Flask Based Heroku Authentication.

Project description


A set of Flask Route decorators to enable either Session-Based Authentication via Heroku’s OAuth mechanism, or Basic Stateless Authentication via Heroku’s API Key facilities.


pip install flask-heroku-auth


To enable regex routes within your application

from flask import Flask
from flask_heroku_auth import HerokuAuth

app = Flask(__name__)


from flask import Flask
from flask_heroku_auth import HerokuAuth

auth = HerokuAuth()

def create_app():
    app = Flask(__name__)
    return app

From here, it is a matter of decorating the appropriate routes.

For example, the following would implement authentication via the Heroku OAuth facility

def index():
    return "Ok"

On the other hand, you may wish to authenticate via the Heroku API Key facility. In this case, the credentials are sent through with every request as an ‘Authorization’ header

def index():
    return "Ok"

You can also restrict access to a Heroku user who has an email address.

def index():
    return "Ok"
