Example Authorization Header with HMAC signature

Authorization: HMAC XH+v0qhV4i/89y/DT2OOJx9Kjf3f/0j+w2aGZk625nU=


$ pip install httpie-hmac-auth

You should now see hmac under --auth-type in $ http --help output.


$ http --auth-type=hmac --auth='client:secret'


To authenticate a client request when an access key is required by the server to lookup the shared secret:

$ http --auth-type=hmac --auth="client:secret"

To authenticate a client request when there is no requirement for a client to supply an access key:

$ http --auth-type=hmac --auth=":secret"
