This buildout extension allows your buildouts to use ${buildout:extends} or eggs that are protected by basic auth. The minimum configuration:

extensions = isotoma.buildout.basicauth

Any downloads that require basic auth will now prompt for a username and password. It will be stored in a secure keyring if one is available. If your credentials are in .pypirc they will be detected and used.

You can provide credentials to the extension via builout, for non-interactive situations. For example:

credentials =
interactive = no

uri =
username = user
password = chunky

Each of the credentials parts provides authentication details for a different uri. The part must contain a uri, user and password to be used by the extension.

The "interactive" option determines whether or not fetcher methods can prompt the user for input.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
