What’s this business all about, then?

This repository helps you put access control into place to protect your secret pages by (deep breath):

hosting your secret page of static and/or dynamic content by using a free Heroku app
running a Python Flask server that uses Flask-Dance to authenticate visitors
with Github using OAuth which allows you fine-grained access control for your pages
using user attributes like organization or team membership or even things like how many
vowels a user has in their username.

Also, did I mention the attack rabbits?

warning: attack rabbits ahead

Where is everything?

Final pages:

Two branches in this repo compose the github-heroku-attack-rabbits documentation:

Two branches illustrate github-heroku-attack-rabbits in practice:

  • The secret branch contains the files needed to create the secret page.
    This repository is public, so obviously these aren’t actually secret,
    but in practice this would be in a protected repository.

  • The heroku-pages branch
    contains the content that is actually pushed to Heroku - that is,
    the final Flask app.
