DESCRIPTION

This plugin uses Authen::Htpasswd to let your application use <.htpasswd> files for it's authentication storage.

METHODS

new

Simple constructor, dies if the htpassword file can't be found

find_user

Looks up the user, and returns a Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Htpasswd::User object.

user_supports

Delegates to Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Htpasswd::User-user_supports|Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Htpasswd::User#user_supports>

from_session

Delegates the user lookup to find_user

CONFIGURATION

file

The path to the htpasswd file. If the path starts with a slash, then it is assumed to be a fully qualified path, otherwise the path is fed through $c-path_to > and so normalised to the application root.

Alternatively, it is possible to pass in an " Authen::Htpasswd " object here, and this will be used as the htpasswd file.

user_class

Change the user class which this store returns. Defaults to " Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Htpasswd::User ". This can be used to add additional functionality to the user class by sub-classing it, but will not normally be needed.

user_field

Change the field that the username is found in in the information passed into the call to $c->authenticate().

This defaults to username , and generally you should be able to use the module as shown in the synopsis, however if you need a different field name then this setting can change the default.

Example:

    __PACKAGE__->config( authentication => { realms => { test => {
                    store => {
                        class => 'Htpasswd',
                        user_field => 'email_address',
                    },
    }}});
    # Later in your code
    $c->authenticate({ email_address => $c->req->param("email"), password => $c->req->param("password") });
