Simple password-only protection
Super simple password protection for limiting public access to pages and assets
Django Simple Auth is a secondary authentication system for protecting any URLs served by your application from public access. It does not replace your authentication system. Rather its purpose is to provide very simple a simple password for non-public information like shared photo galleries.
First add the application to your Python path. The easiest way is to use pip:
pip install django-simple-auth
As of version 0.2.0 this is only tested against Django 1.11+ and is probably compatible with Django 1.10 but this has not been tested.
Make sure you have django.contrib.auth installed, and add the simple_auth application to your INSTALLED_APPS list:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ ... 'django.contrib.auth', 'simple_auth', ]
Next add simple_auth.urls to your project URLs.:
... url(r'^protect/', include('simple_auth.urls')),
If you want to enable default rule-based limits on your site, install the SimpleAuthMiddleware:
MIDDLEWARE = [ ... 'simple_auth.middleware.SimpleAuthMiddleware', ]
By default this will require a password for all URLs except for URLs prefaced with /admin/. These URLs can be overridden using protect and ignore settings.:
SIMPLE_AUTH_IGNORE = [ r'^admin/, r'^$', ] SIMPLE_AUTH_PROTECT = [ r'^forums/' r^blog/', r^secret_page.html$', ]
If a URL is listed in both the ignore and protect lists the default will be to protect the URL and simple_auth will emit a warning.
There are two ways to protect pages and assets: view decorators and middleware.
These methods will always allow authenticated users to access the URL.
To enable the middleware install the middleware class as described in the installation section.
Note: not implemented yet.
For function views:
from simple_auth import simple_auth_required @simple_auth_required def myview(request): ...
For class-based views:
from simple_auth import SimpleAuthMixin class MyView(SimpleAuthMixin, DetailView): ...
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
