is disabled by default. When enabled, portal administrators can set limits on the storage users or apps are able to use.
Tethys Quotas are completely extensible, allowing developer to create custom quotas for other resources (e.g. memory usage, database storage, wall time hours, etc.).
The User Profile now includes a page for managing storage in the user's workspace accross all apps in the portal. Users can choose to clear the storage in their workspace for an app.
The App Settings page now includes information about storage in the app's workspace and provides a method for clearing that workspace.
New endpoints on the App class allow app developers to respond to requests to clear storage from users.
See: Tethys Quotas
Tethys will now use a new configuration file:
portal_config.ymlwill store information about which services should be used for installed apps and the portal settings
Tethys Portal settings will now be configured in the new
portal_config.ymlfile, rather than the
This will allow for the local settings to be retained when Tethys is updated in the future (no more regenerating the
settings.pyfile when you update).
Site settings will also be able to be configured via the
portal_config.yml(e.g. primary color, logo, home page content).
The CLI has a new command for managing the Tethys database.
It includes subcommands for initializing the tethys database, starting and stopping the local database, migrating the database between releases, and creating the tethys superuser.
See: db command
tethys dockercommand now uses the latest version of the Docker Python API.
See: docker command
The documentation for the command line interface has moved to a new location.
The CLI documenation is automatically generated from the code to ensure accuracy.
App now require an
install.ymlfile which allows dependencies to be installed using conda or pip.
Apps can also use an optional
services.ymlportal specific file that will automatically link services.
The CLI has a new command for installing apps: tethys install.
The structure of apps and the way they are installed has changed.
The changes will allow Tethys to be updated in the future without the need to reinstall apps afterward.
Tethys 2 Apps will need to be migrated to work in Tethys 3.
New TethysJob types for submitting and managing Dask Jobs.
Dask allows pure Python code to be automagically parallelized and executed accross a distributed cluster of nodes.
New Gizmo for adding Cesium 3D globes to Tethys Apps.
The initial view can be configured almost entirely using Python in the controller.
See: Cesium Map View

tethys uninstallcommand would not remove the database entry if the files were removed manually.
Removed hardcoded "src" directory to allow tethys to be installed in directories of any name.
Fixed issue where tags for disabled or not shown apps were still showing up.
Python 3 officially supported in Tethys Platform.
Python 2 support officially deprecated and will be dropped when Tethys Platform 3.0 is released.
Tethys needs to migrate to Python 3 only so we can upgrade to Django 2.0, which only supports Python 3.
Migrate your apps to Python 3. After Tethys Platform 3.0 is released, Python 2 will no longer be supported by Tethys Platform.
Tests pass in Python 2 and Python 3.
Unit tests cover 100% of testable code.
Code base linted using flake8 to enforce PEP-8 and other Python coding best practices.
Automated test execution on Travis-CI and Stickler-CI whenever a Pull Request is submitted.
