URL login

We are able to share a permalink of the application to access to protected data.

First you should configure it in the vars file like it:

    aes_key: foobarfoobar1234

The AES key must be either 16, 24, or 32 bytes long.

To do that you should use the urllogin command: .build/venv/bin/urllogin --help.

It generate a token like: auth=148b60cc... that you can add it in the query string of the permalink.

When the use use this link he will be connected as a normal user, then you should be sure that the session timeout is not too big.

You can change it in the vars file with:

    # in secound => One day
    timeout: 86400

How to build your token in your application?

The token is simply a json like this:

    u: <username>,
    p: <password>,
    t: <timestamp> // end of validity in secound

Witch is encrypted in AES with the provided key, and encoded in hexadecimal.
