       Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Minimal - Minimal authentication store


           # you probably just want Store::Minimal under most cases,
           # but if you insist you can instantiate your own store:

           use Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Minimal;

           use Catalyst qw/

           __PACKAGE__->config( 'Plugin::Authentication' =>
                               default_realm => 'members',
                               realms => {
                                   members => {
                                       credential => {
                                           class => 'Password',
                                           password_field => 'password',
                                           password_type => 'clear'
                                       store => {
                                           class => 'Minimal',
                                           users => {
                                               bob => {
                                                   password => "s00p3r",
                                                   editor => 'yes',
                                                   roles => [qw/edit delete/],
                                               william => {
                                                   password => "s3cr3t",
                                                   roles => [qw/comment/],


       This authentication store lets you create a very quick and dirty user database in your
       application's config hash.

       You will need to include the Authentication plugin, and at least one Credential plugin to
       use this Store. Credential::Password is reccommended.

       It's purpose is mainly for testing, and it should probably be replaced by a more "serious"
       store for production.

       The hash in the config, as well as the user objects/hashes are freely mutable at runtime.


           The classname used for the store. This is part of Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication and
           is the method by which Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Minimal is loaded as the user
           store. For this module to be used, this must be set to 'Minimal'.

           The class used for the user object. If you don't specify a class name, the default
           Catalyst::Authentication::User::Hash will be used. If you define your own class, it
           must inherit from Catalyst::Authentication::User::Hash.

           This is a simple hash of users, the keys are the usenames, and the values are hashrefs
           containing a password key/value pair, and optionally, a roles/list of role-names pair.
           If using roles, you will also need to add the Authorization::Roles plugin.

           See the SYNOPSIS for an example.


       There are no publicly exported routines in the Minimal store (or indeed in most
       authentication stores)  However, below is a description of the routines required by
       Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication for all authentication stores.

   new( $config, $app, $realm )
       Constructs a new store object, which uses the user element of the supplied config hash ref
       as it's backing structure.

   find_user( $authinfo, $c )
       Keys the hash by the 'id' or 'username' element in the authinfo hash and returns the user.

       ... documentation fairy stopped here. ...

       If the return value is unblessed it will be blessed as

   from_session( $id )
       Delegates to "get_user".

   user_supports( )
       Chooses a random user from the hash and delegates to it.

   get_user( )
