# PlugBasicAuth

This is a Plug module for adding [HTTP Basic Authentication]( to a set of routes. Only basic authentication is currently supported.

## Installation

Add `plug_basic_auth` to the `deps` function in your project's `mix.exs` file:

defp deps do
  [{:plug_basic_auth, "~> 1.0"}]
Then run `mix do deps.get, deps.compile` inside your project's directory.

## Usage

PlugBasicAuth can be used just as any other Plug. Add PlugBasicAuth before all of the other plugs you want to happen after successful authentication using the `plug` function.

defmodule TopSecret do
  import Plug.Conn
  use Plug.Router
  plug PlugBasicAuth, username: "Wayne", password: "Knight"
  plug :match
  plug :dispatch
  get "/top_secret" do
    |> put_resp_content_type("text/plain")
    |> send_resp(200, "Hello, Newman.")

PlugBasicAuth uses the same license as Plug and the Elixir programming language. See the [license file]( for more information.
