sermoa: APIs and HTTP basic authentication


I am writing an API service which i'd like to authenticate via HTTP basic authentication. I've been searching all day, tried three different plugins, but none of them seem to be working. Has anyone tried this, or have any suggestions of a good plugin to use?

Thanks! :)

Update: Don't worry, i got it working with this: http://blog.codahale.com/2006/05/11/basic-http-authentication-with-rails-simple_http_auth/

Turns out it was the RESTful Rails plugin which was causing a conflict, and i don't think i need to use the RESTful Rails plugin after all.
