NAME

Plack::Middleware::Auth::Htpasswd - http basic authentication through apache-style .htpasswd files

VERSION

version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

  use Plack::Builder;
  my $app = sub { ... };

  builder {
      enable "Auth::Htpasswd", file => '/path/to/.htpasswd';
      $app;
  };

or

  builder {
      enable "Auth::Htpasswd", file_root => '/path/to/my/static/files';
      $app;
  };

DESCRIPTION

This middleware enables HTTP Basic authenication, based on the users in an Apache-style htpasswd file. You can either specify the file directly, through the file option, or use the file_root option to specify the root directory on the filesystem that corresponds to the web application root. This second option is more useful when using an app that is closely tied to the filesystem, such as Plack::App::Directory. If file_root is used, the requested path will be inspected, and a file named .htpasswd will be checked in each containing directory, up to the file_root. The first one found will be used to validate the requested user.

CONFIGURATION

file

Name of a .htpasswd file to read authentication information from. Required if file_root is not set.

file_root

Path to the on-disk directory that corresponds to the root URL path of the app. Required file is not set, and ignored if file is set.

realm

Realm name to display in the basic authentication dialog. Defaults to 'restricted area'.

CREDITS

Large parts of this code were modeled after (read: stolen from) Plack::Middleware::Auth::Basic by Tatsuhiko Miyagawa.
