This buildout extension allows your buildouts to use
eggs that are protected by basic auth. The minimum configuration:
[buildout] 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:
[basicauth] credentials = github interactive = no [github] uri = https://raw.github.com/ 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.
