Small and simple Python library to parse JWT tokens embedded in http auth. headers.

Project description

Python Auth. Header Parser

A small and simple library to parse JWT tokens embedded in Authorization or Authentication HTTP headers.

Note: This library does not decode the JWT token. It simply extracts the JWT token string from the header string.


from py_auth_header_parser import parse_auth_header

header = "Authorization: Bearer AAA, Refresh BBB"
parsed = parse_auth_header(header)

# 'parsed' will then contain:
  "access_token": "AAA",
  "refresh_token": "BBB",

parse_auth_header() will always return a dict with two keys: access_token and refresh_token.
When a refresh token is no present in the header, the refresh_token key will be None.
