Laravel 5+ Middleware to enforce basic auth on your application code.
An automatic piece of middleware for Laravel 5+, will prompt users accessing your code base (static assets are excempt) to enter a username/password before seeing your application. Very useful for things like staging environments.
Install via composer
composer require owenmelbz/basic-auth-enforcement
Register the service provider - typically done inside the
app.phpproviders array e.g
ENFORCE_BASIC_AUTH=trueto your application environment config e.g
Add your username
Add your password
Enjoy your stress free environment agnostic basic auth.
You can public the config using
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="OwenMelbz\BasicAuthEnforcement\BasicAuthEnforcementServiceProvider" which will allow you to exclude IPs from the checks as well as custom endpoints, which is useful for payment gateway ping backs etc.
Too often we've wasted time configuring password protection, with proxy systems like CloudFlare, with apache development machines and nginx production, this removes all the headache and can simply be turned off and on at a whim.
