Installation

pip install httpauth

Using with credentials dictionary

secured_wsgi_app = httpauth.DictHttpAuthMiddleware(
   {'user1': 'password1', 'user2': 'password2'},
   wsgi_app=unsecured_wsgi_app,
   #realm='Secured Content', # optional
)

   {'user': 'password'},
   wsgi_app=unsecured_wsgi_app,
   routes=['^/admin/', '^/another/secret/page/$'],
)
