HTTP Basic Auth implementation

Project description

# http-basic-auth


[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/bugov/http-basic-auth.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/bugov/http-basic-auth)

Yep, it's one more HTTP Basic Auth python lib. The second. And I tried
to use the first, but it had a bug (which I fixed) and... completely
wrong realisation of non-latin encoding/decoding.

# Install

```bash
pip3 install http-basic-auth
```

# ♥️ RFC

It supports only RFC-2617 (RFC-7617 planning).

If you find some mistake – please write to [issue list 🐨](https://github.com/bugov/http-basic-auth/issues).

# ♥️ Non-latin symbols

http-basic-auth ♥ utf-8

```bash
→ curl --user name:пароль https://httpbin.org/headers
{
"headers": {
"Accept": "*/*",
"Authorization": "Basic bmFtZTrQv9Cw0YDQvtC70Yw=",
"Connection": "close",
"Host": "httpbin.org",
"User-Agent": "curl/7.54.0"
}
}
```

And even

```bash
→ curl --user 😁:пар:öль https://httpbin.org/headers
{
"headers": {
"Accept": "*/*",
"Authorization": "Basic 8J+YgTrQv9Cw0YA6w7bQu9GM",
"Connection": "close",
"Host": "httpbin.org",
"User-Agent": "curl/7.54.0"
}
}
```

All works well

```python
from http_basic_auth import generate_header, parse_header


assert "Basic 8J+YgTrQv9Cw0YA6w7bQu9GM" == generate_header('😁', 'пар:öль')
assert ('😁', 'пар:öль') == parse_header("Basic 8J+YgTrQv9Cw0YA6w7bQu9GM")
```

# Provides functions

- `generate_header`: `(user, password) → "Basic <token>"`
- `parse_header`: `"Basic <token>" → (user, password)`
- `generate_token`: `(user, password) → "<token>"`
- `parse_token`: `"<token>" → (user, password)`
