Easy to integrate basic HTTP authentication for Flask apps

Project Description

Flask-HTAuth provides Flask apps with easy to integrate basic HTTP authentication. The extension supports standard htpasswd files.

Installation

Install with the usual:

pip install flask-htauth

or download source from GitHub:

git clone https://github.com/tomekwojcik/flask-htauth.git
cd flask-htauth
python setup.py develop

Configuration

Flask-HTAuth uses the following settings:

  • HTAUTH_HTPASSWD_PATH - path to htpasswd file,
  • HTAUTH_REALM - authentication realm (defaults to Protected Area)

Example app

from flask import Flask, g
from flask.ext import htauth
import os

HTPASSWD = os.path.join(os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(__file__)), 'htpasswd')

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config['HTAUTH_HTPASSWD_PATH'] = HTPASSWD
app.config['HTAUTH_REALM'] = 'Top Secret Area'

auth = htauth.HTAuth(app)

@app.route('/')
def app_index():
    return 'Hello, World!'

@app.route('/secret')
@htauth.authenticated
def app_secret():
    return 'Hello, ' + g.htauth_user + '!'

If the request is missing Authorization header or auth data is invalid the authenticated decorator will return response that will force the user agent to request authentication data from the user.

Features

  • Basic auth,
  • Support for MD5, SHA and crypt htpasswd password encrypting.

License

Flask-HTAuth is licensed under MIT License. See LICENSE for more details.

Credits
