Flask extension for CAS

Project description

flask-cas-ng
=========
flask-cas-ng is a maintenance fork of the original Flask-CAS
flask-cas-ng is a Flask extension which makes it easy to
authenticate with a CAS.

CAS
===

The Central Authentication Service (CAS) is a single sign-on
protocol for the web. Its purpose is to permit a user to access
multiple applications while providing their credentials (such as
userid and password) only once. It also allows web applications
to authenticate users without gaining access to a user's security
credentials, such as a password. The name CAS also refers to a
software package that implements this protocol.

(Very short) Setup Tutorial
===========================

First create a Flask instance:

.. code:: python

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

Apply CAS on your Flask instance:

.. code:: python

from flask_cas import CAS

CAS(app)

Do needed configuration:

.. code:: python

app.config['CAS_SERVER'] = 'https://sso.pdx.edu'

app.config['CAS_AFTER_LOGIN'] = 'route_root'

Using
=====

After you setup you will get two new routes `/login/`
and `/logout/`.
