DESCRIPTION

HTAuth is a pure ruby replacement for the Apache support programs htdigest and htpasswd. Command line and API access are provided for access to htdigest and htpasswd files.

FEATURES

HTAuth provides to drop in commands htdigest-ruby and htpasswd-ruby that can manipulate the digest and passwd files in the same manner as Apache's original commands.

htdigest-ruby and htpasswd-ruby are command line compatible with htdigest and htpasswd. They support the same exact same command line options as the originals, and have some extras.

Additionally, you can access all the functionality of htdigest-ruby and htpasswd-ruby through an API.

SYNOPSIS

htpasswd-ruby command line application

Usage:
htpasswd-ruby [-cmdpsD] passwordfile username
htpasswd-ruby -b[cmdpsD] passwordfile username password

htpasswd-ruby -n[mdps] username
htpasswd-ruby -nb[mdps] username password

-b, --batch                      Batch mode, get the password from the command line, rather than prompt
-c, --create                     Create a new file; this overwrites an existing file.
-d, --crypt                      Force CRYPT encryption of the password (default).
-D, --delete                     Delete the specified user.
-h, --help                       Display this help.
-m, --md5                        Force MD5 encryption of the password (default on Windows).
-n, --stdout                     Do not update the file; Display the results on stdout instead.
-p, --plaintext                  Do not encrypt the password (plaintext).
-s, --sha1                       Force SHA encryption of the password.
-v, --version                    Show version info.

htdigest-ruby command line application

Usage: htdigest-ruby [options] passwordfile realm username
-c, --create                     Create a new digest password file; this overwrites an existing file.
-D, --delete                     Delete the specified user.
-h, --help                       Display this help.
-v, --version                    Show version info.

API Usage

HTAuth::DigestFile.open("some.htdigest") do |df|
  df.add_or_update('someuser', 'myrealm', 'a password')
  df.delete('someolduser', 'myotherrealm')
end

HTAuth::PasswdFile.open("some.htpasswd", HTAuth::File::CREATE) do |pf|
  pf.add('someuser', 'a password', 'md5')
  pf.add('someotheruser', 'a different password', 'sha1')
end
