Built-in Methods

Toto includes some built-in methods to support frequently used functionality. These methods can be included in your method module by importing them into the module scope like this:

#main methods module
import toto.methods.account.create as account_create

#method.account module
import toto.methods.account.create as create

In the above examples, Toto’s built in account.create method can be called from your method module as account_create and account.create respecively.


toto.methods.client_error.invoke(handler, parameters)[source]

to Toto’s server log. It works with the registerErrorHandler() method in toto.js.

The “client_error” parameter should be set to the string to be written to Toto’s log. Currently, the “client_type” parameter must be set to “browser_js” for an event to be written. Otherwise, this method has no effect.

Required parameters: client_error, client_type.


The methods.account module provides simple implementations of common methods around account creation and management.
