Puts your staging site behind a basic auth layer.

Project description

Latest PyPI version Latest Travis CI build status

A very basic Basic Auth middleware that uses a username/password defined in your environment variable or to protect whole of your site. Does not use Django auth.

Handy for quickly securing an entire site during development, for example.

Note: Environment variables is preferred over


# In


    # all other middleware here

# Optionally, set it here if not setting as environment variable
# Requires both variable to be set, else site won't be protected.


pip install django-auth-wall


Please make sure that you use SSL/TLS (HTTPS) to encrypt the connection between the client and the server, when using basic access authentication. In basic access authentication username and password are sent in cleartext, and if SSL/TLS is not used, the credentials could be easily intercepted.
