Rack::Unbasic

Wraps HTTP authentication in more friendly workflows.

Usage

require "rack-unbasic"

use Rack::Unbasic do |on|
  on.bad_request '/login'
  on.unauthorized '/login'
end

A response with a 401 or 400 status code will be redirected to the routes you specify in the config, with the \env['rack-unbasic.code'] set to whatever the original status code was, and \env['rack-unbasic.return-to'] set to whatever the requested URI was.

When a request comes in with :username and :password params, those will be mapped to basic auth credentials, and the appropriate headers will be added.

Once authorized, the appropriate credentials will be stashed in the session. Subsequent requests will use the credentials in the session for authorization.

Install

gem install rack-unbasic

Or cloning the git source repository:

git clone git://github.com/foca/rack-unbasic.git
