Block all access to specific path prefixes


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ datasette install datasette-block


Add the following to metadata.json to block specific path prefixes:

    "plugins": {
        "datasette-block": {
            "prefixes": ["/all/"]

This will cause a 403 error to be returned for any path beginning with /all/.

This blocking happens as an ASGI wrapper around Datasette.

Why would you need this?

You almost always would not. I use it with datasette-ripgrep to block access to static assets for unauthenticated users.


To set up this plugin locally, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd datasette-block
python3 -mvenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Or if you are using pipenv:

pipenv shell

Now install the dependencies and tests:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:
