http-auth-utils-hperrin

Parse, build and deal with HTTP authorization headers.

GitHub license Build status Coverage Status

WAIT!

This package only exists because hperrin needs a version with this bug fixed:

https://github.com/nfroidure/http-auth-utils/issues/17

If you click that link, and the bug has been fixed in the upstream version, it means this package is OBSOLETE! Use the upstream version instead.

Ok, now for the actual readme...

This library provide several utilities to parse and build WWW-Authenticate and Authorization headers as described per the HTTP RFC.

It is intended to be framework agnostic and could be used either on the server and the client side. It is also pure functions only, no side effect here. The functions are synchronous since only parsing headers of small size so no need for streams or anything asynchronous.

The module is easily extensible with new mechanisms, one very common way to extend it is to create a FAKE_TOKEN mechanism for development only that allows to directly provide the userId that should be authenticated. You can find an sample implementation in the Whook's framework repository.
