Library to work with htpasswd user (basic authorization) and group files.

# htpasswd [![Build Status](https://secure.travis-ci.org/thesharp/htpasswd.png)](http://travis-ci.org/thesharp/htpasswd)

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

## Dependencies - Python 2.7 or 3.3 or 3.4 - [orderedmultidict](http://pypi.python.org/pypi/orderedmultidict/0.7) >= 0.7 - [future](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/future) - [nose](http://pypi.python.org/pypi/nose/) >= 1.1.2 (for tests)

## 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 encryotion, add mode="md5" to the constructor:

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

## Provided methods
