htpasswd Build Status

Description

htpasswd is a library for working with htpasswd user (only basic authorization) and group files. It supports CRYPT, MD5 (based) and MD5 (apache variant, 'apr1') encryption methods. To actually use MD5 encryption method you MUST have an openssl binary installed into system $PATH.

Dependencies

Sample usage

import htpasswd

with htpasswd.Basic("/path/to/user.db") as userdb:
    try:
        userdb.add("bob", "password")
    except htpasswd.basic.UserExists, e:
        print e
    try:
        userdb.change_password("alice", "newpassword")
    except htpasswd.basic.UserNotExists, e:
        print e

with htpasswd.Group("/path/to/group.db") as groupdb:
    try:
        groupdb.add_user("bob", "admins")
    except htpasswd.group.UserAlreadyInAGroup, e:
        print e
    try:
        groupdb.delete_user("alice", "managers")
    except htpasswd.group.UserNotInAGroup, e:
        print e

To use MD5 apache variant encryption, add mode="md5" to the constructor:

with htpasswd.Basic("/path/to/user.db", mode="md5") as userdb

or use md5-base for MD5 based encryotion:

with htpasswd.Basic("/path/to/user.db", mode="md5-base") as userdb
