NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Simple

    $c->login( $user, $password );
    $c->logout;
    $c->session_login( $user, $password );
    $c->session_logout;

DESCRIPTION

Note that this plugin requires a session plugin like Catalyst::Plugin::Session::FastMmap.

METHODS

login

Attempt to authenticate a user. Takes username/password as arguments,

    $c->login( $user, $password );

User remains authenticated until end of request.

    Format of user_file:
    <username1>:<password1>:<role1>,<role2>,<role3>,...
    <username2>:<password2>:<role1>,<role2>,<role3>,...

    OR array ref of those values in 'users' key

Note: users_file will NOT get reloaded if you change it BUT you CAN change the 'users' arrayref w/o a restart...

logout

Log out the user. will not clear the session, so user will still remain logged in at next request unless session_logout is called.

    $c->roles(qw/foo bar/);

EXTENDED METHODS
