Buildout extension providing basic authentication support

Project description

This is a fork of isotoma.buildout.basicauth. Main differences are:

  • Added Python 3 support.


This buildout extension allows your buildouts to use ${buildout:extends} or eggs that are protected by basic auth. The minimum configuration:

extensions = cykooz.buildout.basicauth

Any downloads that require basic auth will now prompt for a username and password. It will be stored in a secure keyring if one is available. If your credentials are in .pypirc they will be detected and used.

You can provide credentials to the extension via buildout, for non-interactive situations. For example:

credentials =
interactive = false

uri =
username = user
password = chunky

Each of the credentials parts provides authentication details for a different uri. The part must contain a uri, user and password to be used by the extension.

The “interactive” option determines whether or not fetcher methods can prompt the user for input.
