aiohttp middleware for working with JWT

Project description


stability-unstable Updates Python 3 Build Status codecov Documentation Status

The API is in the process of settling, but has not yet had sufficient real-world testing to be considered stable. Backwards-compatibility will be maintained if reasonable.

The library provides aiohttp middleware and helper utils for working with JSON web tokens.

  • Works on Python3.5+
  • MIT License
  • Latest docs TBD
  • Contributions are highly welcome!



$ pip install aiohttp_jwt

Simple Usage

import jwt
from aiohttp import web

from aiohttp_jwt import JWTMiddleware

sharable_secret = 'secret'

async def protected_handler(request):
    return web.json_response({'user': request['payload']})

app = web.Application(

app.router.add_get('/protected', protected_handler)

if __name__ == '__main__':

import asyncio

import aiohttp
import async_timeout

async def fetch(session, url, headers=None):
    async with async_timeout.timeout(10):
        async with session.get(url, headers=headers) as response:
            return await response.json()

async def main():
    async with aiohttp.ClientSession() as session:
        response = await fetch(
            headers={'Authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJ1c2VybmFtZSI6InRlc3QifQ.pyNsXX_vNsUvdt6xu13F1Gs1zGELT4Va8a38eG5svBA'})

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()



This module inspired by official auth0/express-jwt middleware and express-jwt-permissions extension.
