Wraps HTTP authentication in more friendly workflows.


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

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. These can then be used to automatically set the appropriate headers as needed.
