        my ( $user, $pass ) = @_;

DESCRIPTION

This plugin gives you the option to use HTTP Basic authentication with Dancer2.

You can set a handler to check the supplied credentials. If you don't set a handler, every username/password combination will work.

CAUTION

Don't ever use HTTP Basic authentication over clear-text connections! Always use HTTPS!

The only case were using HTTP is ok is while developing an application. Don't use HTTP because you think it is ok in corporate networks or something alike, you can always have bad bad people in your network..

CONFIGURATION
