Configuring repoze.who in a INI file

You can configure your repoze.who based authentication via a *.ini file, and then load such settings in your application.

Say we have a file called who.ini with the following contents:

[general]
request_classifier = repoze.who.classifiers:default_request_classifier
challenge_decider = repoze.who.classifiers:default_challenge_decider

[identifiers]
plugins =
  auth_tkt

[authenticators]
plugins =
  auth_tkt
  dev_auth

[challengers]
plugins =
    form;browser

[mdproviders]
plugins =
  dev_properties
  dev_groups

[plugin:form]
use = repoze.who.plugins.form:make_plugin
rememberer_name = auth_tkt

[plugin:auth_tkt]
use = repoze.who.plugins.auth_tkt:make_plugin
secret = s3kr1t

[plugin:dev_auth]
use = who_dev:JSONAuthenticatorPlugin
data = {
  "someuser":  {
    "password": "abc123",
    "properties": {
      "first_name": "Some",
      "last_name": "User",
      "email": "someuser@localhost"
    },
    "groups": ["members", "editors"]
  }
}

[plugin:dev_properties]
use = who_dev:JSONPropertiesPlugin
source_key = properties

[plugin:dev_groups]
use = who_dev:JSONPropertiesPlugin
source_key = groups

Framework-specific documentation

You may want to check the following framework-specific documents to learn tips on how to implement repoze.who in the framework you are using:

Configuration

JSONAuthenticatorPlugin

This plugin uses a JSON object as a database, where each key in the object is the userid and the value is another object with specific details about the user, which can then be used along ith JSONPropertiesPlugin to retrieve specific details about the user.

Each record for a user must at a minimum contain a password entry so that the user can authenticate, for example:

data={
  "someuser": {"password": "abc123"},
  "otheruser": {"password": "xyz789"}
}
Setting Default Description
data   Required A JSON object contaiing records for each test userid.

JSONPropertiesPlugin

This plugin uses the specific key in the authenticator data to lookup specific details about a user.

Setting Default Description
source_key   Required Sets the remote user data to the value located at source_key for the currently authenticated userid.
